While having completed hundreds of private, corporate and public commissions, he has also lectured and exhibited extensively.

The Milwaukee Art Museum’s retrospective on Peteran toured nine museums across the United States.

Two books have been published on his work and he is included in many private and museum collections, including University of Toronto Art Museum, the Milwaukee Art Museum, the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the Royal Ontario Museum.

He is a professor at OCAD University in Toronto.

This event is free to the public. The Center for Art in Wood interprets, nurtures, and champions creative engagement and expansion of art, craft, and design in wood to enhance the public’s understanding and appreciation of it. A suggested donation of $5 per person enables us to provide programs and exhibitions throughout the year.
