Gallery FUKAI is pleased to announce ALL THE ROTTEN EGGS IN ONE BASKET.
Join us on Friday February 1 from 8:00 pm onwards for the opening reception. Artists will be in attendance.
New work by Alex Heilbron, Jenny G, and Marie Horstead, on view from February 1st until March 02, 2013. All three artists share a similar approach to producing work by trial and error with an earnest enthusiasm for material and colour. By breaking free from the confines of their own private space, the paintings, drawings, and fibre works are brought together like an unfolding of messages in several bottles. All coming from different points of origin yet if by chance finding their way to the same destination.
Gallery Fukai is located at 602 East Hastings Street at Princess. Scheduled walk-in days are Saturday February 9th and 23rd from 1:00-4:00pm, and Saturday February 2nd, 16th & March 2nd from 12:00-6:00pm. Also open by appointment – please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Jenny G has lived and worked in Montreal, San Francisco, and Vancouver. She is the 2012 recipient of the John Hartigan Memorial Scholarship for Painters and will be an artist-in-residence at the Vermont Studio Center this Summer. Upcoming exhibitions include a group show at Gallery 295 in Vancouver.
Marie Horstead is a Fibre artist currently living and working in Vancouver B.C. She studied textiles at Capilano University and completed her BFA at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec. Her interest lies in feminist histories and female experiences and sees her use of fabric and surface manipulation as an explicitly feminist action. Marie is a Masters of Fine Arts student at the University of British Columbia.
Alex Heilbron is an artist living and working in Vancouver. She graduated from the San Francisco Art Institute with a bachelor of fine arts degree in painting in 2009. Though primarily a painter, she also works in other mediums. Her bright, playful work is influenced by Modernist painters, cartoons and trash heaps. In 2011 Alex completed a Post-Baccalaureate program at the Pont Aven School of Contemporary Art in France and helped open two artist run spaces in Vancouver’s East side: 824 Hawks Rowhouse Gallery and Franklin St. Studio. In 2012 she published two collections of drawings; Strawberry with Oso Press, a Los Angeles based publisher, and a book called Bed with Museums Press, Glasgow, which coincided with an exhibition in their sister-space, Good Press Gallery.
