Exhibits: Carrie Allison-Goodfellow, Penelope Domries, Alannah Journeay

July 25, 2017 - August 26, 2017

New exhibits at ARTsPLACE Gallery!

In our main space, Carrie Allison-Goodfellow’s Displaced (details below).

Penelope Domries returns with Worlds Apart Revisited, showing in the Chapel Gallery, and our 2016 Scholarship recipient, Alannah Journeay, has her first solo exhibit in the Mym Gallery.

 

Displaced contemplates, and calls into question, the destruction and alteration of natural habitats for urbanization and developmental purposes. Carrie Allison-Goodfellow’s work is rooted in her identity as a mixed Indigenous European woman. Her work explores issues such as land, place, identity, histories, environmental discourses, and personal histories and concerns, using botanicals as metaphors for narrating these issues. Through researching both botanical migrations and Aboriginal histories she forms connections that speak to an alternative grand narrative involving the environment, westernization, globalization and Indigenous stories. Using both traditional and non-traditional painting mediums Carrie plays with concepts of ephemerality and colonization. Displaced calls into question colonized space and what the costs of these spaces are.
