Fort Gallery celebrates Canada 150 with ic(o!)nic Canada

Show runs July 20 to Aug. 6

For the Fort Gallery’s third annual juried exhibition, artists have created pieces that are quintessentially Canadian.

ic(o!)nic Canada, running July 20 to Aug. 6, features contemporary visions of our national identity, from cultural influences by both First Nations and immigrants to the country’s vast geography.

Jurors reviewed 46 pieces exploring this theme; 21 artworks were selected.

The included artists are: Susan Baranszky-Job, Shawn Becker, Bennett Brown, Ranu Chakraborty, Victoria General, Yuri Grier, Sussanne Hoiberg, Terri-Lee Horvath, Kimberley Howie, Susan Jessop, Megan Krause, Marguerite McIntosh, Les McKinnon, Meghan Spence, Jim Unger, Rosemary Wallace and Jetta Williams.

The public is invited to the opening reception, which will be held in conjunction with the gallery’s August “First Thursday” community arts event on Thursday, Aug. 3 from 7 to 9 p.m.
