CLIENT OPENING: Jeff Thomas’ “A Necessary Fiction” at Art Gallery of Mississauga

For a second night in row my client Jeff Thomas will be featured in summer exhibitions opening in the Greater Toronto Area. Last night was the Art Gallery of Ontario’s (AGO) Every.Now.Then: Reframing Nationhood and tonight is his solo show A Necessary Fiction: My Conversation with George Hunter and Edward S.
