Marks & Recreation: Works from the MSVU Permanent Collection

June 21, 2024 - August 17, 2024

a large quilt is painted with a green border to reference grass. The 6 large square quilted sections each depict a scene from a garden party. A window to the house from the garden; red flowers growing wildly, a person with light skin is sitting in a floral patch with sunglasses on; two people with black hair pick fruit from a small bowl.

Selected from the MSVU Permanent Collection, the works in this exhibition consider our relationship with nature and how repetitive acts of human interaction can transform the purpose and history of a place or an object, shaping its significance and meaning over time. Featuring works by Renate Deppe, Gathie Falk, Carol Fraser, and Kelly Mark.

Featured image: Beautiful British Columbia Thermal Blanket – Huyen 1980, Gathie Falk. Oil on canvas quilted and stuffed with fibreglass insulation. Collection, MSVU Art Gallery.
