Fri-Mon, February 20-May 16, 2016, 11-6 Tues-Sat | LIVING WITH GLASS For well over five centuries, glass from the island of Murano, Italy has been desired by collectors of all persuasions, from leading scholars to day-trip tourists. The extraordinary skill of Murano’s glassmakers is indisputable. Veritable magicians, they transform cold material into explosions of light and color, encapsulated through the centuries in vases, sculptures, chandeliers, and tableware.

Fri-Mon, October 23-February 15, 2016, | LIVING BUILDING THINKING: ART AND EXPRESSIONISM Exhibition
2 Sir Winston Churchill Square
Edmonton AB T5J 2C1

Sat-Sun, November 21-April 10, 2016, | CHARRETTE ROULETTE: FABRIC FABRIC is the theme of the third Charrette Roulette. Lead artist Yvonne Mullock with local designer Teng Teng Chong, will present HOMEWORKS. Using simple printed and decorative techniques, each design will be collaboratively negotiated and produced in the space. Textiles designed by Mullock and Chong will be sewn and made into items to offer comfort to those who visit the exhibition, slowly transforming the gallery into an environment whereby visitors can utilize the artwork: walk upon, sit on, eat and drink from the produced objects. These designs will carry references to everyday influences personal to Mullock and Chong, transforming familiar scenes and narratives into a spectacular vocabulary of repeat patterns.

Tues-Mon, January 12-April 11, 2016, | CONNIE SABO: INFORMATION + IMPRESSION The North Vancouver Community Arts Council presents Connie Sabo
Information + impression
January 12 – April 11, 2016
information + impression examines the dichotomy of how information can enlighten us as well as contain and control us. The work is created entirely out of newspaper, the ubiquitous daily news, a tactile sliver of our recent history: a selection of information that has been deemed important enough to impress into the record. The paper is torn into strips then twisted to create warps and wefts which are woven together to create a transformation of this information.

Pat Schendel and Brandon Martin

Sat-Fri, January 30-April 22, 2016, 12 - 5PM | EXHIBITION Allison Hrabluik: The Splits
January 30 - April 22, 2016
SFU Gallery

In her exploration of narrative construction, Allison Hrabluik's visual practice finds its focus in the voices, rhythms and methodologies of storytelling. Her work includes video, sculpture, animation, drawing, performance and text, often to humorous or absurdist ends. With a recent focus on choreography, and collaboration with both dancers and musicians, Hrabluik's works reveal characters through various narrative processes: so-called documentary objectivity, the messy subjectivity of first-person narration, allegorical third-person perspective, and the generative ambiguity of abstraction.

The Splits, Hrabluik's most recent video work, combines documentary and narrative in a montage of motion and sound. The camera documents a group of twenty people gathered in a hall to perform. Scissors clip, a rope whirs, the sound of a mouth harp interrupts an operatic scream. The cast includes real-life performers whose skills range from the mundane to the extraordinary: a hula hooper, a singer, a pizza dough thrower, speed skippers, tap dancers, gymnasts and dog trainers. Two men make salami, a woman gets a haircut and someone eats too many hotdogs. Hrabluik’s editing creates an exquisite corpse, connecting the performers as their bodies tap out a spellbinding rhythm.

Hrabluik lives and works in Vancouver. Her work has been presented nationally and internationally, including at Galerie Tatjana Pieters, Gent; Western Bridge, Seattle; Vancouver Art Gallery; Mercer Union, Toronto; Video Pool, Winnipeg; Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery; Southern Alberta Art Gallery, Lethbridge; Market Gallery, Glasgow; The Western Front, Vancouver; and the Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver.
