John Kissick: The Boom Bits
August 3-October 14, 2018

John Kissick: The Boom Bits covers the years 2009 to 2015 in the abstract painter’s critically acclaimed practice. It includes major works from the well-known Groovefucker series, large canvases from the Dissonant Groove exhibition of 2012, and his most recent excursions into glitter in the series Sugar Won’t Work of 2013 and 2014. The survey of nine paintings (and three prints) traces the artist’s recent development of hybrid pictorial motifs and art historical references through the dual lenses of contemporary pop culture and formal abstraction.

This exhibition is organized by the Thames Art Gallery in partnership with the Judith & Norman Alix Art Gallery, Esplanade Arts & Heritage Centre, Moose Jaw Museum & Art Gallery and the Art Gallery of Guelph.

Jaime Angelopoulos, Free Seeker, 2017, collage drawing on paper

Jaime Angelopoulos
August 3-October 14, 2018

Jaime gives physicality to personal emotions and social behaviours by speaking through sculpture and impossibly intertwined drawings. Her subjects first take form on paper through small studies and creative writing – unfolding into the gallery’s physical space in euphoric colour and pattern. Jaime’s exquisite application of line serenade its viewer, and is infused with powerful and sometimes difficult references to contemporary life.

This exhibition is curated by Eve De Garie-Lamanque and circulated by the Musée régional de Rimouski in partnership with the Judith & Norman Alix Art Gallery and Thames Art Gallery.


Ongoing Exhibition

Influencing Identity: Tourism and the Group of Seven
On Display until August 19, 2018.

Escape urban life and delve into the enthralling wilderness portrayed by the elite Group of Seven and its contemporaries. How did their experiences and representations of Canada define a collective Canadian identity? What about landscape came to represent Canada as a nation and still resides in contemporary society? Along with the alluring posters and brochures produced by the Canadian National Railway and the early Canada Parks Association, viewers will discover the parallel story of marketing the majestic Canadian landscape as a reflection of Canadian values and the definition of a national spirit.
