OAKVILLE GALLERIES HOST THE WORK OF 18 CANADIAN ARTISTS
Story by Odessa Paloma Parker
Road trips are definitely one of the simple pleasures of summer, and if you can incorporate a little culture into your getaway, all the better.
Just a brief drive outside Toronto will lead you to the gorgeous Oakville Galleries. Comprised of two proximate gallery locations, the spaces will play home to Freedom of Assembly, an exhibit featuring 18 Canadian artists and their recent works in the form of collage. Exhibiting artists include Marcel Dzama, Jacob Whibley, Georgia Dickie, Barbara Astman and more, and the show was curated by Marnie Fleming and Matthew Hyland.
With pieces ranging from “traditional” collage works done in the cut-and-paste style, to sculptural and digital manifestations, the collaborative nature of the collage is explored by some of the country’s finest artists who have taken up “collage as a strategy, rather than merely a medium”.
