"Weathervane: Curated by Karen Love"
2005-11-19 until 2006-01-15
Weathervane at the Oakville Galleries features the works of thirteen contemporary artists – each addresses weather in their own way. For some artists, the study and presentation of the phenomenological aspects of weather has enormous implications. Others use visual and textual strategies to link atmospheric conditions metaphorically to psychological, political, social and environmental concerns.
The exhibition features works by Marlene Creates, Paterson Ewen, Rodney Graham, Tania Kitchell, Mark Lewis, Richard Rhodes, Seifollah Samadian, Alan Storey, T & T (Tyler Brett and Tony Romano), Diana Thater, Lawrence Weiner and Chris Welsby.
Weathervane is co-produced by Oakville Galleries and the Ottawa Art Gallery. The bilingual, hardcover catalogue Weathervane/L’air du temps featuring essays by Karen Love and Elizabeth May is available for purchase from Oakville Galleries for $25.
