Winter Exhibitions at Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery
The Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery’s winter exhibits, Gather…Arrange…Maintain and Ornamental Boundaries, explore themes of friction and fusion through materials, and artistic and cultural practices, showcasing the work of local and internationally known artists.
Gather… Arrange …Maintain presents 30 years of work by contemporary artist Jane Buyers. Employing a variety of processes in sculpture, drawing and printmaking, Buyers references architecture, tools, books and botanical imagery as places of action and desire. From her early architectural dioramas to recent drawings which explore floral patterns borrowed from domestic textiles, Buyers has focused her attention on the dynamics of labour and accumulation. Her work consistently articulates a sense of tension between utility and decoration, the organic and the artificial, the permanent and the ephemeral. In Buyers’ hands, the search for a synthesis out of opposing forces expresses a desire to be connected, to make order and to find meaning in our surroundings.
Additional Programs Related to the Exhibitions include: (all events are free)
• Artist Talk with Jane Buyers: Sunday February 17, 2 – 3 pm
• Walk the Talk, public tour: Sunday February 24, 2 – 3 pm
• Off Topic – two unconventional talks on collecting inspired by the themes in our current exhibitions: Krystina Mierins and Bill Clarke: Thursday, February 28, 7 – 9 pm
