Coming Up in the Gallery

New work by Ricardo Copado and Daniel Evans!

“Travelling Within Dreams”, paintings by Ricardo Copado in Gallery A, is a series of works that depict imaginary worlds existing in a parallel dimension. These surreal scenes, inspired by nature and other realistic elements, depict a variety of unexpected juxtapositions that capture the viewer’s interest.

In Gallery B, “Body/Language” is a series of large scale drawings by Daniel Evans, exploring the archetypal story of star-crossed lovers. The work uses the sensuality of figure drawing to investigate narrative themes of passion, loss, transgression, and dependence.

The exhibition runs from January 26 to February 25, 2012, with the opening reception on Thursday, January 26 from 7:00-9:30 pm. The VAA Gallery is open from Wed-Fri: 10-4 pm and Sat: 12-4 pm. The gallery will be closed on Feb. 18 for Family Day.

FLACC ARTIST IN RESIDENCE PROGRAM: BELGIUM

DEADLINE:  SEPTEMBER 1
Disciplines: Ceramics, Drawing & Painting, Glass, Graphic Design, Media Art, Multi Media, Sculpture, Woodcraft
Target Group: International, National

FLACC is a workplace for visual artists and creates the conceptual, organisational and technical conditions for realising unique artist projects. Every year, FLACC selects ten artists to set up a new project. In each annual selection, FLACC aims to strike a balance between national and international artists, between beginners and artists with experience, between autonomous art and/or research projects and artists that deal in more concrete terms with the historical, geographical or social context of the workplace. FLACC has metal and woodworking workshops, a digital studio, and a foundry with a furnace and kilns for ceramics, bronze and glass applications, and an extensive workspace. The staff is knowledgeable about the production possibilities of nearby workplaces and collaborates with those workplaces and with schools and companies to give the artists the best possible support and assistance.

FLACC offers accommodation, a workplace, covered travel expenses, a per diem as well as a small production budget.

By investing in ‘in situ’ projects within vacant or abandoned industrial buildings, QE attempts to explore our urban zones and to reach a diverse public. Quartier Ephémère runs an International Residency Programme, a France-Québec Exchange Programme and a new residency programme for curators of the Americas. The Canada Council for the Arts is offering an international residency program at the Darling Foundry for foreign professional visual artists from outside of Canada.
