In the article “Paper Gardens”, Paul Gessel of Galleries West discusses Fiona Ackerman’s Glasslands series, now on display at Gallery Jones as part of our Summer Breaks show.

To the writer, Ackerman’s unique style brings to mind a piece of Canadian history, The Tangled Garden (1916)– an iconic work by the Group of Seven’s J.E.H. MacDonald.

An upcoming exhibition at Elizabeth Leach Gallery in Portland, OR, Diverse Voices, will be highlighting seven Vancouver artists whose process-oriented work shows technical experimentation and innovation, curated by Rachel Rosenfield Lafo. Among the seven artists chosen are James Nizam and Brendan Tang, alongside Diyan Achjadi, Mark De Long, Jeremy Hof, Angela Teng, and Howie Tsui.

Lafo writes on Diverse Voices: “Each artist’s work demonstrates a unique resonance with materiality, whether experimenting with the physicality of paint or clay or conceptualizing about how to create light forms as three-dimensional objects in space.”

The exhibition runs from July 19- September 1, with a panel discussion and opening reception on July 19. Click here to visit the website.

Work by two of our represented artists, Brendan Tang and Clint Neufeld is currently on display as part of a large exhibition Fait Main/Hand Made at the Musee national des beaux-arts du Quebec, QC (June 14-September 3, 2018). More than 40 Canadian artists are included in this exhibition which acts as a sweeping overview of contemporary output in Canada.

“Handicrafts, know-how and folklore come to the fore in contemporary art in this exhibition that dismantles the principles of hierarchy in art. Fait main / Hand Made presents these practices by exploring not only popular art, raw art and Pop Surrealism but also technology.” – MNBAQ website

Birthe Piontek, “Holding,” 2015, from “Abendlied.”

Congratulations to Birthe Piontek, who has received the 2018 Burtynsky Grant of $5,000 for her book project “Abendlied.”

The jury—Edward Burtynsky, Taia Kwinter (Associate Managing Editor, Aperture), Maxine Proctor (Managing Editor, BlackFlash; director and co-founder, Toronto Art Book Fair) and Marcus Schubert (Director of Media, Publications & Exhibits, Burtynsky Studios)—considered many innovative and compelling book projects from across Canada.

“Birthe Piontek’s ‘Abendlied’ examines how individual relationships in a family are shaped by the processes of growing up, aging, and eventually letting go. Piontek’s well-resolved book project sequences images of her family members interacting with textiles, household objects, and each other to weave a cohesive yet curious narrative about identity and belonging.” – The Jury
