Amy Shackleton and Julian Brown | Playing with Fire and Ice

April 5 – June 20, 2021

Artist Amy Shackleton and graphic designer/animator Julian Brown are taking over the Permanent Collection Gallery with their collaborative exhibition, Playing with Fire and Ice.

In this exhibition, Shackleton creates a 50-foot-long mural depicting the lasting effects of climate change in Canada. Images of melting glaciers float amongst architectural elements, which are also met by the scorched limbs of a burning forest. Complete with the use of her signature drip painting technique, Shackleton transforms the Gallery’s walls into a fully immersive encounter. Stay grounded within the imagery or take one step further with Brown’s Augmented Reality experience. With the use of a smart device, viewers will be able to digitally extend the environment with animated forms of water and ice cascading from their screen.

Booking appointments can be made by telephone, 905-372-0333 or online here.
