Garden Party
June 15 to July 1
Opening night: June 15 @ 7pm

This past winter I have become increasingly interested in colours and how they shape images together and even give them meanings. The simple act of placing one colour beside another can create a dialogue about reality and creation, placing two things beside each other to communicate inside of their own world. Our choices of dialogue with our environment echo each other in colour and form, with only the domination of the one over the other as communication between flower, face, structure and movement. Thus my exhibition Garden Party is an ideology.

Garden Party is a celebration of that unresolvable tension between a loose organic world and our constructed one. Viewers can get lost in the work, ponder the meanings, ideologies and communications.


Meg Walker & Jeffrey Langille

Noisy Pictures
July 6 to July 22
Opening night: July 6 @ 7pm

Noisy Pictures presents the work of two artists who explore relationships between sound and image. Jeffrey Langille has set a static landscape in motion through the act of walking with a camera; Meg Walker creates still images in response to a selection of her ongoing Yukon field recordings through the act of drawing.


Virginia Mitford
Alluvium, To Wash Against
July 27 to Aug 12
Opening night: July 27 @ 7pm

Alluvium, To Wash Against presents two bodies of work by Virginia Mitford that consider printmaking to be both a subject and medium. A Study of Action and Movement is a series of short video animations that uses an extensive series of multilayered stone lithographs as stills. Through the project she looks at how the repetitive gestures involved in printmaking can ground herself within her body and her physical surroundings, while linking the process of lithography to her childhood experience of a flood. Viscera documents the varied discomforts of her body throughout a month of drawing. Using one plate to make many variations of the shifting image, she also explores the capacity of limestone (used as the printing plate for stone lithography) to change and yet hold the history of mark-making within its chemical structure.
