Get There From Here
Nicole Bauberger


September 22, 2016 - November 20, 2016

Nicole Bauberger, 2014, 18 km before Emerald Park, oil on panel.

The road plays a central role in the way we experience the landscape, especially as Canadians. It’s our commons: a common ground of culture, experience and use. Get There from Here is an exhibition of 221 one-foot-square oil paintings depicting the road and the landscape it travels through. Each painting was created on site at the roadside, depicting the road and the landscape every 50 kilometers from East to West to North.

Inside the Outside
Deborah Morriss


September 22, 2016 - November 20, 2016

Deborah Morriss, Untitled, 2009, papier maché.

In this body of work Deborah Morriss has moved away from her training as a ceramist to explore the flexibility of working in papier maché. Morris’ biomorphic vessels are inspired by natural forms: plants, insects, marine life. These elemental objects evoke fossilized shells, insect husks, seed pods, as the artist has stated “interior spaces where perhaps something had lived and emerged from, or which had once housed internal organs… my aim is for each piece to resonate with its own personality, to convey a sense of having participated in a world independent of human interference.”
