See You @ The Two Rivers Gallery Date: Thursday, October 19, 2017

Time: 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Class Info: This week we are meeting at the Two Rivers Gallery to see two exciting openings.
Below find the information from the Two Rivers web site. 

Z'otz* Collective. Dual Miracle (Dunlop Art Gallery, Regina, SK), 2013. Ceramic sculpture.

Transitory Tributes Z'otz* Collective Z'otz* Collective is comprised of three artists with Latin American roots, based in Toronto:
Erik Jerezano, Ilyana Martinez and Nahum Flores.
The collective will travel to Two Rivers Gallery to create a site-specific drawing along one wall of our exhibition space.
Using the concept of niche, riffling on the idea of small shrines in the Catholic faith, and connecting with nesting in French (Nicher: to nest),
small boxes will be used throughout the installation as respositories of locally collected items.
Like points on the map, they will divide the installation into individual stories and suggest a greater connection to place and community.

Lou Lynn. Twisted Spoon, 2012. Glass and bronze. 

Envisioned/Revisioned Lou Lynn Lynn's glass and bronze sculpture draws from an interest in archaic and industrial tools and artifacts.
Forms might draw cues from utilitarian objects or have their genesis in some practical application,
but Lynn hijacks these elements. Altering size, configuration and other plastic elements,
she builds implements with a mastery that suggests precision and purposefulness at odds with the resulting work.
Fitting somewhere between the familiar and the impractically absurd,
they at times resemble the specialized tools of some long lost or secret trade or unfamiliar occupation.
Collectively they allude to activities outside our spheres of experience and, as convincing artefacts,
prompt us to test assumptions about our reality, past and present.
