LAST CHANCE TO SEE CYCLORAMA AND STACKS!
This week marks your last chance to see our current exhibitions before they close on Sunday! Cyclorama showcases the work of Toronto based installation artist Lyla Rye. This exhibition offers a series of still images, single channel videos, and mixed media installations that look to the theatrical curtain as a device to conflate illusion and reality, dreaming and wakefulness, audience and participant.
In Stacks, Halifax based artist Eleanor King finds inspiration in the everyday - those deceptively mundane, overlooked, and understated aspects of contemporary life that one might adapt, revitalize, assemble or dismantle, and in the process, reveal as dignified and often extraordinary.
Sunday: 1 PM to 5 PM | Monday: Closed
Tuesday - Saturday: 10 AM to 5 PM
Mark your calendars! Our upcoming exhibitions, Ecotopia and Ecotone, will open Saturday, February 9 at 8 PM.
