An Assembly of Shapes

24 June – 1 September 2018
Oakville Galleries in Gairloch Gardens and at Centennial Square

Exploring painting as a methodology, An Assembly of Shapes brings together the work of 19 Canadian artists working both locally and internationally. Moving between figuration and abstraction, the works in this exhibition emerge from an underlying curiosity about both form and content, reflecting the stakes of creating and circulating images in our current moment. Through thoughtful consideration of subjects such as perception, politics, technology, language, intuition, and humour, the artists in this exhibition position painting as a site of inquiry—a space of porousness, a way of thinking, a mode of engaging with a world in flux.

CITY AND COLOUR: A MOBILE INK FACTORY WORKSHOP

Sunday 19 August 2018, 2:00 pm–4:00 pm
The Studio at Oakville Galleries in Gairloch Gardens
Ages 18+

In this afternoon workshop, participants will learn how to make colour from the world around them, transforming locally found natural materials into inks with Jason Logan and the Toronto Ink Company. Following an introduction to the basics of ink-making, we will forage in Gairloch Gardens, sourcing colour from leaves, roots, berries, branches, and other finds. Back in the studio, participants will turn these materials into inks of their own making, testing them out on a variety of papers. Each participant will leave the workshop with a bottle of their handmade ink.
