On exhibition at Pentimento until February 26th are the works of Haydn Llewellyn Davies and Eva Koller Davies. Both Eva and Haydn were chosen as young children by Lismer of the Group of Seven to attend his art classes at what is now OCAD and the AGO. After an incredibly successful career in advertising ultimately ending with a Vice Presidency at McCann Erickson Advertising Hayden left that world to fulfill a lifelong dream of working as a sculptor. His works have been influenced by his travels to Japan and the far east as well as his homeland in Wales. Haydn's works have been part of the landscape of Toronto from the 1970's until the present. His work can be seen in Trinity Square, Toronto.
Eva worked in a career as a display artist and consultant for Toronto's most prestigious retailers of the 60's-80's...Eaton's, Simpson's, Hudson's Bay Co. etc. During the war years Eva drew Captain Marvel for Marvel Comics.
