‘Ley Lines’ with Reilly Knowles, Sarah Desmarais, and Andrew Fraser
June 14-July 6, 2019
Opening Reception June 14, 7-9pm
Gallery hours Saturdays 12-4pm
Ley Lines will draw a thread through three artists’ investigations into mythology, storytelling, spirituality, the supernatural, and alterity. Magic, myth and the occult are increasingly trendy topics among the younger generation, but they also have long, rich and zig-zagging histories which serve as fertile soils for artistic, personal, and political investigations. Each artist draws from ancient traditions of the unusual to comment on contemporary concerns and to completely consume fantasy tropes and re-deliver them as transformed, sincere commentaries on personal and collective experiences.
The exhibition aims to playfully foster curiosity in the viewer, to create a sense of mystery, and prompt viewers to apply their own narratives and experiences to the work.
