Prototypes for the Preservation of Degradation

Colin Lyons

Colin Lyons lives in Binghamton, New York. His work exists at the intersection of art, history and science. His subject matter has often focused on historic sites, defunct sawmills, factories, and mine tailing sites whose histories he commemorates through the use of materials discovered on those sites. He commandeers behind-the-scenes processes utilized by printmakers, such as chemical etching, incorporating those processes into installation components often in such a way that transforms the artefacts he recovers. This exhibition will survey a number of recent series examining Lyons' inventive engagement with printmaking. It will touch on themes of preservation in an age of planned obsolescence and resource depletion, and reflect on issues around geo-engineering and urban renewal.

Opening Night Thursday October 18: 7:30pm Artist Talk and Reception with Colin Lyons.

An Ephemeral Land: Artwork from the Permanent Collection.

Two Rivers Gallery Permanent Collection started in 1985 and has grown to include more then 400 artworks, many of them donated by artists and art collectors. Every year we exhibit work from the collection, giving us the opportunity to share some of our new acquisitions as well as revisit some familiar older work. Much of the work in the collection stems from past exhibitions and so regular visitors may find familiar work though often in a different context. Sculpture, painting on paper and canvas, photography and prints are represented in the collection with a focus on contemporary artwork from Western Canada.

Benny Zenga High Up Hut #3

High Up Hut #3

Benny Zenga

Benny Zenga’s High Up Huts emerged from a realization that upon waking in the morning he would immediately turn to his cellphone. As a remedy to this situation, Zenga began a ritual of getting out of bed and going for a walk. It was during these walks that he was inspired to build his first High Up Hut out of branches that had fallen from trees after a storm. Since then, Zenga’s life-size High Up Huts have emerged in places such as Vancouver and Belcarra, British Columbia. These whimsical structures inspire curiosity and speak to the importance of solitude and taking time away from the digital screens that saturate many of our day-to-day lives.
