August 21 to September 22, 1990
Picturing Forestry is a highly significant and timely exhibition and conceived by the gallery’s former director/curator, Denise Panchysyn, and generously sponsored by Northwood Pulp and Timber Ltd. The artists have explored the many facets of our relationship with our forest environment using both two and three dimensional means. The works range from the conventional forms of drawing and painting, through photography, uses of found objects to works produced from raw and manufactured products of forestry.
These works represent: the manner in which the surrounding forests have sustained the region and encouraged growth; the historical significance and economic impact of the industry; the production of forest products as they relate to our daily existence; general and personal attitudes towards forestry, the role of forestry internationally as it relates to the region; and the social and cultural effects of the industry and forestry and the environment.
