The Lost and Forgotten: Canada’s Vanishing Landscape
November 28, 2013 – January 4, 2014
Opening Reception: December 7, 2 – 4 pm
Every summer local artist Michael E. Glover bikes through the Canadian countryside to find inspiration. Astride his Triumph, Glover’s passion for touring has delivered him to many unique destinations…and after more than a decade of criss-crossing Canada, his paintings bare witness.
A painter, musician, storyteller, writer, and passionate Canadian, Michael’s search for the less traditionally picturesque parts of this country uncovers the often overlooked or unseen. His paintings, although landscape in nature, do not follow conventional subject matter. Michael is attracted to the abandoned and isolated parts of the Canadian landscape, the rusted and deserted, the unused and unwanted.
Treating colour, form and space like living forces, his compositions are representational, and “glow with a peculiar painterly light.”
”Much of this exhibition is the landscape of this vast country, but executed with an intimacy that only comes from the artist’s understanding of that subject” Dorette Carter, Curator of the AGN states.
Wendy Cain & Christine Benson
October 16 – November 23, 2013
Opening Reception: October 19, 2 – 4 pm
Cain and Benson began their relationship in the Printmaking Program at the Ontario College of Art and Design, where Christine was Wendy’s student.
Although the initial relationship was based on in the educational model of mentor and student, it has continued and matured as both are still actively working in Printmaking. Since both work in a small scale with modest colour palette, the works combine and engage each other in a lively conversation.
The AGN’s curator encourage some new work for the exhibition that is collaborative in nature, thus the exhibition will include solo work by both artist and eight original collaborative works.
