Kipjones | second nature facsimile
Saturday, June 23 - Wednesday, July 15, 2018 

Kipjones’ works in second nature facsimile seek to address the troubling tensions between humans’ vision of nature and the natural in the quest to create a contemporary civilization. They are playful acts of research into the notions and process of the cast object as a facsimile or copy of an ideal.

Through the use of a broad range of materials, the various elements that constitute each individual form create an interconnected discourse between the objects.

Selections from "Undertow"
Saturday, September 1 - Sunday, September 9, 2018

IMPACT10 - Encuentros - International Printmaking Conference
Calle Francisco Cubría 3
Santander, Cantabria, Spain 39007 

Undertow, a suite of tall, scroll-like relief prints incorporating carved, printed figures and the printed natural patterns of wood grain, addresses the subject of saving and being saved, through imagery of paired female figures in the water, in a sequence that may be read as a narrative or a poem. Undertow addresses the shifting forces and desires that might occur during the moments of a critical encounter involving rescue.

281 Front Street
Key West, Florida USA 33040

Janice Colbert paints quilt patterns in a hard-edge style on heritage wood ironing boards. Their sixty-inch length and eighteen-inch width (similar in stature to the female quilter) are a window, to a domestic period when labour divided gender and to the quilters who worked with what was ‘found’ to create their works of art.

Drawn entirely from the Florida Keys community, forty works of art illuminate the remarkable achievements of women artists, addressing the gender imbalance in the art world.

Landscape reflections

Wednesday, August 1 - Saturday, September 1, 2018
Opening: Sunday, June 3 at 7:30PM

The Art Gallery of Bancroft
10 Flint Avenue
Bancroft, ON K0L 1C0

My paintings are an emotional response to what I see in the natural landscape in the area that surrounds my home and studio. Ethereal in nature, images of landscapes and water are painted from memory. Oil paint allows me to scratch into the paint to reveal the colours beneath.

Painting for me is a poetic expression…a state of mind, rather than a photographic copy of nature. They are my visual diaries celebrating the beauty and peace found in nature.

A series of paintings inspired originally from my reaction to Canada's 150 invasion celebration which grew to encompass the universal symbol of the canoe as a confrontation and sharing of cultures across time. There will also be a few pieces from my Dream Blanket Etc. series. My work is a form of symbolic realism that, to some, may seem abstract. I work in acrylics, have been painting for 60 years and have exhibited in Canada, USA, France and West Indies.

After transferring the films to video, Siegfried went through each frame with film editing software, capturing still images that she felt that she would have taken had she been in the same circus back lot situation where her grandmother had been. Siegfried refers to her CIRCUS! project as a cross-generational collaboration.

Sheryl Dudley | The Sea Was Never Blue
Saturday, July 21 - Wednesday, August 8, 2018
Opening: Saturday, July 21 at 2pm

‘The Sea Was Never Blue’ series began as an attempt to record incidental moments — a ray of sunlight piercing a kitchen window, clouds casting shadows across tall buildings. Too ephemeral to capture, these moments nonetheless remain embedded in memory, taking on a filmic quality that suggests the quivering shadows of trees or figures walking along a sidewalk.

Kelly Cade | BioIntervals
Saturday, July 21 -Sunday, August 12, 2018
Opening: Saturday, July 21 at 2pm

‘BioIntervals’ explores the intersection of our created intervals — our systems of measurement — and how they shape our experience of nature. It examines how our impulse to measure, categorize and define the natural world may in fact dissociate us further from that which we are trying to understand.

Michelle MacKinnon
A Rendering of the Once Familiar

Thursday, September 27 - Saturday, November 3, 2018
Opening: Thursday, September 27 AT 6PM

Alison Milne Gallery
134 Osler Street, Suite 3
Toronto, ON M6N 2Y8

MacKinnon’s practice dwells on the (un)familiarities of transience; not being without a home, but when the traditional idea of home is suddenly dismantled. She explores how one can be comforted by people and objects beyond spatial boundaries in attempt to (re)familiarize herself with what was, or still could be, home.

Thursday, September 13 - Wednesday, October 31, 2018
Vernissage: Thursday, September 13 at 5PM

Influenced by natural history and painting, this exhibition of prints focuses on a collection of objects and fragments taken from both urban and rural spaces, and then recorded in illusory, scanned images. The images in Magpie Landscapes reference landscape and its materials, while abstracting typical perceptions of space, scale, gesture, and the life of objects.

Artist Talk: Saturday, June 2 at 1PM

Fort St. John North Peace Museum
9323 - 100th Street
Fort St. John, BC
V1J 4N4

Images chronicle the life of Dr. Garnet Kearney. After serving as a surgeon in WWI, he went west permanently. His many adventures are local lore in the Peace River area and photographs sent home to his Ontario relatives were a window into his frontier life. He conducted surgery by radio on a distant trapper, converted his jeep into the town's first ambulance. Prints on embroidered linens suggest his Ottawa Valley Victorian upbringing and provide an evocative printing surface.

Senbazuru (for Sadako Sasaki)

Friday, June 29 - Friday, July 27, 2018

Embassy of Japan in Canada
255 Sussex Drive
Ottawa, ON K1N 9E6

Senbazuru (for Sadako) is a large scale installation. There are one thousand hand folded paper cranes that appear to be flying out of a book and away into the universe. The paper I have used to create the one thousand cranes has come from books about the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. Despite the material used to create the installation, my goal is to create a beautiful image of peace.

Monday, August 6, 2018

Bronte Heritage Waterfront Park

Dreams and Realities

Wednesday, September 12 - Thursday, October 18, 2018

Old Town Hall
76 Main Street South
Waterford, ON N0E 1Y0

The exhibition comprises works from a series of mixed media paintings on Mylar along with mixed media paintings wood panels.

The Mylar paintings address competing and contradictory aspects of female identity via the central image of a red skirt that acts as a metonym for femaleness.

The paintings on wood panels also focus on female identity. In them, wallpaper imagery interferes with figures to symbolize the co-mingling of the past and present in the formation of selfhood and identity.
