EXHIBITION: Neon Glow by Amanda McCavour at The Earl Selkirk Gallery @ ARTiculations (until January 20, 2011)
The Junction is absolutely jammed with exciting design & craft shops and creative celebrations of late, so it was more of an ‘awesome, of course’ than an ‘no, really??’ when Amanda alerted me to to the fact that a ARTiculations, a cute new art supply store/workshop space/exhibition venue has opened there.
You can catch Amanda’s window installation and gallery show in the space until January 20th, check out the ARTiculations blog for upcoming workshops , and pop in to the shop at 2928 Dundas St West to stock up on supplies to make work at home/in your studio.
ARTiculations is a new art supply store (+ gallery + resource center) which just recently opened up in the Junction. I will be showing work in the window space and the Earl Selkirk gallery within the store.
Using spirograph drawings, scribbles, paper snowflakes and diagrams as inspiration, the projects in this show are colourful accumulations of thread. These pieces are intricate three-dimensional scribbles, accumulations of lines and repetitive actions in the window space and gallery of ARTiculations. Neon green and yellow draws your attention, it highlights things. These colours are sometimes the colour of post-its or toxic waste. Neon orange is often used to caution or warn. On road signs it might mean construction work is ahead. The bright green, yellow and orange threads used to create these installations are barely visible when viewing just one thread but through the build up of line, they create neon atmospheres.
Exhibition runs from December 1-January 20, 2012
