    Let Us Take You There: Adam Noonan and Linda Mercer Show and Sale Art Gallery of Greater Victoria THURSDAY OCT 10 | 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM Embrace the colours of the fall season and celebrate the works of two long-standing local artists in the AGGV’s Art Rental and Sales Program.

He uses a distinctive colour palette of oranges, reds, and golds, and his extraordinary use of shadow and light adds vibrancy to his paintings. Linda Mercer is a unique multidisciplinary artist (painter, ceramicist, and sculptor) and she expresses playful, good-natured, and often humorous aspects of her new urban world in her work such as capturing the joy of people walking their dogs. Both artists invite you to walk along the path of their imagination and ignite curiosity. Join us for a glass of wine at the Opening Reception in the Massey Sales Gallery and enjoy 10% off sales! Artist talk and Q&A starts at 7 pm. Show and Sale runs until November 9. www.aggv.ca

    The Radical Influence of Buddhism on Art: Artists Convene in Victoria The public is invited to attend two special presentations, as part of In the Present Moment: Buddhism, Contemporary Art and Social Practice. A Research Convening. These events are organized by the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria in partnership with the University of Victoria, Faculty of Fine Arts, Multifaith Chapel and Centre for the Study of Religion in Society. On Friday Oct. 25 from 7:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. the public is invited to The Orion Opening Keynote Lecture, Lecture on Nothing by Kay Larson. Larson is an acclaimed art critic, columnist, and author who wrote feature articles and art criticism for New York magazine for fourteen years. When that job ended, she began Zen Buddhist practice at Zen Mountain Monastery in upstate New York. Larson will discuss John Cage’s seminal text, Lecture on Nothing, first performed at the 8th Street Artists’ Club in New York in 1949. The lecture is written as a piece of music organized around a series of “empty” time intervals or durations. The central statement of the lecture, ‘I have nothing to say and I’m saying it’ reads as an oxymoron at first, but when considered further, reveals Cage’s inquiry into Buddhism. This lecture takes place at the University of Victoria, Phillip T Young Recital Hall, and will be followed by a performance of Cage’s text, scored by Kay Larson, directed by Christopher Butterfield, (Director, School of Music), and featuring local artists and performers. On Sunday Oct. 27 from 3:30 p.m. - 5:30 p.m., the public is invited to attend The Orion Keynote Conversation, Beautiful Trouble: A Conversation on Activism, Art and Buddhism with Suzanne Lacy, artist and Professor¸ Roski School of Art and Design, University of Southern California (Los Angeles) and Jodie Evans, author, activist, co-director, CODEPINK (Los Angeles), taking place at the University of Victoria, Hickman Building, 105 Lecture Theatre. Suzanne Lacy is a pioneering artist in social art practice who was introduced to Buddhism in the mid-1980s. Earlier this year, Lacy was the subject of a major retrospective exhibition at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA), titled Suzanne Lacy: We Are Here. Jodie Evans is a cultural producer and global activist who has worked with His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, and the Zen master, Thich Naht Hahn, who advocated for a notion of engaged Buddhism during the Vietnam War. Join in a conversation between these two long-time friends, exploring the relationship between art and activism, activism and Buddhism, and the spaces in between. “UVic’s Visual Arts Department is very pleased to be hosting this AGGV-organised event in conjunction with the Faculty of Fine Arts. The world-class calibre of the invited artists and scholars makes this a key event in the study of the immense impact of Buddhist teachings on modern and contemporary art,” said UVic Visual Arts Chair Paul Walde In the Present Moment: Buddhism, Contemporary Art and Social Practice is a multi-phase research and exhibition project led by AGGV Curator, Haema Sivanesan. The project takes a chronological and thematic approach towards examining the impact of Buddhism on art in North America from the post-war period (c1950) to the present. Jon Tupper, Director of the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria added, "the AGGV's collaboration with UVic to present this research convening is of great value, enhancing our community outreach and engaging students and faculty with the Gallery's mission. These two Orion lectures are free and open to all and promise to entertain, provoke and challenge preconceived ideas of both art and Buddhism." Research support is generously provided by The Robert H N Ho Family Foundation, Hong Kong and the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, New York.

    waterfalling Shelley Penfold | Daniel Laskarin September 6 to October 5, 2019 Opening Friday, September 6, 7pm Artist Talks: Saturday, September 7 at 12pm (Penfold) | Saturday, September 28 at 2pm (Laskarin) Deluge Contemporary Art 636 Yates Street, Victoria BC | deluge.ca Gallery Hours: Wed–Sat, 12–5pm Featuring painted diptychs by Vancouver-based Shelley Penfold and sculpture by Victoria’s Daniel Laskarin, waterfalling explores the nature and breadth of our human interactions. Employing an abstracted visual language arising from attraction and aversion, question and response, the work in this exhibition considers how our thoughts and conversations can break apart to reform and coalesce. Shelley Penfold My paintings are based on chance encounters, the way materials interact with surfaces and how they come together and settle, interact, and speak to each other. I work en plein air at times to find the language of nature. The ways that the materials mix and materialize on the surface of the paintings is not unlike the disparate synching that happens in a forest, meadow, or other landscape. There are a multitude of narratives that exist in each work and abstraction drives some of these conversations. There are interjections of cultural symbols, personal experience, icons, architecture, and a dictionary of marks that can appear at any time on the surface. When the inner dialogue that exists while in the process of making shifts, sometimes those marks etc are removed. This removal, build up and taking away is part of the overall history of each painting and is typically allowed to show through. But, at times, the marks are laid onto the surface as deliberate moves. These moves happen after a period of thought, experimentation (will the material hold up as I think it will) and a willingness to tell a story and to express an emotion or thought of something that has been observed in my life. These are personal narratives or portraits that utilize universal markers to make the paintings relational. There is intention involved as much as there are deliberate movements. At times, I can think about what is next for weeks or months. But once I get going those marks, moves, are laid down and left to settle to be contemplated upon, not unlike words on a page or of dark energy that exists but is not yet fully understood but has the ability to pull a universe apart. Daniel Laskarin After a career as a helicopter pilot/engineer I turned to the visual arts as a field of equal, if dissimilar, danger. My practice is one of restless contemplation. It is object based, materially and philosophically rooted. It is an investigation of our experience of objects as other bodies and of the ways in which art may give sensory experience to consciousness, creating a bridge between substance and ineffability. Understanding that the “expanded field” is utterly blown apart, my work makes things that stay together, that find their own order in a condition of disorder, and that at the same time remain unsettled. This work uses diverse media, drawn from industrial materials and processes, sometimes incorporating photography and video, optics, robotics systems, installation and sound. I have been involved with set design, public image projections, and large scale public commissions in the Pacific Northwest. I have exhibited across Canada and internationally and currently teach at the Department of Visual Arts at the University of Victoria in western Canada.

    Just a Moment: Jeremy Borsos July 26 to August 24, 2019 Opening: Friday, July 26, 7 to 10pm Wednesday to Saturday, 12 to 5pm Deluge Contemporary Art 636 Yates Street, Victoria BC | deluge.ca Testing the unreliability of memory through the context of prosaic actions, Borsos has created a series of painted aluminum and plastic sculptures, each work titled by the year of the source material and a visual referent. “Even in our dream state, for better or worse, our hands are not necessarily idle. It may be the act of disregarding the detritus of life, or sitting in a fog while making miniature assemblages of available wastepaper.” It is our preoccupation with the importance of living, he says, that allows these muddled drifting acts to recall and transcend our past. Jeremy Borsos attended Emily Carr School of Art and the Art Students League in New York. His practice is multidisciplinary and includes writing, photography, installation, painting, and video. He has exhibited nationally and internationally. Together with his partner, Sus, the Borsos have developed a meta-historical use of salvaged architecture, constructing multiple dwellings and ancillary structures, most recently in the restoration of the Blue Cabin in North Vancouver. 1960: Honeyboy, silkscreen monoprint on polyethylene terephthalate and aluminum, 10" x 36" x 10.5”, 2019 1941: A home movie, of a man, cleaning car parts with steel wool, oil silkscreen on aluminum 15" x15" x12”, 2019

    JOSEPH PLASKETT: Still Life in a Hectic World Everyone is welcome. Please join us for our official opening reception Thursday, May 9th from 3 pm to 5 pm. Renaissance Lounge, The Union Club of British Columbia 805 Gordon Street, Victoria Dress code: Business Dress for Ladies and Gentleman For more information on the Club's dress code, please call 250-384-1151 Exhibition continues to July 2019 The still lifes of Joseph Plaskett always bring joy into a room and somehow quietens the hectic world beyond that room. And so we are delighted to fill the Club’s Renaissance Room with the joy of Plaskett’s iconic still lifes and tablescapes. Here is a table vacated after breakfast, the serviette laid purposefully, the café presse drained, the butter dish left uncovered. And here is a generous bowl of oranges, an hospitable pineapple, an amaryllis in vibrant red bud; and then we encounter the artist himself – a self portrait, looking directly at the viewer, but nestled into his own still life with antique surrounds and a vase of wispy flowers. Each time Plaskett documented the mundane, everyday life, he extended himself and somehow made the subject sing and made the objects significant. Joseph Plaskett: Remains of a Breakfast 1, 2005, oil on canvas, 28 x 36 inches Joseph Plaskett received a BA in history and a teaching certificate from the University of British Columbia in 1939. He went on to study with Jack Shadbolt and B.C. Binning at the Vancouver School of Art and with A.Y. Jackson at the Banff Summer School. In 1946 he was awarded the first Emily Carr Scholarship which he used to study at the California School of Fine Art, San Francisco. Canada’s most beloved painter later established his own foundation which continues to award similar scholarships to emerging artists. Known for his figurative and still life paintings, Plaskett has long been highly collectable. Prior to the artist’s death in 2014, he was still painting, exhibiting on two continents, and collecting awards including Officer of the Order of Canada and several honourary doctorates. Plaskett exhibited extensively in Canada as well as in London and Paris. His work is included in every major museum collection in Canada from Victoria to Charlottetown.

    My Soul is Escaped: Healing art of Patricia June Vickers at Christ Church Cathedral April 28 to May 11 One woman’s healing journey, expressed powerfully through her art, is the subject of the next exhibit to be held at Christ Church Cathedral’s Chapel of the New Jerusalem. Patricia June Vickers, an artist, psychotherapist and spiritual director, addresses the issue of sexual abuse and intergenerational trauma in her exhibit. Two years ago, Vickers underwent an intensive period of neurofeedback and psychotherapy to heal her dissociative amnesia, an involuntary response to trauma. As she restored her spiritual balance, she documented her journey in small paintings. There are more than 30 mixed media works in the show, pieces that use acrylic, watercolour and collage to create layers. These abstract images are coupled with written reflections on the artist’s healing process. “Life is a midden,” she said. “Truth can sometimes be underneath all these layers.” She began to paint out of an inability to find words to communicate the raw reality. “It came out of a need to express what I couldn’t say in words,” she said. She believes that continuing intergenerational and sexual trauma among First Nations, “is the root problem in our communities that we are still not facing.” Vickers, 63, is of British, Tsimshian, Heiltsuk and Haida First Nation ancestry and was raised in Hazelton and Victoria. She grew up with art all around her, learning traditional applique fabric designs and later, painting. Her brothers Arthur Vickers and Roy Henry Vickers are both well-known artists. Roy has partnered with her to create a potlatch screen that will be on display during the show. Having Christ Church Cathedral host the show is really significant, says Vickers, who always loved the words and music of the Anglican service. Christ Church Cathedral Dean Ansley Tucker said such an important exhibit creates valuable insights. “Long before we learned to speak, we learned to see,” she said. “In this exhibit we have the benefit of visceral visual images, as well as Patricia Vickers’s own words of reflection to guide and teach us. We are grateful for her courage and honesty.” Sunday, April 28, 5.30 pm. Opening reception (Chapel of the New Jerusalem) Sunday, May 5 at 3.00 pm, Connecting Hearts, artist talk on personal reconciliation. “People know the history. What isn’t being spoken about is our internal worlds and what connects our hearts,” she said. Hours: The show will be open to the public 10.00 am to 4.00 pm Monday to Saturday and 1.00 to 3.00 pm on Sunday. Patricia June Vickers is a counsellor and artist living in Vancouver. She is clinical director of mental health and wellness at the First Nations Health Authority and has a PhD. Christ Church Cathedral in Victoria stands on the traditional lands of the Songhees and Esquimalt First Nations. It is the episcopal seat of the Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of British Columbia, which includes Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands. The Cathedral also has a large and active parish community and contributes to the cultural, social and spiritual life of residents and visitors in the Capital Regional District. The gothic cathedral, one of Canada’s largest churches, was designed in 1896.
