Suburbia

January 13 @ 2:00 pm

Free

Curated by Sheila McMath

“Our domestic experience is defined by the details – a carefully chosen wallpaper pattern, a table set for an evening meal, a small vegetable garden in the backyard, a balcony with an amazing view, a tree-fort that is perpetually ‘under-construction’. The artists in this exhibition explore where we live and how we define a home.

“With a cautious nostalgia, artist Pattie Chalmers borrows imagery from the mid 20th century to create ceramic tableaus that are simultaneously familiar and unsettling. Julia Hepburn creates small dream-like dioramas made of polymer clay and mixed media. Her works are distinctive for their strong psychological quality and elusive narratives. Remembering and re-creating the ‘magical’ spaces of childhood, like blanket and tree forts, Jennie Suddick opens up the definition of home to include communal, ‘do-it-yourself’ spaces whose distinction and power is in their impermanence.”

Please join us for the Opening Reception at 2pm on Sunday, January 13. The artists will be in attendance. This event is free and all are welcome.

This exhibition has been made possible in part by a contribution from Kitchener Waterloo Community Foundation and The Musagetes Fund.
