Sylvia Tait: Journey

This survey of works on paper by acclaimed West Coast artist Sylvia Tait includes ink drawings, digital drawings, prints, acrylic paintings, collages, posters and ephemera. While Tait is largely recognized as an abstractionist and a colourist, the exhibition will also include a selection of figurative works, with a particular focus on friends, family and the cultural community. 

Accompanying the exhibition is a special catalogue with an introduction by curator Ellen van Eijnsbergen and essay by co-curator Robin Laurence.
