Opening reception: Thursday, February 24 from 8-10 pm Artist talks opening night: Lindsey Bond at 6:30 pm Marie-Eve Martel at 7:00 pm

This month in the Main Gallery, Harcourt House exhibits the work of Quebec artist, Marie-Eve Martel and in the Front Room, local artist, Lindsey Bond.

Martel presents, Agricultural Eclipse, an exhibition spanning media from low relief sculpture to printmaking. Using the barn as an architectural icon, she looks at the disappearance of these objects within our landscape alongside the proliferation of suburban areas.

In the Front Room, multimedia artist Lindsey Bond presents her new body of work, Negotiating Spaces: Visual Recollections of Train Travel in Canada. Using medium format film, Bond investigates the perception of space in a VIA Rail journey across Canada. From Vancouver to Halifax and Winnipeg to Cambridge she attempts to rekindle the relationship between individuals and the land.

Both artists will present short artist talks prior to the reception. Join as at 6:30 to hear about Bond’s travels by train followed by Martel’s look into “the death of human scale agriculture.”
