HAPPENING NOW - 'Trashed - Art as Diversion' - June 03-24
A group exhibition working as both an informative and visually appealing look at the trash cycle of Nova Scotia, and how collage and assemblage artists are diverting items headed to the landfill into their art.
This show will include a collaborative installation called 'Put a Lid on it', in which artists will create collage or assemblage contained within a jar lid exploring what it means to put a stop to something. Folks can limit their ideas to the waste cycle or tackle a broader meaning to take in issues such as hatred, war or commercialism.
'Put a Lid on It' artists include:
Gavin Snow, Alexandra Merkx-Jacques, Jennifer Rae Forsyth, Jen Worden, Flavia Mauricio, Nina Silver, Rachel Zaenab Buhler, Peter Crouse, Daniel Guy, Violaine Ducharme, Josee Lachapelle, Donica Larade, MadCollage, Jerome Bertrand, Zanahoy, Suzan Mandla, Lisa Goodyear, Rhonda Barrett and Samantha Agar
Artworks by the gallery artists will also be on display with work from Gavin Snow, Rhonda Barrett, Peter Crouse and Kevin MacLean highlighted within the show.
UPCOMING - 'Eastern Son', Korey Steckle, July 01-July15
This is Korey's first solo exhibit on the East Coast of Canada. Korey feels it is very fitting that it should be shown at Canada's first collage and assemblage gallery.
'I have taken the time in my studio located in Glace Bay to meditate, reflect and then execute and express in the medium of collage regarding what it means to be a Father and artist in this so called post truth era,' Steckle says.
PAST - 'From Life', Gavin Snow, April 27-May07

Road signs, shop signs and curbside treasures are included in this collection of works created 'From Life'.
