Loop Gallery presents
Saturday, March 31 - Sunday, April 22, 2018
Opening: Saturday, March 31 at 2 pm
Linda Heffernan continues her practice of working with open source satellite imagery, and her preoccupation with the impact humans have on the natural world. In this exhibition, she uses contemporary Google Earth images to recreate a series of First World War battle sites. Inspired partly by the upcoming centennial of the Armistice of November 11, 1918, the resulting images juxtapose the violence of war against impressionistic landscapes, commenting on the passage of time and the ultimate resiliency of nature.

Chun Hua Catharine Dong
Chun Hua Catherine Dong is a Chinese-born visual artist based in Montreal working with performance, photography, and video. This exhibition will include her recent immersive installation “They”, a four-channel film that takes audiences into four women’s worlds to closely examine their ritualized daily lives, their obsessions, their struggles, and their determinations of being who they are.
Abbozzo Gallery, Project Room
A Contact Photography Festival Exhibition. Rocks presume a sense of stability, constancy and strength; we imagine them as immovable and unyielding. Yet they exist within a slow progression of time, incrementally changing, or being changed, by their environment and other events.
Galbraith's photographs document the on-going effects of time on physical landforms, connecting the precision of science, the narrative of history and the subjectivity of art in response to a process of transformation which both precedes and defies human intervention.
Lee Contemporary Art
My recent work radiates saturated and subtle colour in response to the narrative of light over land and water. "Atmospheric abstraction" describes these paintings inspired by clouds and radiant light. Lake Simcoe’s colour, space and light have informed my painting practice after my return to this landscape several years ago. Remembered land/lakescapes are imbued with the cumulative effect of looking and remembering. Colour fields and gestural marks are hallmarks of these works.

Leaside Library Gallery

Her art practice includes painting, printmaking and relief sculpture. Her work is exhibited and collected in Canada, Germany, England and The Netherlands.

Seal invites viewers to celebrate his interpretation of other worlds and encourages them to explore his dense visionary imagery. Artist talk: Sunday, March 25, 2:00 p.m. All welcome. Free admission. Wheelchair accessible.
Propeller Gallery (South Gallery)
FOREST WATCH features works on paper and wood. On recent road trips in California, Saskatchewan, Alberta and the North West Territories, Phyllis Gordon has been seeking out areas where major wild fires have impacted the land. These drawings and prints imagine the fires, examine their impact, and pay homage to affected trees. Earlier drawings from extended time spent in the Haliburton Forest celebrate thriving forest life.
Art Gallery of Hamilton
Hamilton-based artist Stephanie Vegh was invited to explore the Gallery’s historic and modern holdings and envisaged aesthetic and thematic links between three seemingly disparate artworks: Edmund Kanoldt, Sappho on the Cliff of Leucadia (1879); Paul Nash, Monster Shore (1939); and Aline Myles Banting, Self Portrait (c.1932). Shown in situ with new drawings by Vegh, the collection artworks will be imbued with new meaning – and set on a narrative trajectory to reflect the ecological uncertainty of our present time.
Lu Robitaille in the following exhibitions:
North Simcoe Sports and Recreation Centre
Lu's work is inspired by the spectacular vastness of Georgian Bay and its surroundings. Unlike traditional water colors, Lu has developed a technique using a somewhat dry brush with vivid opaque water colors that articulate this magnificent place she calls home.

As a leader of Contemporary Figurative Op Art, Alex Garant's oil paintings offer a graphic quality combined with traditional portrait techniques. Garant uses patterns, duplication of elements, symmetry and image superposition as key elements of her imagery. Alex Garant's paintings are certainly conversation pieces as they are meant to engage the observers into an image investigation process and hopefully enlist their senses differently while doing so.
