Upcoming Exhibition: this is not an ending

Shannon Taylor-Jones
this is not an ending
Exhibition runs April 8-28, 2019
Closing Reception: April 26, 7-9pm

This is something softer, and something about loss. This is absence as it is present. This is vapour; transient, slippery. Unstable. This is a rupture; abrupt, raw. Stinging.
This was never peace. This existence, however absurd, is important.
This is process. Visceral knowledge demanding space and time and energy. Invitation and permission. A small space with expanding walls.
This is not an ending.

‘this is not an ending’ is the first solo exhibition of emerging artist Shannon Taylor-Jones. Originally from Toronto, she received a BFA from OCAD University in 2016 and currently resides in London, Ontario. Primarily a painter, her work focuses on abstraction and explores ideas of intuition, process, and materiality.

Call for Submissions: Out of the Blue

“When you see the color blue, what do you feel? Would you describe it as something different than what you feel when you hear the word blue, or read the word blue on a page? Is the information communicated by a hue different than the information communicated by its name? Whatever you feel, is it possible that feeling is universal? Or does the color blue mean different things to different people?” – Baecio, Phillip. “Three Masters of Color Blue in Contemporary Art.”

Good sport invites you to explore how effect, origin, and meaning contribute to your interpretation of the colour blue for the group exhibition Out of the Blue.

SUBMISSION DETAILS:
Work in any media that can be displayed on the gallery walls (e.g., illustrations, paintings, short silent films (5 minute max), ink, paper cut-outs) can be submitted. We have limited space on podiums for 3D work.
Up to three pieces per artist can be submitted.
Please include a short artist statement (150 words max) for each piece and include an image list with title, media, year, and dimensions.
Please submit images of your work as JPGs.
Deadline for submissions is April 15, 2019. If selected, the completed work must be dropped off between April 26-28. The exhibition will run from May 17-June 8, 2019.

To submit your work, and for any questions, please email us: illbeagoodsport@gmail.com
