Opening Friday, January 11th 7pm to 9pm RETOOLED: New Assemblages by Justin Cosman and David Hill Reclaiming the discarded, David Hill & Justin Cosman reexamine refuse and the forgotten for their aesthetics and form. Primarily working with metal, established photographer and sculptor Hill ensures whimsy is part of his additive process, with old buttons, knobs and levers rearranged to arrive at abstract figurations in the overall composition. Emerging artist Cosman keeps to the non-objective, exploring space, shape, colour and texture through waste often associated with construction and packaging. Remnants of plywood, cardboard, and sprayfoam become his muse. INNOVATIONS '19: Juried Craft Exhibition An exhibition of contemporary craft by artists from across Canada. Juried by:Dr Denis Longchamps (CEO, Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery), Sarah Quinton (Curatorial Director, Textile Museum of Canada), Stuart Reid (Independent Curator, Arts Writer, and Board Member for the Ontario Craft Council) RECRAFTED: Re-Crafted presents artists from the North Simcoe community who have submitted 2D & 3D works of art that incorporate reclaimed materials to arrive at something new.
