Upper Gallery: Voices of Paint March 16—May 12, 2018
Sonia Haberstich, Frances Thomas and Jennifer Wigmore
This exhibition is a true celebration of the materiality of paint, showcasing contemporary investigations of the medium and its processes. Similarly observing and tapping into the idiosyncrasies of the everyday, Voices of Paint will feature new abstract expressions by regional artist Frances Thomas, recently awarded the Sarick Purchase Award for excellent in thesis work at York University. Hung in conjunction with 3D explorations and assemblages by emerging artists Sonia Haberstich (Montreal) and Jennifer Wigmore (Toronto), the exhibit playfully explores the intersection of painting and sculpture; whimsical, tragic, joyful and political all at once.
