Biennial 15

November 3rd - December 3rd, 2022
David Baumflek, Poor Relations, ceramic, 2002

Biennial 15 marks 30 years of Dawson Fine Arts Faculty members exhibiting their current art works at the Warren G. Flowers Art Gallery. It continues this long tradition of investigating the relationship between art making and learning, as well as reflects on the history of the biennial.

All faculty—past and present—of the Fine Arts department will have images and texts in the catalogue which accompanies the exhibition. There will also be a sound component containing faculty’s responses to the question of how the biennial has played a role in the pedagogical innovations of Dawson’s reputed Fine Arts Department.


Vernissage: Thursday, November 3rd, 2022 at 5:30pm


Pareidola: Dawson College Professional Photography

December 8th - 15th, 2022
Lem Campbell

Pareidolia is the ability to see or make pictures out of randomness. Seeing beyond what the average person sees and expressing that vision in an image is a large part of training to be a photographer. This collection of work by Dawson’s third-year photography students embodies how they see people, places or objects in their world.

Twenty two students are showing their work, including: Ayah Alatrash, Yisségnon-Chris Avosse, Sophie Becquet, Samuel Bermudez Fernandez, Lemuel Campbell, Mark Cedeno Moreno, Emma Cloghesy, Emma Diz-Giguère, Jilliane Flores, Jade Franco-Ehrmann, Alexe Grignard, Elizabeth Huppé, Sandra Kucko, Desireen Layne, Bramanda Mahaputra, Nour Naggar-Osama, Maya Naidu, Thibault Quach, Damon Roloff, Bianca Tedeschi, Mateo Vega Cantu, Daphné Voisine.


Vernissage: Thursday, December 8th, 2022 at 6:00pm

Daniel Oxley – Dark Wood

August 17th - September 9th, 2016

Excerpt from catalogue, by Cameron Skene

“If you’re going through hell, keep going” – Winston Churchill

[…]

The state of spiritual suspension is reinforced by Oxley’s recent work: vessels hung from the top of the picture plane, combined with a surface reassembled from disparate painterly strategies, marks, textures and forms. Caves and outcroppings, for instance, become a formal device as well as supporting metaphors for this place of pause.

Cleave, a path in the wilderness by Penelope Stewart

February 18th - March 12th, 2016

Responsiveness to space and an engagement with its architecture, history and ideologies is central to my practice. Recently, these interventions have explored the beehive metaphor in architecture, with connections between the symbolic, political and artistic spin-offs of the beehive. An eco-morphology contemplates the hive, hive culture, desire and loss as metaphor for our utopian aspirations to return to the garden.

Correspondences: Yechel Gagnon and Alexandre Masino

January 7th - February 6th, 2016

Correspondences, by Yechel Gagnon and Alexandre Masino, confronts us with the twofold challenge of seeing both distances and proximities between the works of each artist. While skeptics may be surprised at this particular pairing of artists, they will likely be even more surprised, as well as confounded, by the experience that awaits them: they will be gently struck by the wealth and depth of the dialogues that take shape between two bodies of work that, on the surface, have so little in common.
