New exhibition, Ties That Bind, by Brian Burke on display at ArtZone

Review by Michael Oliver

On probably the coldest evening all winter, Brian Burke's new exhibition Ties That Bind began its run at ArtZone Gallery in Charlottetown. The weather seemed appropriate for viewing paintings so austere and bleak and disconcerting.
