The internationally renowned installation artist Dominique Pétrin will join our gallery team for a two-week installation and series of youth workshops. Her vibrant and subtly subversive work consists of immersive wallpaper installations cut from patterns she combines and remixes to form a colorful and out-of-this-world pop art experience.

Funded in part by a British Columbia Arts Council Youth Engagement grant. With additional funding by the British Columbia Arts Council, the Province of British Columbia, and the City of Campbell River. Special thanks to Denise Mitchell Interiors for sponsoring the exhibition.

Carly Butler speaks to us from the edge of the world. Her interdisciplinary work centers on nautical knowledge around navigation and survival, life by the sea, and reflects on the aches and gains that accompany the seafarer’s life.

HORIZON FELT //

Curator: Vicky Chainey Gagnon
July 12 – September 5, 2018
Main Gallery

 

 

The exhibition Horizon Felt presents the work of artists who draw on diverse media to focus on different ‘perspectives’ that challenge what is seen through the naked eye. What can a pink sky, a malleable sculpture made with a thousand small triangles, and a slow-motion video about trees tell us about how the landscape is achieved in art-making today?

WENDY GOES WEST //

 

Artist: Walter Scott (Montreal, QC)
Curator: Jenelle Pasiechnik
March 1 – April 25, 2018
Satellite Gallery

Opening Reception: Thursday, March 1 @ 6 pm

 

 

 

 

 

The Gallery has commissioned Walter Kaheró:ton Scott, a Kahnawake born artist who lives between Toronto and Montreal to create three new drawings. They come from Scott’s Wendy cartoon, a project he began drawing for fun after finishing art school in 2009. With two books in print and several exhibitions the Campbell River Art Gallery is proud to be a stop in the Wendy-verse. The stories follow Wendy, an art school party girl, and her friends as they try to ‘make it’ in the art world. Scott’s sarcastic portrayals and distinct style are a sideways world you don’t want to miss.

With funding by the British Columbia Arts Council, the Province of British Columbia, and the City of Campbell River.
