Opening Reception: Friday September 19, 7:00 pm to 9:30 pm

The Wanderer of Yawnder (Revisited) will feature Jay Dart's original drawings from his limited edition book Wanderer of Yawnder. His whimsical and imaginative drawings capture a place on the frontiers of the wilderness where wanderers encounter Foredad clouds, Magical Mystery Beards and Geists. Narrated by Jiggs (Dart's alter ego), the story allegorically captures the mystical nature of inspiration, the search for innovative creation, and the dissemination of ideas. Dart is an Ontario-based drawist and illustrator.

The artist would like to acknowledge funding support from the Ontario Arts Council, an agency of the Government of Ontario.

SHUVINAI ASHOONA: WOVEN THOUGHTS
September 20 - October 11, 2014

Meet the Artist: Thursday, October 2, 5:00 - 7:00 pm

Feheley Fine Arts is delighted to present Woven Thoughts, an exhibition of recent works by Cape Dorset artist, Shuvinai Ashoona, curated by Nancy Campbell. Through continuous experimentation with subject matter, Ashoona's inventive drawings are consistently at the forefront of contemporary Inuit art. Her recent drawings are a combination of reality and the disturbingly imaginative. Her intricate compositions often involve a highly developed colour spectrum and her own abstract outlook of northern life. Shuvinai Ashoona's unfailing devotion to developing her art and individual style have made her one of the most prominent contemporary Inuit artists.

Shuvinai Ashoona's work continues to gain momentum and exposure; her artwork has been exhibited alongside the work of Annie Pootoogook, Sobey Art Award winner, and Shary Boyle, who represented Canada at the Venice Biennale in 2013. Ashoona has been featured in curated exhibitions including SITElines: New Perspectives on Art of the Americas, Sakahàn at the National Gallery of Canada, the 18th Sydney Biennale, Oh Canada at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, and Inuit Modern: The Samuel and Esther Sarick Collection at the Art Gallery of Ontario. Her work can be found in the permanent collections of the National Gallery of Canada, the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Winnipeg Art Gallery, and the TD Bank Financial Group.

MEMORIES OF THE FUTURE
Sara Angelucci, Robert Hengeveld, Eleanor King and Matt Macintosh

GIBSON HOUSE MUSEUM
September 20 – November 9, 2014

OPENING RECEPTION
September 21, 2014 – 2 - 5pm

WALK THROUGH WITH THE ARTISTS
September 21, 2014 – 1pm


image


Memories of the Future is an annual project that invites contemporary artists to respond to the history and development of house museums across Toronto. For the inaugural exhibition at Gibson House Museum artists Sara Angelucci, Robert Hengeveld, Eleanor King and Matt Macintosh employ a range of approaches and media that explore the layered narratives of the house, museum and landscape. Uncovering hidden stories and forgotten histories, the exhibition explores timely issues related to museums and authenticity, land claims, sustainability and urban development.

Offering a kind of cultural excavation, this ongoing curatorial project digs deeper into the archive and provides alternate readings of historic narratives. Using the visual language of the present and speculating on possibilities for the future, memories of the distant past are newly exposed, interpreted and remembered.

Curated by Noa Bronstein and Katherine Dennis.


About the Artists:

Sara Angelucci is a Toronto-based visual artist working in photography, video and audio, and is an Adjunct Professor in the School of Image Arts, Ryerson University. Angelucci’s work explores vernacular photography and film analyzing the original context in which these images were made. Her work draws from the history of photography, as well as natural and social histories, transforming found images and repositioning them within the broader cultural context from which they emerge.

Robert Hengeveld is an artist whose work explores the boundaries between reality and fiction, and where we find ourselves within that relationship. He completed his MFA at the University of Victoria in 2005 and studied at the Ontario College of Art & Design. He is currently the Artist-in-Residence at the University of Guelph in the School of Environmental Science. His work has been exhibited across Canada and internationally. Past and upcoming exhibitions include The Power Plant (Toronto), Hallwalls Contemporary (Buffalo), MacDonald Stewart (Guelph), EyeLevel Gallery (Halifax), Mercer Union (Toronto), and Mulherin Pollard (NYC).

Eleanor King exhibits widely, most notably at the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art, Southern Alberta Art Gallery, Nuit Blanche Toronto, Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Confederation Centre Art Gallery, and Galleri F15 (Norway). She received a BFA from NSCAD University in 2001 and has participated in residencies in the US and Canada, most recently at Yaddo, The MacDowell Colony, and The Banff Centre. She has received multiple creation grants from the Canada Council for the Arts and Arts Nova Scotia, and was short-listed for the Sobey Art Award in 2012. She plays drums and writes songs in the rock band Wet Denim. Eleanor is represented by Diaz Contemporary, Toronto.

Matt Macintosh is an interdisciplinary artist based in Ramara, Ontario. His practice is indebted mainly to painting and conceptual art traditions and is centred in both religious and secular notions of emancipation. His work explores, among other things, part–whole relationships, protocols for producing disciplinary knowledge, and systematic approaches to abstraction. He is a graduate of the Master of Visual Studies program at the University of Toronto and has exhibited in Canada and the U.S. He is currently the Curator at the Orillia Museum of Art & History.


About the Gibson House Museum:

Built in 1851, Gibson House was the home of Scottish immigrant David Gibson and his family. Gibson was a land surveyor who helped map early Toronto. Wanted by the government for participating in the Upper Canada Rebellion of 1837, Gibson was forced to flee to the United States where he and his family remained for 11 years. On their return to York County, the Gibsons built the Georgian house that is now the museum and once again became active members of their rural community. Gibson House Museum is one of 10 historic museums operated by the City of Toronto.

InterAccess presents:

Mean Time to Upgrade
September 19–November 22, 2014
Opening Reception September 19, 2014, 7-9PM

image


Featuring works by: Phil Baljeu, Steve Daniels, Hannah Epstein, Dragan Espenschied, Nancy Paterson, Bill Perry

Artworks in a tenuous stage in their lives are presented in a group exhibition at InterAccess. The works were chosen through a call for works in "existential crisis" for which a decision to upgrade may fundamentally change the work’s meaning or threaten its artistic integrity. Focusing on the problems and paradoxes found in upgrading and preserving new media artworks, the exhibition pauses on the moment before a perceived inevitable upgrade and asks what we might find in the meantime. The project challenges the notion of technological determinism from the perspective of a non-collecting institution.

Join us in the gallery for the opening reception on September 19 at 7PM.

InterAccess is located at 9 Ossington Ave. Toronto


Public Lecture with Rebecca Uchill
October 9, 2014 6:30PM
$10 tickets available here
Complimentary refreshments provided

Within the context of our Fall exhibition, visiting curator Rebecca Uchill will present a lecture on the theme of intentionality as it pertains to preservation practices. Her talk follows historically shifting construction of new media and preservation approaches from photography and collective art practice to “interactive” audiences and beyond.

Rebecca Uchill is an independent curator and PhD candidate at MIT, in the Department of Architecture’s History, Theory and Criticism of Art and Architecture discipline group. Her work focuses on the institutional conditions for art production, display, and dissemination. Uchill’s writing has been published in ASPECT: The Chronicle of New Media Art, Future Anterior, and Museum and Curatorial Studies Review. She is currently a Fellow at the Berlin Program for Advanced German and European Studies.

The Artscape Award Presents:
Julie Gladstone: Abstract Landscape Paintings
Select Works 2012-2014

​Black Ice 36" x36" oil + spray paint on panel


ARTSCAPE YOUNGPLACE
3rd Floor Hallway Gallery
180 Shaw St. Toronto

September 18th - September 28th, 2014
Gallery Hours: 8am-9pm

​
Julie Gladstone received the Artscape Award this summer at the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition and was granted a solo exhibition at the Artscape Youngplace Hallway Gallery. This exhibition includes over 30 select paintings spanning from 2012 -2014.

Julie's work develops new strategies for portraying landscape with a focus on changes in weather patterns and the intersection of nature and culture particularly in urban settings. She is interested in the meetings between consumer culture and the natural world and works within a discourse in the history of painting about Man vs. Nature. The unique aesthetic of her work is achieved by creating intersections between different periods of painting including Romantic Landscape Painting, Pop Art, Art Nouveau and Modern abstraction, while working with contemporary subject matter.

Her most recent work examines shorelines, urban “utopias” and “sacred” sites hidden within the urban sprawl of southern Ontario. These are landscapes that explore the geometry of both natural and man made objects against landscapes that tow the line between natural and altered.

Her work from the 2013 series “The Sky is Falling” examines the experience of flooding against the archetype of “The Great Flood”. The work considers the dangers of mass hysteria and our contemporary culture’s fascination with apocalyptic fantasy and simultaneous yearning for familiarity and comfort. This series evolved with the progression of the seasons during the winter of 2014 during which we experienced the Polar Vortex and many power outages and ice storms. With these works, the images of the snow flake and raindrop are rendered as mass produced symbols in a range of fluorescent and factory produced hues against dramatic skies.

Her work from the 2012 series “Metaphysical Cartography”, a collection of aerial view abstract landscapes, envisions the urban construction site as a potent ground of alchemical transformation within the urban environment. Patterns and symbols from construction pylons and industrial spray paint are portrayed as contemporary hieroglyphics and used as symbols suggesting the presence of a buried trauma or perhaps a hidden possibility waiting to be unearthed from below the surface of the sidewalk.


About the Artist:

Julie Gladstone is a Toronto based visual artist and abstract landscape painter. Julie received a BFA in painting and drawing from Concordia University in Montreal where she was the recipient of the Stevenson Scholarship for excellence in painting. In 2014, Julie received a Toronto Arts Council Emerging Visual Arts Grant and was the winner of the Artscape Award for best of show at the 2014 Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition. Her work has been exhibited in Juried Exhibitions at the FSU Museum of Fine Arts in Tallahassee, Florida; The Living Arts Centre in Mississauga, and Pearson International Airport. Julie has had two solo exhibitions with Walnut Contemporary in Toronto, (2012 and 2013). and work has also been exhibited at the Canadian Department of Heritage, Toronto, and in group exhibitions at the Frederic Varley Horseman Gallery in Markham, the Bata Shoe Museum in Toronto, The Haida Museum in British Colombia. Her work belongs in private collections across the country.

Your Art, Our Business

ArtBarrage is pleased to introduce Your Art, Our Business, a consulting service for artists, collectors, businesses and galleries that offers a range of services including art consulting, grant writing, professional artwork and exhibition documentation, career advice on who to approach with your work and ways of presenting yourself, press release and artist statement support, and art installation.

Services Offered:

Art Consulting
We offer comprehensive and affordable art consulting services. YAOB will source art work for residential and corporate clients through contemporary artists and galleries on time and on budget to meet the multitude of diverse presentation needs.

Grant Writing
Based on your rough ideas and/or discussions during studio visits, we will help formulate your concepts so that they are conveyed in a direct, concise manner, which describes the essence of the work. We will provide an experienced outside perspective that will take into account your artist statement, budget, quality of images, order of images and support material in preparation for local, provincial, federal or international artist grants.

Career Advice
Through our comprehensive experience in the commercial and public gallery system, our knowledge is your gain. Whether you are an emerging artist introducing yourself to the local community or a mid-career/senior artist wanting to promote and sell your work to art collectors and curators, we will provide ideas and guidelines to achieve the desired results.

Press and Promotion
A key element to marketing and promoting your work to the art community and beyond is approaching press and media that best fit the nature of the work and the target audience of each media outlet. Through art publications, magazines, independent media outlets, blogs and social media outreach, we will assist you to refine and contextualize your press release and ensure that your exhibition or art project receives the promotional outreach it deserves

Art Documentation
In today's digital world, high quality images of your artwork are essential in order to compete with the inundation of images we see on a daily basis. Most people will view your art in the form of a digital reproduction online, in a power point presentation, at a grant jury or published in print. We encourage artists to pay extra attention to the documentation of their work. With 20 years of experience we offer professional photo documentation of art exhibitions and individual artworks in all mediums. Artists can bring their work to the ArtBarrage office or we can come to the artist's studio or gallery to photograph on location. All documentation will be captured digitally in very high-resolution, but we also offer 4"x5" film reproductions upon requests.

Nadav Assor, Ira Eduardovna, Amnon Wolman, Nevet Yitzhak: PARDES

Feed : Akimbo exhibitions feed
Published on : 2014-09-18 01:00:00

PARDES
Nadav Assor, Ira Eduardovna, Amnon Wolman, Nevet Yitzhak

September 18 – November 30, 2014
Koffler Gallery
Artscape Youngplace, 180 Shaw Street
Guest Curator: Liora Belford

FALL OPENING RECEPTION: Thursday, September 18, 2014 | 6 – 9 PM | FREE

Derived from an old parable, the term PARDES, meaning ‘orchard’ in Hebrew, has come to symbolize the realm of Jewish mysticism. In the legend entitled Four Entered the Orchard, four great sages who enter the esoteric practice meet different fates: one dies, one loses his mind, and one forsakes the Jewish tenets. Only one enters in peace and leaves in peace.

Developed by Toronto-based curator Liora Belford, PARDES brings together four Israeli sound and multi-media artists to investigate notions of mysticism, heresy and the occult from secular perspectives, as they relate to contemporary society. With new and recent works, they examine the mythological aspirations of military technologies, gender ideologies within ritual practices, the collapse of conventional social models, and the impact of marginalized voices on mainstream cultural traditions.

Drawing a parallel to the machine-like Ophanim angels, Nadav Assor examines the obscure undercurrents of drone development: ambitions of unbridled motion, omnipresent vision and remote-controlling power. Amnon Wolman explores gender in Judaism with a sound-embedded prayer shawl, while his sculptural audio book transcends language, lifting it to a different form of expression. Ira Eduardovna’s audio/visual piece juxtaposes chorus-sung reflections on the Apocalypse to a TV sitcom-inspired family scene – a comment on society’s decline and crumbling ideologies. Nevet Yitzhak’s audio/video installation processes archival recordings from the Israel Broadcasting Authority Arabic Orchestra (1948-1993), creating a new composition based on marginalized traditions.

Through a variety of media and artistic approaches, PARDES explores the myth of concealment and mystery that shrouds the path to spirituality, questions our search for heroic figures, and examines the individual’s need to relate to a collective intellectual realm.

�

OF OTHER FACES
September 18 – October 25, 2014 | Opening Reception Thursday, September 18 from 7–9 pm

TYPOLOGY is pleased to present Of Other Faces, featuring sound art, video, and photography by Andrea Cohen and Wiska Radkiewicz (Paris, New York), Victoria Fu (Los Angeles), Marta Ryczko (Toronto), and Manuel Saiz (Berlin), five artists whose works employ strategies of mirroring and doubling to investigate the paradoxical nature of our dualistic world.

Of Other Faces is the first exhibition of work by international artists Victoria Fu and Manuel Saiz in Canada. An exhibition catalogue and the third in our series of affordable limited edition prints will accompany the show.

About the Artists/Artworks

Multidisciplinary artists Andrea Cohen and Wiska Radkiewicz are co-directors of the SoundSon Project, an experimental web-based approach to audio sharing and collaborative composition. Their sound work, A deux voix, moments, investigates themes of memory through a seamless evocation of timelessness born of an entirely virtual process of making.

Victoria Fu is an artist and educator whose works have been exhibited internationally, most recently at the 2014 Whitney Biennial. Her elegiac video, Self-Portrait in Sweden, harnesses film’s moving image to present us with a cinematic impossibility.

Marta Ryczko is a multidisciplinary artist and designer. Her paired photo series, Alien/Recognition, features transformed figures that elicit a potent mix of fascination and repulsion as archetypal expressions of humanity’s fear and desire for the Other.

Spanish artist, curator, and writer Manuel Saiz has exhibited internationally at venues including the Whitechapel Gallery and ICA in London. His two-channel video installation, Parallel Universes Meet at Infinity, interrogates fraught relationships between nature and contemporary humankind even as it offers viewers a chance at communion.

FREE upcoming events include

Lydia Panart: 'Huellas'

Feed : Akimbo exhibitions feed
Published on : 2014-09-18 01:00:00

“H U E L L A S”
By Lydia Panart

image


September 18 – October 01/2014

Opening Reception 18TH,  6PM – 9PM


Artist/Painter Lydia Panart is celebrating the completion of her newest body of work, titled “Huellas”. Lydia is a celebrated Artist whose works are housed throughout Latin America and Canada.

Each work focuses on revisiting those huellas from another perspective, and how the passage of time has brought a new significance to them. Her approach references the elements of nature: air, water, earth, and fire, in addition to architectural elements, very much embodied in the Artist’s soul and representing permanence.

Some huellas seem immutable and unmovable; others give the illusion that they are in motion, gently pulled by gravity down the surface of the canvas. Layers of paint create the illusion of texture and depth, capture the symbolic aspect of the process and give to the paintings the appearance of being lit from within.

Lydia Panart has been exhibiting extensively since 1994. Her work has been shown in Latin America, The Netherlands, The UAE, and throughout Canada. This is her first Solo show with Arta Gallery.
