There’s one week left to experience inter.action at Studio Art Gallery.
inter.action is an exhibit that has taken over a section of the gallery space on 199 Provost Street. Brightly colored strings of yarn criss-cross throughout the space and on the walls creating images and designs guided by both the artist and any teens or adults wishing to participate in the interactive process.
“A key component of this project is to create an intimate space for conversation, and the creative act is used here to facilitate the meeting of strangers,” writes the exhibit’s Vancouver-based artist Layra Bucci in her project statement.
The results of those interactions are on display for now until the closing reception on March 29 between 6 and 8 p.m.
Also sharing the space are paintings from Janet Wallace’s in an small exhibit called “Celebrating Women” where splashes of color and vibrant imagery relating to the value and rights of women worldwide—all this overlays newspaper cuttings from 2016 Los Angeles where Wallace had been living these past 28 years.
Since returning to the Maritimes, Wallace’s work has also been displayed at the Museum of Industry and will be opening another show at The Bistro in New Glasgow on April 7.
All works from both artists will remain at Studio Lab Gallery from now until March 29. Anyone wishing to participating in inter.action can register at https://interaction-project.eventbrite.com
