GOOD TALKS: Zane Pate March 27, 6pm Good Sport, 256 Richmond St PWYC/suggested donation $5
Good Sport’s own Zane Pate will be in the building for our third Good Talks presentation. Zane currently works in screen printing, but it wasn’t always that way. Discovering his ideal career path wasn’t easy, but these days he has a clear vision. He has been creating work his whole life, and with an emphasis on line, repetition and composition, his pieces demand your attention. Join Zane as he discusses how an artwork’s style, medium, and message can all work together.
Good Talks is a monthly series of artist talks where emerging artists with connections to London discuss their careers. We would like to acknowledge funding support from the Ontario Arts Council, an agency of the Government of Ontario.
You Are A Weed Get Out Of My Garden Jill Emeny March 13-21, 2020 Opening Reception March 13, 6-9pm
You Are A Weed Get Out Of My Garden is a solo exhibition by London-based artist Jill Emeny. Using different mediums such as concrete, found objects and textiles to express the weight of societal expectations.
Good Sport is seeking submissions of artworks that consider plants and our relationships with them for a group exhibition. The intersection of plants and visual culture is multifaceted and embodies many themes and histories; how do plants exist as and in culture, metaphor, symbolism, resource, narrative? How are plants seen; as background information, as spectacle? As resilient, as fragile? Where do plants exist within self care and collective care, within activism and escapism? What power do plants hold? What histories do they tell? Are plants sentient; what or how do plants feel? How are plants interwoven with other life forms? With empathy?
These are just some prompts to get you started – any work exploring plants is welcome for consideration.
Up to two pieces per artist, in any media, may be submitted. Please include a short artist statement (150 words max) that addresses your work in the context of the call for submissions. Please submit images as JPGs and include an image list with title, media, year, dimensions, and price (if for sale). Please include your website and/or Instagram links. There is no fee to submit or participate, and Good Sport does not take a commission on any sold work.
Deadline for submissions is April 2new deadline April 19, 2020, at 11:59pm. Artists will be notified by May 10. The exhibition will run in spring/summer 2020 (dates TBA).
