Uncommon Blends

January 20 - March 17, 2018

Artist Reception: Saturday, March 3 from 2-4 pm

Coffee and tea have become part of many daily routines and play an important role for many in their social and individual lives. A companion to the recurring moments in everyday life, coffee and tea keep us warm on a cold day, help the mind stay alert on a tired morning, and accompany us during a break in the workday or in a meeting with a friend.

Through Uncommon Blends, Sam Knopp, Sean Kunz, Noriko Masuda, Mynthia McDaniel, and Juliana Rempel investigate the various routines, rituals, and relationships centred on coffee and tea, and showcases the newly formed relationship of these five artists.

 

Upcoming Exhibitions

Acceptable Bodies
Allison Tunis (Edmonton)

March 24 - June 2, 2018

 The need to feel beautiful and desired is universal, but the standards for how to achieve that are so restrictive that it leaves little chance for many to accomplish this feat. Allison Tunis's embroidery pieces develop a discourse around cultural conditioning and societal implications of restrictive standards of beauty. Tunis’s works feature portraits of persons who shun outdated and constricting notions of what are considered “acceptable” bodies in our society and who celebrate their differences and diversity in ways that can be considered disobedient, either actively or passively. These art pieces are a way for Tunis to explore her own internal evolution away from the traditional paradigm of thin, white, cis, able-bodied women as the epitome of beauty and sexuality, towards a more inclusive understanding of beauty and the shunning of restrictive norms and aesthetic standards. 

Chronicles of a Contemporary Dirtbag: transdisciplinarity and the things you think of when fixing a fence
Jamie Kroeger

March 24 - June 2, 2018

A career with Parks Canada as a resource technician, avalanche technician, and twenty years of travelling in the backcountry lends to the conceptual content that embodies Jamie’s work. She looks to art, science, and human experience as a means of creating a relatable connection to the complex systems that make up ecology and as a means of finding our humble place within them.

 

Perch 
Dena Seiferling and Stefanie Staples (Calgary)

March 24 - June 2, 2018

When Dena Seiferling and Stefanie (Wong) Staples first met, they discovered a mutual enjoyment for working within the space that drifts between childhood fantasy and an adult’s reality. While discussing a potential collaboration, the value of bird biodiversity and the preservation of at-risk bird species rose the forefront. For this exhibition, the artists are focusing on distinct aspects of bird conservation.
