H20 Water for Good: 3 artists | 3 walls | 1 planet This exhibition features the work of 3 different artists who have been inspired by our oceans, lakes or rivers. Water speaks to us in many ways. And it has a lot to teach and remind us. Rebecca Brianceau, Carolyn Sharp and Helen Utsul have each embraced the beauty of water in a way that will harken peaceful days at the beach, the power and might of the ocean, the restful calm of our rivers. The exhibition will also remind us that our water is precious, and clean water is something worthy of protecting. OPENING RECEPTION is Saturday April 6th from 2 -4PM. Gallery is open 6 days a week. Admission is always free. For more information visit https://eloracentreforthearts.ca/galleries/harris-exchange-gallery/

Metropolitans - Exhibition by Sherry Czekus In ‘Metropolitans’, Czekus considers the crowd as an entity that forms as a result of the structure of the urban environment. Looking back to Flaneurism in the late 19th c in Europe, Czekus investigates the rise of urban culture as a social phenomenon where people took to the sidewalks of the city, as a way to see and be seen, interacting, socializing publicly. She records her experience and observations initially through video and photography and then employs paint and the process of painting to portray the urban crowd as a single entity. Abstracted segments of the figures and patterns on clothing dominate the shallow space in the paintings that attempt to illustrate the visual perception of the everyday experience of city life. The paintings conceal the identities of the individual figures caught in the scene in an effort to expose the identity of the crowd at large. OPENING RECEPTION is Saturday April 6 from 2 - 4PM.

Join us to welcome this body of work to our gallery and meet artist Eryn O'Neill. The exhibit will continue until May 26th, 2019 Eryn’s paintings study local urban landscape through the perspective of a runner. Being an engaged runner is essential to her practice; often the main method for collecting information for her paintings. Using running, she is aware how cities create pathways conducive to navigating on foot. The images are a direct response to the non-fixed perspective of a runner. Constantly in a state of heightened awareness, where she is looking isn’t from the perspective of a stationary observer, allowing for various perspectives and vantage points. The paintings are the product of months of repetitive outings, in all conditions, to gather enough information, visually and mentally, to create paintings suggestive of a figure navigating an environment. While Eryn’s paintings are completed in the studio without hazards such as vehicles, the images capture the experience of being in an active urban space. The exhibition, Reimagined Routes, uses images of seemingly familiar areas and passageways.
