Season Creep

May 17th to June 14th, 2012

Opening Reception: Thursday, May 17th, 5 – 7 PM

AGO Art Rental + Sales Gallery, 481 University Ave.

The oddly sounding Season Creep refers to the noted shifts in the timing of seasons. Particularly, the term is used when describing an early spring, suggesting that the warm weather, green grass and blossoming flowers creep up slightly each year. This May, The AR+SG will present an exhibit of paintings and photographs that were selected in considering the meaning of the term Season Creep, which at once connotes the welcoming early warm weather and the negative environmental impact of such changes. Expect to see acid green colour palettes, rainy text-based photographs, and works representing death and rebirth with beautiful, unusual and, at times, playful results.

Exhibiting artists include:

Tamara Bahry Paterson

Nicholas and Sheila Pye

Brendan George Ko

Fausta Facciponte

V. Tony Hauser

Leigh Bridges
