Gallery Artist Sarah Anne Johnson in UK Exhibition

"For the first time in its five year existence, studio1.1′s annual Lottery has been won not by a single artist able to present a solo show, but by writer and curator Paul Carey-Kent.

‘The found and the collaged are dominant modern modes: what artists choose to use, and how and why they present or combine them, count for more than their ability with traditional techniques. One could also say that life in most of the world is less about individual survival than it would have been in pre-modern eras, more about how we live together and whether we can survive that. The Combinational looks at how six artists combine materials in sculpture, video, painting, photography and mergers thereof, to reflect on how we live together . Moreover, the show is itself a combination of Canadians – Sarah Anne Johnson and Wil Murray – and Britons – Sue Collis, Appau Junior Boakye-Yiadom , Suzanne Moxhay and Catherine Herbert.’" - Studio 1.1

Exhibition Dates: July 4th-27th, 2014
Location: Studio 1.1 London

Gallery Artist Alex Webb Featured in Time LightBox, The New York Times, and The Guardian

With his exhibition Memory City showing at Gallery R in Rochester, New York, Time LightBox, The New York Times Lens, and The Guardian take a closer look at Alex Webb's work that uses the very medium that shaped the culture of the city it was produced in.

"When Alex Webb was photographing at the Seabreeze Amusement Park in Rochester, N.Y., a man turned to the Magnum photographer, looked at his digital Leica and said: 'You know, I designed the sensor for that camera.'

For many people in Rochester, Kodak has always been more than just a photography company. '[Everyone] has either worked for Kodak, or had a family member or friend who worked for the company,' notes Rebecca Norris Webb, who, with her husband, has just released Memory City (Radius Books, 2014), a photography book about the impact Kodak has had on the upstate New York city of 200,ooo." - Time LightBox

Gallery Artist Elaine Stocki in The New Yorker

Please join Elaine Stocki in wrapping up her exhibition at Thomas Erben Gallery in New York.

"The Canadian photographer makes her New York solo d├ębut with big, unframed black-and-white pictures, crudely hand-tinted and curling off the wall, that look like period artifacts. Portraits of men carousing or posing awkwardly might have come from an old boxing gym or a theatrical agent’s office. Other images—of a leering geezer framed by palm trees, three female nudes struggling with a large painting, hands exchanging a slice of bologna over a collage of lunch meat—are comically hallucinatory. Through June 28." - The New Yorker

Gallery Artist Josef Hoflehner Article On Jet Airliner Series

"Only a small fence separates Runway 10 at the Princess Juliana International Airport from Maho Beach. Due to the short runway length, planes have to fly over the beach at low altitudes as they prepare to land.

The Hoflehners shot the “Jet Airliner” series on a 6x6 Hasselblad SWC, which made capturing the planes that were traveling at roughly 200 miles per hour a difficult task.

'Unlike a modern DSLR, which can take numerous images of one plane arriving, we only had one shot per landing, but we loved the challenge!” said Josef. “It’s pretty difficult since most people on the beach are in constant movement and you have to walk or run with them if you want them in the image'".

Sarah Anne Johnson at Julie Saul Gallery

Please join gallery artist Sarah Anne Johnson at her upcoming exhibition at Julie Saul Gallery in New York. She will be showing work from her Arctic Wonderland and Festival series. 

Exhibition Dates: June 19th - August 15th, 2014

"The notion of a virgin landscape is impossible to imagine in 2014. Whether visible or unseen, there are forces at work that shape our perception of a natural site. Like ghosts or memories, our visualization of place is informed by the real and imagined. Our summer exhibition will feature work by three photo-based artists who are overlaying ideas and assumptions of the natural landscape in or on their imagery." - Julie Saul Gallery

Gallery Artist Cynthia Greig's Collection At The AGO

Included the the upcoming exhibition Fan The Flames at the AGO are selections from gallery artist Cynthia Greig's personal photography collection.

"The AGO celebrates WorldPride 2014 in Toronto with an exhibition that explores queer identity and the play of gender. Artists have used photographs and videos to question gender norms and express an expanded range of individual identities. The history of these representations - by queer artists and of queer subjects - charts an increasingly diverse and public presence that challenges us to consider the ways everyday gestures, objects, tastes and styles construct and dismantle our gendered selves." - The Art Gallery of Ontario


Exhibition Dates: June 18th - September 7th, 2014
Opening: July 3, 2014 7:00pm-11:30pm (First Thursdays)
Location: AGO, 317 Dundas Street West, Toronto, ON

Next Exhibition - Carl Zimmerman: Cold City


The gallery is pleased to present "Cold City," our second solo exhibition of work by Canadian photographer Carl Zimmerman.

CARL ZIMMERMAN
Cold City


Exhibition Dates: June 14 – July 12, 2014
Reception for the Artist: Saturday, June 14, 2-5pm
Artist Talk: Saturday, June 14, 2:30pm; the Artist Talk will take place in the gallery space during the Reception for the artist.

For over two decades, Zimmerman’s installation and photographic practice has explored the idea of constructed environments, in particular, the utopian role played by Neo-classical architecture.

Exterior View With Pier, 2013

He begins this process by constructing architectural models that are photographed and then digitally edited. The resulting images have been displayed in both traditional gallery and installation settings, often modified to suggest a bunker type space.

Interior With Sky, 2013

Zimmerman’s first photographic series, “Lost Hamilton Landmarks,” developed out of his interest in ambitious and authoritarian-styled national building programs in the period leading up to WWII. This was followed by “Landmarks of Industrial Britain” which reflected on the 19th century Roman and Greek prototypes popular during the Industrial Revolution.

Interior With Pool, 2013

In "Cold City" Zimmerman continues to investigate the underlying utopian and monumentalist themes of the previous two series. Influenced by images of Soviet industrial complexes associated with the Cold War, "Cold City" is developed around the idea of these large "closed cities", many of which are situated in extremely remote or arctic locations.

Interior With Columns, 2013

Carl Zimmerman (b. Hamilton, ON, 1951) was influenced at a young age by oversized public and industrial buildings in his hometown. He has been exhibiting his work throughout Canada and Europe for the past 25 years and can be found in permanent collections of: Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin; Museum London, London, Ontario; Canada Council Art Bank; Art Gallery of Hamilton, Hamilton, Ontario; Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Halifax, Nova Scotia; Confederation Centre Art Gallery, Charlottetown, PEI; St. Mary's University Art Gallery, Halifax, Nova Scotia; Owens Art Gallery, Sackville, New Brunswick; Nova Scotia Art Bank.

Note: The price list will be made public on June 14th.
