Angela Grauerholz. Privation (folded Book #43 front), 2001. Ink jet print (Giclée) on Arches paper.
Over the centuries, books have evolved in step with new resources and technologies. Today, as digital access to knowledge grows in popularity, the relevance of printed media is sometimes challenged. Unbound brings together photography, sculpture, prints and installation work by five contemporary Canadian artists as a means to expand perceptions of what a printed book can be, how it might look and its value in contemporary times.

Gary Pearson. Come Back Later, 2007. Oil on canvas.
Gary Pearson grew up in Prince George and is now based in Kelowna, BC. Excerpts from a Retrospective brings together a selection of paintings produced between 2007 and 2018. Pearson’s psychologically charged work is often anchored in the description of a fleeting moment. Within his paintings, a seemingly ordinary activity, expression, or a scene, also suggests deeper undercurrents of meaning. In this way, Pearson connects the moments he depicts to the larger world and familiar conditions of everyday life and human experience.
Until Spring 2019
Benny Zenga High Up Hut #3
Benny Zenga, a filmmaker based in Vancouver, began building High Up Huts to inspire wonder and curiosity. High Up Hut #3, at Two Rivers Gallery, is a hybrid design inspired by High Up Hut #1 (Belcarra) andHigh Up Hut #2 (Vancouver). Unlike its predecessors, this hut is located outdoors, high up on our Sculpture Court, rather than on a vacant pole or harbour piling. From the ground, one can catch glimpses of the hut: a sight that cannot help but invite imaginings and musings on its purpose and history. At its core, this work is about the importance of solitude and taking time away from the digital screens that saturate many of our day-to-day lives.
