APRIL 2014

THE WILDS:
Printmaking by Meagan Hainstock and Stephen Petersen
Opening March 30 and continues to April 30, 2014
Artist reception, Sunday, March 30, from 1 to 4 PM

ABOUT THE SHOW

A husband-and-wife printmaking duo explores nature through the lens of their professional training as Biologists.

Stephen’s woodcuts and lithographs uncover wild places at different scales. His work illustrates how the environment and its inhabitants blend seamlessly to create startling and attractive patterns. Whether on land or at sea, the animals he interprets dwell in vast Canadian landscapes where they make a lasting impression if you are lucky enough to see them.

The insects of Meagan’s woodcuts and mixed media pieces are more common than Stephen’s subjects, but are not viewed quite as favourably by people. By magnifying winged insects such as flies, hornets and mosquitoes, Meagan invites the viewer to look beyond labels (annoying, dangerous, disease-ridden) to appreciate their physical features as striking, sometimes comical, even exquisite.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Stephen and Meagan have been studying wildlife throughout their careers, working coast to coast to coast within Canada. A molecular ecologist, Stephen currently studies Arctic marine species such as polar bears, ringed seals and narwhal. Meagan has been more of a generalist in the field of ecology, studying everything from plants, to insects, to birds, to mammals. The two collaborate on several projects, including an ongoing killer whale I.D. catalogue and a recent excursion to study ringed seals in Churchill, Manitoba. They both learned the art of printmaking from Meagan’s father, Bob Hainstock.

SEPTEMBER 2014

RETURN OF THE G.A.W.M.Y.S. – JOURNEYS OF DIVERSITY
From August 29 to October 1
Reception: Sunday, September 7, 1 to 4 p.m.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

The GAWMYS are a group of seven professionally trained artists, kindred spirits and current or former art educators. Although some of the members have retired from teaching and have taken on new adventures, the group continues to keep in touch and intermittently exhibits together. Their friendship and collaboration has spanned several decades.

The group includes Gloria De Neve, Kathleen Hamann-Buckoski , Judith Panson, Francisco (Pancho) Puelles, Tom Roberts, Gina Roth and Erika Uustalu-Nicholson.

Each member has their own unique style, medium and artistic voice. The group’s name, G.A.W.M.Y.S. is a playful but earnest response to the notion that artists should not attempt to answer to home décor or decorating schemes…..hence, Good Art Won’t Match your Sofa!

The variety and subject matter of this exhibit is very diverse and includes unique sculpture, paintings, photography, drawings, functional ceramic pottery, prints, quilted and multi-media fabric art.
