Mathew Reichertz Untilted No. 44 (Tiny Town series) 2006 oil on canvas, 152.4 x 182.88 cm
This exhibition draws out tendencies that circulate among the artists of Halifax Regional Municipality and its environs, suggesting patterns of artistic affiliation as well as rifts. Individual artists from a range of career stages and practices were invited to nominate a work by another artist for presentation. Nominated artists, in turn, selected a work by their nominator. Each then contributed a text responding to aesthetic and thematic qualities of the work they selected. An illustrated catalogue containing the texts accompanies the exhibition. Artists include: Gerard Choy, Frances Dorsey, Wilma Needham, Peter Dykhuis, Drew Klassen, Ivan Murphy, Geri Nolan-Hilfiker, Susan McEachern, Dan O’Neill, Ariella Pahlke, Jan Peacock, Mathew Reichertz, Leah Garnett, Joyan Saunders & Kathleen Tetlock, Gary Wilson, and Robert Zingone
PARTY WITH THE ARTISTS RECEPTION on Thursday, 7 September, 7-9 p.m. The free charter bus leaves 5163 Duke Street at 6:30 p.m., returning downtown at 9:00.
