Lonsdale Gallery

Small Work, Big Impact

December 1 - 21, 2018

This holiday season consider giving the gift of an original artwork.

Lonsdale Gallery presents an exhibition of small works by six exciting artists: Joan Kaufman, Laura Demers, Pedie Wolfond, Jim Reid, Peggy Taylor-Reid and Paul Shortt. Showcasing photography, painting, mixed media, and printmaking the exhibition highlights an exciting array of smaller artworks that have big impact.

Jim Reid’s gestural watercolour sketches capture the fleeting colours of the northern landscape. Energetic and expressive, these plein air sketches reveal the ever-changing cycles of the natural world. Laura Demers’s mixed media paintings layer abstracted fragments to create surreal landscapes. Her constructed topographies transport the viewer to an imagined space.

Joan Kaufman, Unravelling Still Study 1-6, 2012
Chromogenic color prints, 12 x 13.5~17 inches

Joan Kaufman’s ethereal images blur the boundaries between illusion and reality. In her Unravelling Still series, the artist captures dancers in motion, with lines of light tracing their gestures. In another multi-panel photographic installation Cloud Cover 1.5 reveals the artist reveals an otherworldly landscape that is artificial yet familiar. Peggy Taylor Reid’s intimate hybrid process photographs transport the viewer into a contemplative dream-like space. Airy figures are depicted communing in nature under the night sky.

Pedie Wolfond, Energy Blocks I, 2018
chromogenic color prints on dibond, 36 x 36 inches (60 x 60 inches en-pointe)

Pedie Wolfond has developed a sophisticated visual vocabulary for conveying light, colour and movement. Wolfond’s new expressive abstract compositions are presented as a series of artist proofs that radiate with energy.

Also on view, Paul Shortt’s hand screen-printed Signs for Galleries take a humorous look at everyday signage through critical plays with language, authority and rules. With irony and acute self-awareness, these text-based works reflect upon and question the politics that govern our experiences of gallery spaces.

Contact us for a personalized selection of small artworks to complement any space and budget.
