Unveiling of Street Sculpture outside Gage Gallery, Dec. 3, 11 am. Kick-Off name the Artwork Contest: Win a piece of driftwood art! The Gage Gallery Arts Collective’s newest “member” will take up residence on the sidewalk of Oak Bay Avenue - adding to Oak Bay’s growing reputation as an art destination. Stickman, his working title for now, is a creation of local driftwood sculptor and Gage member, Tanya Bub. “Looking into the Gallery window Stickman represents the person engaging with art. What he sees triggers a powerful response, shown by the explosion of colour inside of him,” says Bub. At the same time, Stickman is himself a piece of art that invites passersby to engage, creating the possibility for small changes to occur inside of those who take the time. Stickman is born of the Gallery’s motto, “Engaging with Communities.” He invites touch, close-up investigation, and photographing. “Our purpose is to get people to stop and start a dialogue - with art, with themselves, with each other,” Bub explains. For starters, he needs a name, and the Gallery is holding a naming contest. To enter, send your suggestion to firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out a ballot at Gage Gallery from December 3 to 22. A jury of Gage-artists will select the winner who will be rewarded with an original piece of driftwood art by Tanya Bub ($100 value)! Please visit www.gagegallery.ca for more information. You can see Bub’s sculptures, as well as new paintings by five member artists at the Gage Gallery’s new group show “Solstice Dreams - The Poetry of Winter” running December 10 to 22. Come meet the artist at the Opening Reception on Thursday, December 12 from 6-9 p.m.! Unveiling Event Please join us for the unveiling of Oak Bay’s newest street art. When: Tuesday, Dec. 3 at 11 a.m. Where: Gage Gallery, 2031 Oak Bay Avenue The artist will be available for photos and questions.

untilDoing Things ‘n Stuff: An accumulation of actions, relics, recent work, and more from John G. Boehme Open Space presents Doing Things ‘n Stuff: An accumulation of actions, relics, recent work, and more from John G. Boehme. Opening on September 13 with a reception on September 20, the month-long exhibition will highlight the international practice of Victoria-based performance artist John G. Boehme and cast a light on the vibrant performance art community within the city.Over the past twenty-five years Boehme has created a body of work that explores his own physicality in relation to materials and processes. Often situating his work in critical response to current issues and concerns of contemporary performance art, Boehme works with sculpture, video, and live action, at times simultaneously, integrating materials, media, and processes into installations and time-based events.For Boehme, “physical involvement is the most thorough and embodied way in which to create meaning.” In his durational works, “both the artist and the audience become privy to knowledge available only through this kind of commitment.”Boehme is an undeniable presence in the Victoria performance art community, and the Open Space exhibition will offer the opportunity for the public to witness a series of past and current works, including installations, sculptures, videos, and printed matter. Exhibition: September 13-October 12, Tues-Sat, 12-5pmOpening reception: Friday, September 20, 7-9pmPerformance: Thursday, October 10, 7:00pm See www.openspace.ca
