Eva Richardson • Surface
Vernissage: Thursday, December 1st at 6 pm
Exhibition: December 2 to 22, 2016
Artist’s Talk: Thursday, December 8 at 7 pm
In Eva Richardson’s paintings, semi-geometric abstract forms are suspended in fields of colour. Several paintings will be accompanied by some twenty small collages inspired by the materials and textures that surround the artist in everyday life: graffiti covered walls, rusted metal surfaces, old pieces of fabric and pre-used packaging materials.
Joëlle Morosoli • Chaos pénétrable
Vernissage: Thursday, January 5th at 6 pm
Exhibition: January 6 to 28, 2017
Joëlle Morosoli will fill the gallery with large mechanical installations that create a space that is both intractable and menacing. Playing upon the theme of prisoners and jailers, the artist creates an allegory of the secret world of our weaknesses and taboos. Visitors will be invited to enter into this space and experience the feelings it provokes.

Vernissage: Thursday, March 2 at 6 pm
Exhibition: March 3 to 25, 2017
Artist’s Talk: Thursday, March 9 at 7 pm
Several light, insubstantial sculptures will be suspended from the ceiling and will appear to float within the space of the gallery, pivoting in reaction to the movements of the visitors. The surface of each shape will be covered by a network of fine lines made up of threads which form a fragile cage, suggesting transitory or imaginary dwellings and oneiric spaces. The sculptures will be accompanied by drawings of the same forms.

In the Eastern Township of Stanstead, is an undulating gravel road, “Browns Hill”. Moving through endlessly rolling valleys, receding to a distant range of mountains and sky, Brown’s Hill is the site of inspiration for this exhibition. Five artists are invited to interpret this evocative ‘paysage’: Sara Colby, Renée Duval, Holly King, Peter Krausz and Song Nan Zhang. The exhibition travels to the Colby Curtis Museum, July 2016. Catalogue available.
