This Place In Time, Queen West Art Crawl

Not that there isn’t going to be enough stuff going on in Peterborough this weekend, if you happen to be visiting our metropolitan neighbor Toronto, there is some great stuff going on there too.

“This Place In Time”

Our friends Show and Tell gallery will be hosting a group show featuring several of the artists whose work we’ve shared on this blog. The show will be up from September 16 – October 8, 2011. Opening Reception: Friday September 16, 7 – 11pm

Participating artists include:

Ben Oakley, Cleon Peterson, Henry Gunderson, Jenn Sciarrino, Jimmy Limit, Marissa Textor, Mirak Jamal, Ryan Travis Christian, Ryan Wallace, Sara Swynar, Tibi Tibi Neuspiel.

“Whether physical, social, cultural, or philosophical, the concept of “space” has obsessed humankind for centuries. Within the field of visual art, an interest in space has been a prominent thread in the generation of creators emergent from the 1970s through to the 1980s. The artists assembled in This Place in Time have each invested in the boundless, definition-evading idea of “space”. Not only does the content of these works focus on unpicking the attendant theme, but also the variety of media on view allow audience members to question how subjectivity plays out in the space defined by the plane of the page, the surface of a sculpture, and the interstitial areas between.”

“Queen West Art Crawl”

The Queen West Art Crawl is a weekend-long festival of creativity and community. Celebrating and cultivating the unique character, diversity and ethos of Queen West – a natural habitat for individual artists, arts organizations, artist run centres and businesses that promote art and culture.

This year our friends at 36 Chambers Studios have partnered with the event and will be part of the art crawl. Check them out at 1266 Queen St W (Side Entrance off Noble St.)
