Shimmering Light and Shifting Hues
May 1–19, 2015

With a dazzling variety of colours, artist Steve Driscoll presents variations on images of Ontario’s Algonquin Park — a setting that was heavily represented in works by the Group of Seven — using a new form of landscape painting in the exhibit Actually Everything is Just About the Same. Rather than fighting it, he acknowledges that even our view of nature is digitally mediated, and his works seem to be washed with Instagram filters, perfectly capturing the manipulated landscape of memory rather than fact.
Peter Robertson Gallery, 12323-104 Ave., 780-455-7479.

Human Form 
May 2–25, 2015

Provocative sculptural figures challenge viewers to explore the connection between the mind, body, and spirit in Blake Ward’s exhibit Silent Metaphors. Raised in Edmonton, Ward works out of a studio in Monte Carlo and exhibits his stunning figurative sculptures all over the world. The Front Gallery, 12323-104 Ave., 780-488-2952.
