PAST VAAA EXHIBITION: CONCEPT

April 30 to May 30, 2009
Opening Reception: April 30, 7 to 9:30 pm

VAAA Gallery, Concept

Visual Arts Alberta presents CONCEPT, artwork from artists Agnieszka Soldat and Roger Scrimshaw.

Agnieszka Soldat’s drawings express the complexity of an inner unconscious reality. These thoughts and ideas are pre-verbal, existing in the form of images. Her work aims to explore and understand the vast matrix that people are separate from and yet a part of.

Roger Scrimshaw’s slip-casted pieces are influenced by love, life, death, media, politics and history–all of the things that influence and shape most people. The slip cast figurative anthropomorphic creatures speak to September 11, 2001 and our world turned upside down by events since then.

PAST VAAA EXHIBITION: PRISM

March 26 to April 25, 2009
Opening Reception: March 26, 2009, 7 to 9:30pm

Prism, VAAA Gallery, March 26 to April 25, 2009

Visual Arts Alberta presents Prism, artwork from artists Laurie MacFayden, Helen Rogers and Liz Sullivan.

Laurie MacFayden’s energetic images are created by throwing around, “directing” the paint to produce landscapes that are joyous, unfettered. Liz Sullivan’s acrylic paintings capture the ephemeral beauty and intricacies of the prairies; intermingling colour, light and texture. A red underpainting provides the foundation and heart of each work. The subsequent layers of vibrant colour and texture result in a personal expression of her connection to the prairies. Helen Rogers’ three dimensional work is bold, vibrant and explores styles from geometric abstract to whimsical realism. Through the use of various materials, such as tiles, stain glass, beads, jewelry, pottery, stones and anything else that “works,” the resulting sculpture is a colourful reflection of fun, whimsy and light.
