EXHIBITION

MAR 23 - MAY 4, 2019

Gatherers at Gallery 101 in Ottawa, ON. Opening reception: Mar 23, 3 - 5 pm. Artist Talk: Mar 23, 2 - 3 pm.

The idea for Gatherers began with six artists’ desire to showcase various approaches to collage as a contemporary art medium.  As a body of work, the show opens up the definition of what collage can be; to include a range of techniques for assembling found images and objects by analog, photographic, and digital means. In each of their own ways, the works of the six artists: Regreta Brown, Rebecca Clouatre, Kristina Corre, Lori Langille, Olivia Johnston, and Amy Thompson present quiet techniques and quiet approaches to a medium that has been historically maximalist, loud, and jumbled.


While showcasing these unique approaches to collage was the original impetus for the show, the show's title: Gatherers is the rich, thematic jumping off point for the works in the exhibition. ‘Gathering’ describes an essential part of our practices. As gatherers, we are all involved in very careful, purposeful, and constant practices of collecting - our works are products of what we gather. In putting this show together, we’ve faced our collections to consider: beyond what we gather, how do we put it all together? How do we edit it down? How does the act of gathering relate to ideas of sustenance, ritual, ceremony, and what we hold sacred or precious? Who and how do we gather as people?  


COLLAGE WORKSHOP

EXHIBITION

Unnatural Symmetry at The Yards Collective in the Rochester Public Market, Rochester, NY.

My piece titled ostrich will be included in the international group show Unnatural Symmetry, hosted by the Rochester Collage Society in Rochester, New York! 

Show description: All around us we are immersed by aspects of life which do not quite sit soundly when we take the time to investigate them deeper. The world is full of shapes, concepts, and truths which sit on opposite sides of an axis which seems to find balance, yet we are left to question how that balance is achieved. Featuring over fifty artists, the Rochester Collage Society aims to explore the concept of “Unnatural Symmetry” through understandings and correspondences of balances and imbalances of the world, life, and perceptions. These are found in forms such as unnatural and natural, real and imaginary, predator and prey, life and death, and many more.

The Rochester Collage Society was founded in March of 2017. The focus of the group is to share and grow the appreciation of collage as an approach to visual media. 


EXHIBITION

NOV 30, 2017 - JAN 20, 2018

Articulations at Studio Sixty Six in Ottawa, ON. 

I'm thrilled that one of my pieces will be included in this important exhibition. Details below:

Co-curated by Studio Sixty Six and Myka Burke, Articulations (November 30-January 6) features the artwork of 39 women/femmes artists working in the National Capital Region (unceded Algonquin territory). As a landmark year in terms of Canadian colonial history, it is a crucial time to identify ways in which our country can and should grow. Historically and currently, female-identifying artists (especially those of colour) are, sadly, underrepresented in Canada’s art galleries. 

As a gallery run by women, Studio Sixty Six wishes to focus our efforts towards encouraging local Canadian women/femmes artists. Co-Curator Myka Burke interviewed all 40 artists regarding their experiences and perspectives as women/femme artists working in the region, compiled and available to listen during the exhibition and on a special online minisite.

10% of all artwork sales from the duration of the exhibition will be donated to OCTEVAW (Ottawa Coalition to End Violence Against Women), who will be present at the reception to share information about their impressive initiatives.

Participating artists:
ALEXANDRE AIMÉE / GABRIELA AVILA-YIPTONG / AMY BARKER / BARBARA BOLTON / MELISSA BLACKMAN / NATALIE BRUVELS / REBECCA CLOUÂTRE / HEIDI CONROD / KRISTINA CORRE / JOYCE CRAGO / ANNE DAHL / BRENDA DUNN / VIRGINIA DUPUIS / MARISA GALLEMIT / ABIGAIL GOSSAGE / ANNA GRIFFITHS / LEA HAMILTON / PETRA HALKES / MELLE HARRIS / LESLIE HOSSACK / SAYWARD JOHNSON / SHARON KATZ / LILLY KOLTUN / CHARLYNNE LAFONTAINE /  HILDE LAMBRECHTS / LESIA MARUSCHAK / KELSEY McGRUER / MIQUE MICHELLE / JUDY MORRIS DUPONT / KOSISOCHUKWU NNEBE / SUSAN ROSTON / KATHRYN SHRIVER / RUTH STEINBERG / JOANNA SWIM / ANNE WANDA TESSIER / PATRICIA WALLACE / VERONICA WATERFALL / YVONNE WIEGERS
