Lunar Tails: Ruminations on Animals of the Chinese Zodiac
Barb Snyder & Corey Mah
April 4 to 29, 2018
Opening night: Fri Apr 6, 6:30 to 9:30pm
This spring, in the Year of the Dog, Corey Mah (“amiable Rat”) and Barb Snyder (“mischievous Monkey”) present work exploring the animals of the Chinese zodiac. The Chinese animal zodiac, or shengxiao (‘born resembling’), is a repeating cycle of 12 years, with each year being represented by an animal and its reputed attributes. With both humour and reverence, Barb and Corey ask: What stories can be told (or imagined) and what beliefs or scepticism can be promulgated by this eastern zodiac?

Mid-century Landscapes: a Betty Jean Drummond Retrospective
January 10 to February 4, 2018
Betty Jean Drummond (1920-2004) was an honours graduate of the Ontario College of Art and worked as a commercial artist before discovering a passion for printmaking in 1967. This retrospective of selected etchings and collagraphs highlights Drummond’s explorative approach to printmaking, starting with a memory and working directly on the plate. Her richly textured landscapes evoke the mid-century aesthetic, currently so popular. These timeless recollections of Pacific Northwest mountains and ocean can be seen at Dundarave Print Workshop and Gallery from January 10 to February 4, 2018.
Railroaded by Leonard Brett
March 29 – April 23
Opening Reception: Saturday April 1, 3-6 pm
Leonard Brett’s new period of exploration of many different ideas rather than a theme follows in the footsteps of Francis Picabia who named this mode of production ‘relache’ or relaxed. This multi directional quest has opened a door into new territory resulting in a freedom of expression and a wealth of varied images that push the boundaries of printmaking.
