A Passion for Abstraction


A Passion for Abstraction focuses on some of the most significant paintings, sculptures and artists in the collection. With this first introduction into the collecting sensibility of John and June Mann, a love for modern Canadian abstraction emerges.

Presented in cooperation with Ron Moore (Moore Gallery, Toronto)

John and June Mann have been collecting and living with art for over fifty years, both at home and at work. Now they want to share their passion and offer their collection for sale. Drawing on the stories and the artists represented in their collection, each exhibition will include additional Canadian contemporary and historical art offering something new to discover with each visit.

Located at the 13th Street Winery in the Niagara Region and nestled amid an impressive contemporary sculpture garden, visitors to The Gallery will encounter a unique and dynamic environment that will expand their relationship to Art, Wine and Food.

The Gallery is dedicated to delivering the same exceptional customer experience as the Winery. It is a place for visitors and clients to congregate and escape; to relax and discover; and to experience and learn about the joys of collecting and living with art.

Come for the Art – Stay for the Experience
