Exhibition: WALLSPACE Gallery, Body of Work

Body of Work: Featuring new works by Gosia, David Lidbetter, Vanessa McKernan, and Stan Wany

Opening Reception: Saturday, October 5, 5-7 pm

As life feels increasingly chaotic, how does the body adapt and perform to cope? In what ways do we convince ourselves and others that a heightened sense of busyness should be worn as a badge of honour? Seeing the body as performance, we mould the masks we wear to live within the public eye. As we become conditioned to our own sense of chaos, let us look inwards and within companionship for solace and truth as means to reorient ourselves towards caring and mindfulness.

We invite four regional artists to explore the human figure as an expression of chaos or as a means of rebellion against chaos. The body as protest, the body as a safe house, the body as a medium for creative declaration.

to Jul 11

Exhibition: Day Trip, Gallery 555

Featuring the work of 8 Toronto based painters, the exhibition explores themes related to leisure and impermanence. The artists explore these themes through various strategies including depicting the nuanced relationship between humans and their environment in the experience of  leisure, the enjoyment and exploitation of nature, depictions of fantastical and manufactured landscapes, and through the tradition of nature-morte and the impermanence of the human experience.  

Working in a range of traditions from abstraction to still-life to surrealism to expressionism the works in the exhibition range  in use of materials from traditional oil paints, to tree bark, to sparkles and inkjet, to wax and carbon pencil and more.    

 Works by: Amanda Baron, Chen Cao, Kaitlin Johnson, Vanessa McKernan, James Olley, Ester Pugliese, Cortney Stevenson, Daniel St -Amant
