Guillermo Trejo

Opening Reception: Friday February 3, 2017. 7PM – 9PM

Exhibition Dates
Feb 2, 2017 – March 4, 2017

This exhibition will feature a series of posters depicting quotes from Nietzsche, Camus, Sartre, Kerouac, Buda, and others paired with iconic images from protest and social resistance. The result of the combination is an uncannily appropriate protest poster as if the quotes and the images were initially planned to be together.

Guillermo Trejo is a Mexican born artist he now resides in Ottawa, ON. He has a BFA from Bellas Arts School of Painting, Sculpture and Printmaking and an MFA from The University of Ottawa. Trejo is a consultant at the National Gallery of Canada, and teaches at the Ottawa School of Art.

Re: How Many Reasons Do You Need?

Marie Winters

Opening Reception: Friday February 3, 2017. 7PM – 9PM

Exhibition Dates
Feb 2, 2017 – March 4, 2017

Marie’s practice is often driven by her desire to overcome shame through as many facets as possible. Whether she is repurposing discarded industrial materials that denote the artist’s shame, or advertising her Shame Hotline, Marie hopes to communicate a more effective truth about interiority through sentiment and narrative. Her work employs melancholic phrases that allow viewers to create their own personal attachment to the pieces. By tapping into the universal nature of sentimentality, loss and self-deprecation, the work shifts away from evaluating art in terms of its capacity to reflect predefined conditions, and questions what art itself tells us through lived experience.

Marie Winters is a graduate from the University of Alberta’ Bachelor of Fine Arts program and recently completed a 6 months residency at SNAP (Society of Northern Alberta Print-Artists). She has exhibited her work Internationally at Art Bureau in Kielce, Poland and throughout Canada. Marie is also a founding member of the Tennis Club, an artist collective based in Edmonton, Alberta. Her work was published in the medical health journal, Health Science Inquiry (Volume 5, Issue 1, 2014, page 15), the University of Alberta Alumni Magazine, New Trail (Winter 2015) and Canadian Art, Gang Up: 16 Great Canadian Art Collaborations (Summer 2016).
