Just as she was beginning her life in Canada as a professional artist, Paraskeva Clark (1898 – 1986) was hired circa 1933 – 34 to work for René Cera in the design department of the Timothy Eaton Company in Toronto. Her career as a commercial artist was relatively brief, and the work that survives from these commissions is rare. Clark was hired due to her knowledge of modern European art and her experience working as a theatre designer in Petrograd, now St. Petersburg. Along with a roster of emerging Canadian painters that included Pegi Nicol MacLeod, Clark promoted modernist sensibilities through the paintings she produced for the large window displays at the Eaton’s flagship store located at College and Yonge Streets.

All that you touch is an exhibition that showcases seven contemporary artists who work with unconventional materials or who use materials in a non-traditional way. Individually, their interests range from traditional connections to the land, familial and geographical histories, and the recuperation of cultural stereotypes. Together, they share an interest in the deeper meanings embedded in their chosen materials via cultural histories and contemporary practices.
