Big Alberta Sky – Pictures of Home

This exhibition of photography curated by Calgary artist Wendi Jenkins, presents the work of 3 locally based photographers representing a wide spectrum of photographic practice. Bradford Uphill, who holds a BFA from the Alberta College of Art and Design, approaches the medium from a largely conceptual standpoint. Todd Korol has worked in advertising for a diverse clientele, with his work appearing in many national and international publications from Time and MacLean’s to National Geographic and Saturday Night Magazine. Mike Drew’s career has roots in journalism – he is currently a columnist and photographer with the Calgary Sun.

In this show, these artists explore notions of home as located in the landscape and country life of this province. Drew and Korol present iconic and distorted views of the hero of the modern west – the cowboy, while Uphill extends and fragments the rural landscape. These diverse “pictures of home” encourage the viewer to consider the photographer as the true lens of the camera.

“Pieces of a Picture”
By Ryan Hamilton and Tanya Mastrobuono
Untitled Arts Society +15 Window
225 – 8th Ave. SE (West end of Performing Arts Centre corridors, 2nd Floor)
On view from December 1st, 2001 to January 31st, 2002

This collaborative show presents a whimsical series of collages by Ryan Hamilton and Tanya Mastrobuono, the former a University of Calgary Fine Arts graduate, and the latter, soon to be. Random, discarded, leftover puzzle pieces are the key constituents of these light-hearted mixed media works. From this starting point these artists looked for surprising and unexpected ways to take the familiar and remake it as something new. Imaginary landscapes and flights of fancy result, as these recombinant puzzles show traces of their process of exploration, and the marks of the artists’ hands.

The artists will be in attendance at the opening reception. All are welcome. For more information please contact the artists @ 340-3970 (Tanya) or 289-6743 (Ryan) or Untitled @ 262-7911 (leave a message).
