...strange things done...
Opening Reception: Wed, June 17 from 6-7pm
Gallery hours: June 18 - 23, 3-7pm
Threading its way through the works in ...strange things done... is an interest in the manner in which early or low-tech forms of imaging, illusion and other communications technologies may be merged with new technology or with what is now the mundane or obsolete technology of modern times. Most of the artists have created works that are self-illuminated; the camera obscura's optical properties just a starting point for their thinking. Each of the artists in this exhibition is a student or alumni of Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University (NSCAD, Halifax), Thompson Rivers University (TRU, Kamloops), or the Yukon School of Visual Arts (YSOVA, Dawson City).
The Confluence Series at the SOVA Gallery is a DIY community exhibition series which offers a space for local artists working in any medium to exhibit their artwork throughout the summer months.
