FutureTense is ARTSPACE’s second biennial Juried Member’s Exhibition. In celebration of the debut of our Media Lab, we are thrilled to present an exhibition of work from the membership. The exhibition represents a diversity of work utilizing various technologies from the obsolete to the cutting edge, from the functional to the dysfunctional. With approaches ranging from audio installation to digital animation, drawing, painting, video, and assemblage, the exhibition presents a broad portrayal of contemporary art practice.
Each of the works included in FutureTense explores an aspect of the expressive potential inherent within technology; whether that expressive potential is used to spark dialogue about technology’s ever-expanding role in our culture or to explore the personal and get to the heart of the human condition. Regardless of whether the technology is old or new; they are all, in their own way commenting on the narrative, organic, and fragmented qualities of our now ubiquitous technology-laden reality.
Contributing Artists; Lyall Brownlee, Benjamin Hackman, Beth McCubbin, Patrick Moore, Steppenwill, Michael Poulton
One thing I can’t stand is an artist who takes them-self too seriously, that’s why I find it relieving when I come across someone who injects a little humour in to their work. It is a sensitive line though, too much and you can become camp or just plain ridiculous. Personally I think Canadian artist Ben Skinner has got it just right.
It’s that time of year again for Artsweek here in the Electric City. Check out the newly revamped Artsweek website, where you’ll find more information about the week’s projects.
Keep your eyes peeled for Gallery In The Truck, a mobile gallery in the back of a U-haul making its way around town!
Wrap up the week Friday with the opening reception for Artspace’s member show, Future Tense, also doubling as the Artsweek closing party.
These guys will be back at the Red Dog on October 19th, check them out.

There is a reason for the major lack of posts on the Electric City Art Lodge over the last couple of weeks, I’ve been on vacation. We’ll I’m back now and trying to get caught up. Usually, any time off from the 9 to 5 I get I tend to spend working in the studio but this year we decided to get away from it all and rented a small cottage on the coast of Nova Scotia. I got to catch up on some reading, doodled, did some sightseeing, drank beer and ate lobster. Great times.

While in Lunenburg, a really interesting little port town about 90 minutes south of Halifax, we came across a great little shop, Dots and Loops. Dots and Loops is full of handmade goods and artists prints. I was very excited to pick up a few prints from a Canadian artist who currently resides in Lunenburg, Sarah Burwash, who’s work I really felt captured the spirit of the area. For a special check it out I’ve posted some of Sarah’s work below.

Tomorrow is the much anticipated all day street party, Hootenanny on Hunter. Going to be a great day of live music and a few drinks I’m sure. Hopefully the weather turns out half decent. Check out all the local artists profiles over on
