New Exhibition: Dan Pigeon, “Traces”

Saturday, September 1 – Sunday, October 7
Meet the artist opening reception:  Sunday, September 9, 2 – 4pm

DanPigeon. Delve. 2018

Traces began as an exploration of the relationship between man and land, how one shapes the other and vice versa, mostly through the avenues of agriculture and waterways. This series is visually inspired from cartography; how we use maps to record the ever-changing land in various ways and its multitude of layers. We humans trace the land with the use of maps.

I redrew sections of Niagara’s map and then traced and redrew my drawings anew a multitude of times, each time deconstructing and altering the surface of the image furthermore. Deconstructing and altering the surface of the land, much similarly as we humans do.

The title of this series arose firstly from the act of tracing a map and the plentiful meanings and interpretations of the word, trace. The final pieces that are scene here are but only hints of my original drawings of Niagara’s map, and that also only a trace of the original piece of land itself that once existed. What trace will you leave of your existence?

New Exhibition: “4 Artists For Charities”, October 17 to November 30

leave a comment »

4 Artists For Charities, is an exhibit of paintings by four artists, with the proceeds of sales to be donated to designated charities.  For many months the four artist colleagues and friends have been meeting regularly to discuss art, visit galleries, participate in workshops and classes and critique their work.  Although their styles are different and their  paintings their own, there is one thing they all agree on – they want to share their passion with others and in turn, help the community.   They have individually decided to donate the proceeds of sales of paintings at the exhibit to a charity near and dear to them.  Wyn Kalagian of St. Catharines  and  a volunteer with Wellspring Niagara, will donate her proceeds to the Cancer Support organization.  Karen Zanutto of Fonthill currently a Board Member with the United Way of South Niagara will add her proceeds to the 2014 Campaign.   Cathy Peters of Port Colborne and Gayle Yaksich of Hamilton will support the Region’s younger population by donating their proceeds to the Boys and Girls Club of Niagara.

The exhibition runs from October 17 to November 30, 2014 at Arts Place Art Gallery, 714 King Street, Port Colborne, 905.834.9060.
The Artists’ Reception is scheduled for Sunday, October 26, 2014, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.

Gallery Hours are Thursday to Sunday Noon to 4:30 p.m.
