Jenine Marsh, Water Strider, 2017, pants air dry clay, acrylic varnish, ink, approximately 4’ diameter. Documentation: Nicole Kelly Westman.

Emphasizing practices that press, brush up against, graze, and touch, The Shape of the Middle is a response to the specific material parameters at the intersection of printmaking and photography. The exhibition takes its inspiration from Photographs of British Algae: Cyanotype Impressions (1843) by Anna Atkins, the groundbreaking botanist who was arguably the first person to publish a book illustrated with photographs.

Susan Cunningham, Token - Egyptian Bracelet, 2013, screenprint and acrylic paint on wood veneer, 24” x 24”.

Susan Cunningham: Tokens
George Gilmour Members’ Gallery

As an adult language teacher to newcomers to Canada, Susan Cunningham's role is to assist her students in acquiring proficiency in English, a skill that can be the key to successful and productive lives. Periodically, Cunningham’s students give her small gifts. In this body of work, Cunningham has sought to elevate these tokens to objects of totemic proportions, four or more times their original size. Grouped together in a grid, they take on a presence that honours the people who gifted them. MORE

Sally Ayre: Shift
Print Sales Gallery

Sally Ayre has been collecting plant specimens for many years, some from explorations in the city, and other specimens from the edge of waterways and time spent in the country. The specimens have been scanned and catalogued to form an image bank from which she draws on to create her work. In the work exhibited in Shift, Ayre is working with fall specimens containing seeds that will scatter to germinate new life cycles. MORE
