The Thames Art Gallery has announced its summer exhibitions.
This year, the gallery will be featuring two solo exhibitions as former CK residents, Colleen Schindler-Lynch and Grahame Lynch return to the area for the occasion.
Doors to the gallery opened to the public on Saturday, July 2 and a reception for the artists was held as part of the Summer ARTcrawl, on July 29.
The theme for this year’s ARTcrawl gala event is appropriately focused on fashion as both feature artists now teach at Toronto Metropolitan University’s Creative School, Fashion.
In her exhibition Daemon & Saudade, Colleen Schindler-Lynch presents a fascinating collection of work that takes the viewer into the intersection of fashion and fine art.
Beautifully designed and well-crafted dresses fill the gallery spaces along with hand-made adornments, embroidery, and photography. The artist uses clothing as way to create avenues into loss and healing.
New photographic work by Grahame Lynch will be on view in the Mezzanine. Being. Neither Here Nor There began as a project involving thousands of photographs taken in an urban landscape and edited down during the pandemic. With the experience of the pandemic fresh in everyone’s mind, Lynch creates a body of work that examines the transitory nature of the spaces we tend to create and inhabit.
Adult workshops will also be offered with both these talented artists later this summer. Further information and registration will be available at www.tagartspace.com.
These family-friendly exhibitions open to the public on Saturday July 2 – August 27. Admission by donation.
Regular gallery hours are Wednesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
