LAMENT OF THE BUTTERFLIES
Artists: Edith Krause + Doris Auxier
July 31 – September 12
Main Gallery

Lament of the Butterflies is two bodies of work: Mausoleum: Red List Lament, an installation by Auxier that consists of player piano scrolls suspended from the ceiling with fourteen paintings of red list plants amidst them and The Butterfly Effect by Krause, a series of multi-media works layering screen-printed maps, invasive plant species and digital photographs of butterfly wings. These beautiful and disturbing images depict the fragility of our natural environment. The exhibition is further intensified by a soundscape by Jesse Krause.

Exhibition Co-Partners: MacVeigh Contracting Ltd. and John + Bania Chan

VESTIGES
Artist: Bob McLeod
July 31 – September 12
Discovery Gallery

Vestiges is an exhibition of multi-media sculptures, featuring blown glass, salvaged metal hardware and parts. Inspired by cast-offs found along the water and in the trash, McLeod transforms these man-made and abandoned pieces into sculpture by combining blown glass throughout the forms. The juxtaposition of the volatile and fragile glass with the metal parts that seem indestructible creates an aesthetic tension in each work.

Exhibition Partners: Pam + Gary Dobbs
