In 1965, Dorothy Cameron was no longer running the Here and Now Gallery on Cumberland Street. She had opened the Dorothy Cameron Gallery on Yonge Street. And Ron Bloore was no longer painting in the manner he was when he showed at the Here And Now in 1962.
Before the opening, photographer John Reeves did a shoot with the artist using colour film which was exceptional on a newspaper shoot in those days but requested so as to highlight that all the latest works were white while the earlier work was decidedly not. Some of the black and white shots are in the photo album portraits (here).
This solo Bloore exhibition was co-curated with Barry Lord who was then the Director of Gallery New Brunswick where the show went after Toronto.

Time Magazine & “Artist Bloore”
There is much to say about this show. For the time being (the time being December 2022) we will let the story be told by the images we have here. The Bloore Estate does not have a single work from this exhibition. However, three of the pieces shown below are, as of this writing, in the hands of an independent Toronto dealer.
