Exhibitions

David Halliday

David Halliday’s photographic series, Threadbare, profoundly builds on his previous work, at once announcing the photographer’s maturity as an artist. Provocative iconography of lost Americana - heavily decayed objects whose original intention has been exhausted - is given a new sort of vitality as his subject matter. Read More

Kate Blacklock

Kate Blacklock’s medium-scale works on metal present choreographed tableaus reminiscent of Dutch Vanitas paintings in one series and nightscapes, recalling Japanese screen paintings, in the other. The compositions, which are created using a flatbed scanner as a camera, are captured on dye infused aluminum. They are described by the artist as existing in an ambiguous space, not subject to the laws of gravity. Each of the works conjures an enigmatic moment frozen in time. Read More

John Hartman

John Hartman, one of Canada’s most renowned contemporary painters, conceives of cities not as man-made anomalies but rather as provocative landscapes. With a unique and vibrant color palette, astral-like perspective and obvious deference, he captures the essence and lifeblood of the chosen terrain. New Orleans From Above presents aerial views of the city and surrounding areas through the artist’s distinct voice. The compositions include New Orleans from above Algiers, the CBD and Mississippi; as well as Bayou Lafourche, Delacroix, Port Fourchon, Yscloskey and Shell Beach. The exhibition is comprised of large- and small-scale oil paintings on linen and birch panel, as well as watercolor on paper. Read More

Courtney Egan

Courtney Egan’s projection-based sculptural installations meld nature with technology, delivering an experience that is both pleasing and disconcerting. The ethereal projections – converging on walls, floors and sculptural elements – are inspired by the growing frequency of human exposure to nature via computers or television. Egan creates stunning yet “subtly impossible, hybrid tableaus” which envelope the viewer in a conversation between memory of the natural world and a new experience with a plant or flower. She explains the fundamental irony of the experience, stating, “We get closer and farther away from the natural world simultaneously when we experience it through a technological lens.” Read More

Edward Burtynsky

Water is a series of large-scale aerial photographs by world-renowned Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky. The images, often equivocally abstract, portray humankind’s relationship with water and the dramatic effects of industrialization and the consequences of our interference. Burtynsky has traveled the world over the past five years documenting waterfronts, farmlands, irrigation plots, rivers and various water maintenance systems resulting in aesthetically powerful imagery that is at once striking and unnerving. Burtynsky, who strives to find an equal balance between form and content, hopes that the imagery in his work challenges the viewer and initiates a thought process that will eventually lead to a more conscientious view of the importance of this natural and rapidly diminishing resource.

Bruce Davenport, Jr.

Bruce Davenport, Jr.’s vivid color marker drawings provide detailed reenactments – the bands in precise number and formation and the multitude of spectators surrounding them. The small- and large-scale works on paper are flecked with the artist’s thoughts and tributes, interspersed between the crowds and streets. The rendered still moments evoke the energy and ceremony of the entire procession. The artist has been described as, “not so much a self-taught artist as he is a self-taught anthropologist.” Read More

Gene Koss

Gene Koss blends simple process with advanced fabrication techniques to create glass sculptures that reveal the constant inspiration provided by the rural landscapes of his youth and life. The internationally known artist’s vision remains profoundly humanist, yet this recent work presents an intentional rawness. Several of the works in this exhibition incorporate found object pieces that have been woven in with the artist’s own dialogue. The work ranges in scale from large cast glass and steel sculptures to smaller blocks dubbed “glass drawings.” Read More

Willie Birch

Willie Birch is a storyteller, compelled to document the world in which he lives. With Southern Gothic: An Insider’s View, he presents the natural world around us, inviting the viewer to observe and interpret the apparent patterns and symbology found in our surroundings. Devoid of the human figure often found in the artist’s work, these large-scale paintings on paper and bronzes explore a deliberate yet improvisational landscape. Read More
