"For anyone with a memory of those decades, Mr. Heath’s work functions like a time machine, sending you back to an era when photographers, folk singers, poets, novelists and filmmakers believed they could directly translate the pain and confusion of what was then portentously labeled the “Human Condition.”"

The exhibition is nonetheless the place to behold the luxurious quality of the prints. Once upon a time photographers believed they could express everything about the world in the sliding tones of the gray scale. Mr. Heath was one who wrote a symphony in black-and-white."

Gallery Artist William Eakin Collaborates with Fellow Winnipeg Artist Craig Love For Exhibition at the University of Winnipeg


"Datumerrata began in 2012 when Craig Love discovered William Eakin’s collection of glitched and rejected photographs. Love responded to Eakin’s images with associative text in a form of word play somewhat akin to puzzles like FourWord. His rubber-stamped textual embellishments suggest clues to the content of Eakin’s images without circumscribing any particular fixed interpretation. In this way, the meaning of the works is enriched and offered up to the viewer for further consideration. The resulting print edition was produced and first exhibited at Martha Street Studio in 2013. Several of the images from datumerrata will be displayed in the foyer of Gallery 1C03."

Exhibit hours: Monday – Sunday, 7:00 a.m. – 11:00 p.m. Closed statutory holidays.
datumerrata will be on display  on the first floor of Centennial Hall opposite Gallery 1C03’ entrance from September 1, 2015 – April 30, 2016. Admission is free and everyone is welcome. Wheelchair accessible.

"My photo-based and curatorial practice emanates from my First Nations/urban background. Making my heritage part of a real-time cultural conversation and challenging the public’s stereotypes of Indigenous peoples have been key objectives. As such, I examine archival materials and incorporate historical photographs as part of the conversation. The word “conversation” implies a give-and-take and, indeed, my intention is to engage public spaces and make them conversation places for our communities."

For more information on the exhibition please visit here: www.uleth.ca

To read an exhibition review from the Lethbridge Herals plese visit here: www.lethbridgeherald.com

“A Necessary Fiction: My Conversation with Nicholas de Grandmaison” is a culmination of many years of work. It’s been a slow burn over the last three decades. This is another stage in that journey. Essentially what I do is repurpose archival collections to address contemporary issues facing the indigenous community in terms of self-identity and self-determination. Having a more visual conversation and expanding how we see paintings from the past, and that they still have relevance. For me, when I look at these paintings that were done, they really come alive for me.”

A recent article in the culture / photography section of the Telegraph by Cherly Newman looks at both the process and final work of gallery artist Alison Rossiter.

"Most photographers would be horrified at the presence of mould or water damage on their photographic paper, but both are exciting to New york artist Alison Rossiter.  “If it’s doing something nasty to the paper, then that’s just fabulous. I love it,” she says."
