STUDY OF KEPT LIGHT AND OTHER WORKS
work by NIcholas Wade

Wade has created painted assemblages and sculptural works that explore the fall of light both on and through them. These works enable us to reflect on optics, illusion and the experience of observing a work of art.

 Nick Wade was born in Essex, England. He grew up in Kingston, Ontario and attended St. Lawrence College and York University, where he specialized in Intaglio printmaking. Wade spent several years at the Banff School of Fine Arts working in both printmaking and sculpture, before completing his MFA at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. He has presented 20 solo exhibitions and participated in numerous group exhibitions. Wade taught at many universities before moving to Lethbridge in 1994 where he taught sculpture, printmaking and foundation studies until 2011. He maintains a studio practice in Lethbridge and Cape Chin, Ontario.

LANDSCAPE: AN INTUITIVE AND EMPIRICAL RESPONSE
work by Tony Partridge

Partridge is interested in the tradition of landscape painting and has reflected deeply on the physical and cognitive processes behind this tradition. These highly resolved paintings ask the viewer to consider how the incredibly cerebral and empirical method of sustained observation balances with the intuitive choices a painter must make.

 

Partridge trained at the Alberta College of Art and maintained a studio practice in Lethbridge for several decades. He has participated in numerous group and solo exhibitions and his work is found in many personal and private collections. Since 2012, he has lived and worked in Coleman, Alberta.

 

Throughout Casa: 

Throughout Casa, we are presenting four new exhibitions in our auxiliary exhibition spaces.

In the Concourse Showcase, EVIDENCE by Jonathan Alejandro Miquel-Alvarez's explores the detritus of an artist. This installation investigates documenting, collecting and exploring the evidence left during the process of creating art. . Dropcloths, brushes, tools and studio detritus are combined to create a work of art that is about the production of art.

 Alejandro was born in Cardston and lived in Lethbridge before moving to Saskatchewan when he was 11. Initially interested in graffiti, he was exposed to the art world and transitioned from working in the street to exhibiting his work in interior spaces. Alejandro attended the University of Saskatchewan completing his BFA and then subsequent Education degree. He recently moved back to Lethbridge to pursue teaching opportunities.

In the Concourse Gallery, SPEAK FREELY by Jheri Cook exhibits textural paintings. Cook is an extremely active Lethbridge artist. She works mostly with acrylics but loves the challenge of learning new mediums. Cook loves texture and can often be found with her fingers in the paint. She is displaying expressive paintings completed in vibrant and engaging colours.  

In the Passage Gallery and on the Digital Gallery screens, HOOPLA!  The Textile Surface Design Guild of Lethbridge (TSDG) helped launch this project in January of 2016 with the assistance of funding through the City of Lethbridge’s Public Art Small Projects Grant. Over the course of a year, artists from the TSDG and from ARC in Lethbridge created artwork for the exhibition. Artists worked together preparing individual textile art pieces under the expert instruction of Diane Krys, a textile artist from Edmonton, Alberta. Krys first came to Lethbridge in October of 2015 to initiate the project. Artists continued on, meeting once per month either in the TSDG’s space at Casa or in the studio at ARC. Twenty artists from ARC were mentored and supported by seven TSDG artists as well as staff from ARC.
