Offsite exhibitions are organized by the Gallery’s Preparator/Exhibition Coordinator and generally draw from works from the City of Burnaby Permanent Art Collection. Offsite exhibitions also present opportunities for emerging and local artists to present their work to a wide audience.
Alex Tedlie-Stursberg: Two Sides of the Same Coin
Sept 12, 2023-January 9, 2024
By extracting copper sulfate and rust from different types of pennies, Alex Tedlie-Stursberg aims to question our relationship to low-value objects, highlighting how value constantly shifts depending on context, time, and place. After being melted down with vinegar and then stained on paper, the root object for these works becomes abstracted and unfamiliar. This process emphasizes the confusing nature of value and the concept of objecthood.
Dan Siney: Learning to Draw, Learning to Paint
Sept 13, 2023-January 10, 2024
Learning to Draw, Learning to Paint is a continuation of Dan Siney’s pursuit of spontaneity, innocence and exploration within an image. By rediscovering the physicality of mark making and (re)learning a primary form of expression, he shifted from photography to creating works on paper. Siney has fostered this approach to learning and adaptation through artwork initiated by his young son and ongoing collaboration with other artists.
