Karen Trask: “Wordfield” August 6 – September 13, 2009 Opening Reception – Thursday August 6 at 7:30 pm Minarovich Gallery – Elora Centre for the Arts Curated by Phil Irish As you draw near Karen Trask’s evocative sculptures, you discover that they are each made from a surprising material: written text. Through the labour of spinning, weaving, and quilting, Karen Trask transforms printed pages into sculptures that explore both language and silence.

Eva McCauley: Solas agus Scath

March 26 – April 26, 2009: opening reception Thursday March 26, 7:30 pm. The exhibition’s title (pronounced “Solas aguss Scah”) means “Light and Shadow” in Irish Gaelic. Work for the exhibition draws upon McCauley’s experience at the Cill Rialaig artist’s residency, County Kerry, on Ireland’s rugged southwestern coastline. In the isolated village, McCauley experienced the dislocation of being in a foreign place, coupled with an intensity of memory. McCauley’s work includes paintings and monotypes.
