LITTLE FRIENDS OF EVANS CONTEMPORARY & WORKS FROM THE COLLECTION
FEBRUARY 7 - MARCH 20, 2014
OPENING RECEPTION: FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 2014 5 - 10 pm
Evans Contemporary is pleased to present Magic Window, an exhibition featuring artwork produced by the little friends who frequent our gallery. With a fascinating display of inspirational and imaginative visions, work by these young artists will be hung alongside a selection of the gallery's eclectic contemporary collection. Effortlessly, a box becomes a mouse, a sock develops into a curious creature, and multi-colored fireworks explode in front of our eyes. Soft sculptures, found images, drawings, prints and paintings, provide an overview of the diverse work from our little friends, internationally recognized artists, emerging practitioners, and unknown creators. Artists featured from the collection include: Marcel Dzama, Mary Kim, Seth Scriver, Ed Pien, Robert Malinowski and Eric Hongisto, among others.
Evans Contemporary is dedicated to the presentation of creative projects by national and international contemporary artists. Located in Peterborough, Ontario, the privately owned and funded gallery exhibits work by emerging, established, and unknown artists of all ages, as well as work from the gallery's private collection. Situated on the ground floor of a 1907 Edwardian house, the gallery's aim is to launch unique exhibitions in an intimate, salon style setting and allow artists to present new works and projects that transcend the trends of the commercial visual art market.
