Douglas Bryan K – Venial Spaces

Venial, according to Christian Theology, denotes a transgression that is not regarded as depriving the soul of divine grace, or forgiveness. Venial Spaces is a collection of paintings from a period of the artist’s life where the idea of divine forgiveness was difficult to compress and accept; a mere concept rather than a part of reality—an outer space rather than an inner one. Part of this questioning wound up bleeding into the works on display at QEPCCC.

Oakville Museum Display, QEPCCC
What’s Your Type: Typewriters and Textiles
This exhibit pairs typewriters and sewing machines produced between 1875 and 1975. They form part of the Oakville Museum’s permanent collection and were donated to the Museum, in the vast majority, by women and both devices have been predominantly associated with women throughout history. The pairing of the instruments provokes questions about the status of work tools used by women and how the devices may help tell the stories of the women who owned and used them. Interesting facts emerge about the technological advances, societal roles and design history of the tools as material objects.

Display area and Corridor gallery hours are open daily according to the open hours of the town facility.

The Town of Oakville celebrates and fosters creativity through exhibitions at town facilities. The exhibition program showcases creative work reflecting the wide range of local artists, including work by individuals, art organizations, instructors, and students.

The Exhibitions Committee reviews proposals for exhibitions twice a year. Application due dates are February 1 and September 1.
