“In the flow” - new paintings by Oxanna Adams and Dennis Gaumond on display at the Red Brick Cafe.
Abstract paintings by Guelph artists Oxanna Adams and Dennis Gaumond celebrate the creative process.
Exhibition runs from July 28 to September 14 at the Red Brick Cafe, 8 Douglas Street, downtown Guelph. An opening reception will be held August 1st, 7 - 9 pm.
Oxanna and Dennis met in the mid-nineties while volunteering at the local chapter of the Council of Canadians. They like to think that their art is informed by the same sense of caring and compassion for the planet that brought them together at meetings and demonstrations.
Dennis, an accomplished musician, finds that abstract painting is akin to musical improvisation. Dennis revels in colours, textures and forms that emerge from his partnership with chance and circumstance. Find out more at https://www.dennisgaumondart.com
Oxanna is driven by the need to capture her experiences in the natural environment. Layers of paint, sometimes thinly applied or scraped away, reveal both the history of the process and a story of place. More about Oxanna at https://oxannaadams.ca
Art As Activism: Truth, Survivance and Resilience, is an exhibition about our collective journey toward decolonization, through the submission of artworks that reflect personal experiences and challenge the conventions of institutional space.
The exhibition will open on August 2 in conjunction with the performance of John Galt and The Instant City, a musical theatre production that navigates Galt’s background as a writer and Colonist. Both the exhibition and the performance will question Galt’s positionality in the context of our local Indigenous history and the impact of colonization that continues to shape Guelph today.
