Arts Commons Visual Arts and Media Programming presents:
Window Galleries (across from Max Bell Theatre in Arts Commons)
Coming to the Window Galleries in Arts Commons (formerly EPCOR CENTRE for the Performing Arts) are three artists who collectively explore how to visually express relationships and tell stories through the use of materials and creative methodology.
April 8 to June 26, 2015
Reception: Thursday, May 14, 5 - 8 pm, Upper Centre Court
The three exhibits include Les Femmes by Tasha Barrie, a contemplative series of photographic portraits that examine matriarchal relationships, which Barrie captured when she was living as an expatriate in Paris.
Sharon Hogg’s Between the Swan and Hercules explores the connections between order and chaos through oil paint, asking the question, “Must I always look for order in every chaos?”
With his series, Bright, Ryan Puchalski uses photography to capture oil in water, creating a fractal effect that he then mirrors into a symmetrical image. By mirroring the image, he attempts to manufacture balance in something that is not able to be controlled, like oil in water.
Window Galleries is located in Arts Commons across from the interior doors to the Max Bell Theatre. Come see how stories can be told starting on April 8th.
