Arteries: October 2014

Friday 03rd, October 2014 / 17:56
By Sara Elizabeth Taylor

CALGARY — Though Canadians complain bitterly about the dropping temperatures and the inevitable arrival of the snow this time of year, there is something hiding behind our grumbling: a distinct pride about our collective national ability to survive our harsh winters. So, even though Canada Day takes place in July, take some time this month to celebrate being Canadian, with a series of exhibitions celebrating and showcasing our great nation: its artists, its stories and its landscapes.

Homecoming (Kim Dorland) & Voted Most Likely
Contemporary Calgary
October 16 – January 18, 2015

As a follow-up to her recent curatorial endeavour at the Angell Gallery, Kim Dorland – who grew up in Red Deer but is currently based in Toronto – is pairing up with Contemporary Calgary to showcase Calgary-based artists working in all mediums for a group exhibition titled Voted Most Likely running at C2 (City Hall location). Voted Most Likely will run parallel to Homecoming, a decade-long retrospective of Dorland’s career curated by Jeffrey Spalding and running at C (Stephen Ave. location).

Mother Tongue (Sara Robichaud)
Herringer Kiss Gallery
October 18 – November 15

Based in Nanaimo, B.C., Sara Robichaud creates abstract paintings enmeshed with her personal life experiences, inspired by her particular interest in the assimilation of language. By integrating biomorphic shapes with hard edge abstract painting, Robichaud creates a unique abstract language that is both deeply personal and universal.

Diminishing Returns (John Folsom)
Newzones Gallery
October 25 – November 22

Conceived during a two-week residency at the Banff Centre, Diminishing Returns presents the area of Banff through dual lenses, depicting it as a historically picturesque destination while also illuminating problems associated with climate change. The exhibition features photographs that have been altered through the use of oil paint, presenting the hiking trails for the park system as a grand introspective escape. Be sure to join the opening reception on October 25 from 1-4 p.m.
