"25 Years, 25 Artists"
July 31 - August 16, 2015
A special curated exhibition, 25 YEARS, 25 ARTISTS, features the works of 25 local artists participating in a collaborative project to commemorate the legacy of excellence in the arts and deep community connections the festival has nurtured in its 25 years.
The concept of the exhibition is inspired by the surrealist game "exquisite corpse" or "cadavre exquis" where a collection of images (or words) are collectively assembled in sequence. For 25 YEARS, 25 ARTISTS, each artist created their work, with the theme, medium and style of their choice, on a 24x24” canvas or wood panel. Each artist created their composition with guided marks, connecting their work to the artists’ work on either side. The resulting collaborative work wraps around the inside of the gallery.
Featuring work by:
Jane Adams, Carole Arnston, Heather Aston, Janis Blyth, Bobbie Burgers, Barrie Chadwick, Lil Chrzan, Cori Creed, Dene Croft, Rod Gildersleeve, Jani Guzi, Kiff Holland, Maria Josenhans, Peter Kiss, Colin Righton, Brian Romer, Barry Shelton, Monica Shelton, Arnold Shives, Stuart Slind, Sylvia Tait, Tracy Tarling, Alfonso Tejada, Michael Tickner & XwaLackTun
Opening Reception: Friday, July 31, 6 - 7 p.m.
