About the Exhibitions:

Angela Grossmann: Troublemakers

Curator: Lynn Ruscheinsky, PhD
January 17 – March 9, 2019
Artist/Curator’s Talk “Hello Dolly”: Friday, January 18, 12:30-1:20 pm
Artist Angela Grossmann in conversation with curator Dr. Lynn Ruscheinsky

Jaime Angelopoulos: Oblique Choreography

Curator: Ivan Jurakic
January 17 – March 16, 2019
Toronto-based artist Jaime Angelopoulos is known for her spirited explorations of form and colour. Her sculptures and drawings share a complementary yet complicated relationship. On the surface, the artist wrestles with aspects of abstraction and anthropomorphism, and the works exhibit a kind of joyful exuberance, but they also operate on a deeper social and psychological level. <more>

Michael Allgoewer: 1514

A meditation on Dürer’s Melencolia
January 17 – March 16, 2019
Artist Talk:  Thursday, February 7, 12:30-1:20 pm
Taking Albrecht Dürer’s 1514 print, Melencolia I, as an inspiration and starting point, this installation by Hamilton-based artist Michael Allgoewer deconstructs Dürer’s image into discrete sculptural elements; with oblique references to Judd, Johns, Kiefer and Beuys. The exhibition includes nine recent sculptural and mixed media works. <more>
