The Kube: Art Exhibition: Jennifer deGroot ‘Remixing Voyerurism’

to July 2. Jennifer is an oil-based, figurative painter working out of Vancouver Island. At a young age, she began creating art as a means of nurturing her blossoming sense of personal identity within the microcosm of her restrictive, religious home and social life. Through years of study, she has built a body of work that is closely informed by her personal experience. It is an exploration of sexuality, gender, and identity expression and, alternately, a clear rejection and refutation of repression.

Art Exhibition: Stories From Skins and Skirts | ELEANOR HANNAN, JANE KENYON, JUDE NEALE, ELIZABETH DANCOES

to Apr 28. Two textile artists and two poets come together in an exhibition based on mutual appreciation, one medium sparking the other to bring about a confluence of ideas and inspiration. Stories from Skins and Skirts in the Main Gallery demonstrates the myriad ways in which the artist and writer work together. Never simply a straightforward illustration where the writer writes and the artist uses their skills to respond, this collaboration takes many subtle and unexpected forms that exemplify our interpolations of each other’s creative geographies while negotiating our current time. Through mythology, narrative, figurative exploration, and abstract expression, they find themselves revisiting themes of autonomy.
