2017 THESIS AWARD SHOW

The Thesis Award Show is a collaboration between ARTiculations, Graven Feather Studio and Akin Collective in support of graduating post secondary students. In spring 2017 a call was sent out across the Province for applications in search of students demonstrating a coherent body of work unique in both concept and execution. Overwhelmed by the response, we extend a huge thank you to all of the applicants and congratulate this year’s winners, Jill Smith and Kimberly Danielson for their achievements. In addition to solo exhibitions, Smith and Danielson each received a one week print residency with Graven Feather, and a studio credit with Akin Collective as part of the award.

Accumulations - June 3rd-13th
Reception Wednesday, June 7th, 6-8pm

Jill Smith’s recent body of work, Accumulations, explores the construction and decoration of environments, and how we engage with spaces both real or otherwise- often nonsensical, curious places. Smith not only explores the relationship between various objects in a scene, often rooted in domesticity or referencing still lives, but what it also means to provide a window into another setting through a practice involving sculpture, screen printing and more. Bodily, charming, playful and whimsical the artist takes us to another place- one that is strange yet somehow personal and familiar, odd yet somehow comforting.


Painted Carvings - June 17th-27th
Reception Wednesday, June 21st 6-8pm

In Kimberly Danielson’s body of work, Painted Carvings, we find a shared interest in allusion and varying levels of reality (the worlds of others and our own internal realms)- but explored through nods to the artist’s nordic heritage and traditions through an intuitive, sensitive lens and contemporary sensibility. Danielson’s works are as much a conversation between painting, sculpture and materiality as they are about personal history, narratives and answers through introspection. Otherworldly and delicate, we again find ourselves presented with a vantage point that does not feel totally foreign but is not altogether comfortable either.
