TRAVIS SHILLING
Tyrannosaurus Clan
February 22 - March 12 . 2020 
 
Join Travis Shilling in conversation:
Saturday, February 22 from 2pm - 4pm
 
 
Travis Shilling's Tyrannosaurus Clan had an impactful and applauded exhibition in the unique and modern arena of Burlington, Vermont in the United States.  The astounding collection of paintings meld dimensions of life and spirit within settings of land exploitation.  Excavation upon excavation takes place with deaf ears as the natural world looks in at hubristic ideologies being put in action.  
   
 
At once both mystical and terrestrial, these works demand a response to the urgent question "What is happening here?"  Shilling implies how we answer that question will determine the future of our lives on the planet.

There is a temporal consideration of the here and there; of present and past and that is the traces of influences back through time. It has been said that art arises from art as much as from nature.  - John Doyle

NEW & NOTEWORTHY | AT INGRAM
 
A series of significant historical works have arrived at the gallery in recent weeks and our website is recurrently updated to reflect the activity that surrounds art making from our country's remarkable past.
 
At the Book Shop, mint copies have arrived of Predicaments: Brian Burke, A Retrospective published by The Confederation Centre of the Arts in P.E.I. This magnificent and extensive catalogue of the paintings of Brian Burke, R.C.A. (1952-2017) includes notable writings on the artist's life and work as well as images of canvases that span the course of his career.

Newly available sculptures by E.B. Cox, R.C.A. (1914-2003) have arrived at the gallery.  These works have been instantly magnetic to both art appreciators and children alike, highlighting the endearing nature of one of our country's most illustrious artists.

I want to see how it's going to turn out.  It's as if it were something independent.  It's not a question of how I'm going to turn it out, but rather how it is going to turn out. - E.B. Cox
 
 
We have been busy with the superb paintings and works on paper of Jack Beder (1910-1987), which have been generating an increasing amount of discussion for their exquisite and compendious style.  Indeed, Beder's work holds "a force that is both architectural and broodingly meditative" (The Gazette).  With many new updates to our website, please visit the works of Jack Beder here.
 
FROM ALL OF US | AT INGRAM
 
After time together and rewarding connections in studio with John Doyle, Sean Yelland, and Jessica Levman, we greatly look forward to the months to come.  Jessica Levman is deeply engaged with the progression of Collecting Bones, a selection of phenomenal works that combine the corporeal with the ethereal.  This solo exhibition opens Saturday, June 13 and runs until July 4.
