2014 Resident Artist Exhibition

Through collaboration, a shared process of experimentation and creative problem solving, the Living Arts Centre Resident Artists create innovative pieces that transform the exhibition space. Working across studios, the artists employ a series of systematic approaches to bridge the gap between studio practice and the gallery. Works created reflect pertinent issues influencing artists today, such as labour and value, technology, production and progress. This exhibition challenges artists to reconsider the main focus of the Gallery, beyond the display of artworks to the facilitation of the production of significant works. Overhaul features work in glass, wood, ceramics, textiles, photography, painting, drawing, sculpture, installation and new media.

Overhaul will travel from the Living Arts Centre Gallery to Queen Elizabeth Park Community and Cultural Centre for its spring exhibition program.

Participating artists include:
Matthew Agostinis, Matthew Crosby + Jared Lawee, Tommy Cudmore, Melodie Flook, Dayna Gedney, Alyssa Getz, Natasha Gouveia + Pat Hertzberg, Cathy Griggs, Noelle Hamlyn + Colleen Snell,
Jolanta Jung, Karen Krupa, Michelle Lewin + Alfred Engerer, Kelly Lowe, Anya Mielniczek,
Jennifer Norman, Lucy Roussel, Ishrat Raza Suhrwardy, Jean Willoughby

Wonder & Whimsy

Gallery Exhibition: Tuesday, April 22 - Sunday, May 25, 2014
Opening reception: Thursday, April 24, 7 - 9 pm - RSVP

Wonder & Whimsy features the work of three regional artists using fanciful designs to depict diverse narratives. Amanda Baron, Virginia Lee, and Michael Rennick offer mediations on dream sequencing and traditional folklore through works that capture the strange and curious. While imagery is symbolic and reminiscent of popular tales, characters portrayed suggest intricate autobiographical truths that encourage patrons to indulge their imaginations. Fantastical and full of whimsy, this exhibition explores the role of storytelling in art through a variety of forms, including contemporary drawing, painting, sculpture, installation, digital & mixed media collage.
