(body of work) Karin Jones’ MFA the­sis ex­hi­bi­tion sees a se­ries of ob­jects of adorn­ment ex­plore the ways “the his­tor­i­cal nar­ra­tive of slav­ery has shaped the iden­ti­ties of peo­ple of African de­scent liv­ing on North Amer­i­can soil,” the artist state­ment of­fers.

New Ma­te­ri­alisms The gallery de­scribes this sick show best: “Ex­plor­ing themes of con­sumer cul­ture, plas­tic, craftivism, ab­sur­dity and spec­ta­cle, Richard­son’s work fea­tures the rad­i­cal re-use of dis­carded plas­tic ma­te­ri­als to cre­ate a max­i­mal­ist, im­mer­sive en­vi­ron­ment.” To April 14

Struc­tures and Be­ing Struc­tured Lor­raine Al­bert’s show stud­ies the struc­tures that con­strain the in­sti­tu­tion of art. “The viewer may in­ter­pret this ma­te­ri­al­iza­tion on a spec­trum, from en­ter­tain­ing to con­fronta­tional, and these read­ings will change as more time is spent with the work and in the space,” her artist’s state­ment adds.

Tran­si­tions The Craig de­scribes this con­tem­po­rary tex­tile art show best: “Every life, every city, every hu­man in­ter­ac­tion un­der­goes change; com­bine this with na­ture’s chang­ing sea­sons and land­scapes and a plethora of tran­si­tional episodes oc­cur. With a com­bi­na­tion of fab­rics and threads, along with em­bel­lish­ments in lace, em­broi­dery floss, wool, and found items, in­clud­ing dye­ing, paint­ing, colour­ing or stamp­ing, the artists have hand-stitched or ma­chine quilted their in­ter­pre­ta­tion of the theme ‘Tran­si­tions.’” To Apr 29
