Reception: THE RAINBOW VOLCANO EXPLOSION
Exhibition: July 31, 2014 to August 30, 2014
Reception: Thursday, August 7th, 2014 7-9 pm
The Rainbow Volcano Explosion is a multi-disciplinary exhibit featuring work by twelve artists: Dana Ayotte, Alex Maeve Campbell, Erin Candela, Scott Easson, Hannah Epstein, Julie Gladstone, Catherine Hunt, Karen Loomer, Ursula McDonnell, Guy Parrotta, Holly Wheatcroft and Leanne Unrue. Curated by artist and Co-director of Graven Feather Erin Candela, the exhibit brings together disparate artistic practices around the collective use of colour and energy.
From luminously glowing paintings by Julie Gladstone and Ursula McDonnell to a textured hooked-rug canvas by Hannah Epstein a wide range of material and style is evident. "While coming from very different perspectives, each of these artists demonstrate an energetic use of colour, material or gesture in their work. " says Candela.
Against the white of the gallery walls the artworks pop and explode, immersing visitors in a riot of swirling shades and strokes. As the title suggests fun and play are also important themes in the collection; a reminder perhaps not to take the art world too seriously. Please join us August 7th from 7- 9pm. Everyone is welcome.
