Past Exhibitions

Natalie Krolikowski

We invite you to be a part of this artist's first exhibit! Natalie has been an artist for near a decade, taking an experimental approach to both her medium and style - acrylics and abstract expressionism. For "Wish You Were Here" she has delved into the darker parts of her psyche in search of the light within.  As she comes to a fork in the road of life, Natalie explores the two distinct sides of her personality.

Transitions is an exhibition that expresses changes seen and felt in nature, through textile. Taking inspiration from the constant movement of life-- growth, death and rebirth. The constant life cycle that nature performs often goes unnoticed, but is multi-faceted once contemplated. Taking cues from nature, Transitions finds equilibrium between the complexities and simplicities of continual life processes.

Kristin Sweetland

The soirée will kick off the official opening of the exhibition during which selected photographs will be displayed until April 4th.

Artist Talk by Sue LloydSue Lloyd

Sue Lloyd

Opening Reception Thursday, May 2nd 7 - 9pm

Sue Lloyd uses her family’s small woods in Prince Edward County as the basis for a new body of work. Photo-realistic, the images are nonetheless constructed, each from hundreds of camera-raw files. The cracks, omissions and stuttering repetitions are equal to the moments of clarity and focus. Coherency is approximate: the pieces never line up exactly. These images were formed over time. Photographed in fall, composed over winter, it seems only fitting that they are seen in spring. The mother log is poised at the cross-roads of dormancy, death, transition and re-generation.

Sydney Lancaster

Opening Reception Friday February 1st,  7 - 9 pm
Exhibition Runs until March 15th 

21st Century Nesting Practices, is a mixed-media installation by Sydney Lancaster that examines the reality of specific objects, namely birds’ nests, and what they may signify psychologically and emotionally. The exhibition consists of digital photographs, gel transfers on birch panel, charcoal and ink works on paper, video projection and sculptural ‘nests’ made of welding rod and wire. The projection, titled “500 lines about childhood, or it can take a bird up to 500 trips to complete a nest” is a video rendering of a collaborative poem reflecting on family, gender, the creation of identity and sense of self. She explores the physical and conceptual aspects of nests as liminal objects suggesting meaning in both complicated and contradictory ways. They exist as homes as well as empty spaces - as markers for absence and loss – at the same time, they point to the potential for growth, protection, and nurturance.
