Arteries: July 2015

By Kaelan Unrau

VANCOUVER —

Mad Pride: Develop Madness – Gallery Gachet – June 19 to July 13 (Mad Pride Cabaret 7-10pm, July 11)

Back in the 60s, French rockstar philosopher Michel Foucault claimed madness is, like, totally a social construct, man. The ultimate veracity of this statement notwithstanding, it’s certainly true that mental illness tends to be misunderstood and denigrated in our present society. Mad Pride offers something of an antidote. In this month-long exhibition, ten artists – each with a history of mental illness – tell their side of the story, exploring such topics as psychiatry, marginalization, and the joys (and terrors) of “neurodiversity.”

Melancholy Bay: Images of English Bay, Burrard Inlet, and Howe Sound – Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery – June 19 to August 23

Since first opening its doors in 1995, University of British Columbia’s Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery has amassed quite the collection of made-in-BC artwork. With Melancholy Bay, Vancouverites have a chance to reawaken themselves to the wonder of our most spectacular of natural resources – the ocean. See how local artists – from the early 1900s up until the present – have perceived and rendered the world around them.

Arts 2015 – Surrey Art Gallery – June 27 to August 22

Presented by the Arts Council of Surrey, Arts 2015 features fifty-one local works spanning a variety of materials and forms, from paint to glass to fabric and more. The exhibition opens with a jury-nominated awards show, in which artists have a chance to take first, second, or third prize in several medium-related categories (“Works on Canvas,” “Mixed Media & Printmaking” and so on). But at the end of the day, it’s all about creativity, inventiveness and fun!

The Flats Block Party – Various Galleries – July 11

The eponymous “Flats” – a geographical area spanning from Main Street and Industrial Ave, down Main to around East 7th Street, over to Clark and then back again – boasts quite the collection of local galleries and exhibition spaces. For one day each year, these venerable institutions – usually engaged in the most fearsome of inter-gallery competition – join forces to put on greatest arts block party this side of Ontario Street. Come celebrate the truce with food, music, beer, and of course, oodles and oodles of art.

The Oasis: Allison Tweedie, Steve Hubert, Vanessa Brown – FIELD Contemporary – July 17 to August 22

arteries - the oasisGolf and fine art might strike one as rather unlikely bedfellows. But in The Oasis, the two activities come together most beautifully. Three local artists – Allison Tweedie, Steve Hubert, and Vanessa Brown – combine their talents to create an interactive sculpture-cum-three-hole golf course. Curious gallerygoers, please pick up your ball, club, and scorecard at the door.
