Tom Campbell: Outside/In Public Art Project

Agora Gallery is pleased to present a public art project called Outside/In, featuring sculpture by Tom Campbell in shop windows around Stratford's historic Market Square. As people are being encouraged to social distance and remain outside as much as possible due to Covid-19, Campbell's life-like and intriguing sculptures of figures doing outdoor activities - sitting around a campfire, looking up at the sky, enjoying water at the beach, siteseeing - appear in windows along Market Place. Outside/In has been realized in collaboration with The Little Prince Cinema, Cora Couture, Mone-Thai Restaurant, The Cat Cafe & Ramshackle Industries. Tom Campbell was born in England and grew up in Stratford. He studied stage design, painting and sculpture in London, England (at Camden Arts Centre & Camberwell School of Art and Design) before returning to Canada in 1982. In 1985, he had his first solo exhibition at Gallery Stratford, won the Kitchener-Waterloo Gallery prize for painting and joined Bau-Xi Gallery (Toronto and Vancouver). He has been teaching at Toronto School of Art since 1989 and at the Ikaria Cultural Centre in Greece since 2000. In 2015 Campbell was invited to have a solo exhibition at Agora Gallery, where he continues to exhibit his work and teach painting classes in the winter.
