Robert and I had arrived the day before with the paintings. We unpacked them to help Joan start arranging them in the gallery. Having had a good visit it was soon time to leave and let Joan finish installing which she does so well. Saturday we arrived to see how great everything looked and hopful that visitors would not be deterred by the minus 24 degree weather. They were not. I took photos in between conversations with new and old acquaintances and friends. Here are a few more pictures from the exhibit. The cold has lifted so drop by if you are in the area. Ferneyhough Contemporary is usually open Tuesdays to Saturdays 11am to 5pm or by appointment.

Since 2007 Robert Game has been developing series paintings that reflect his concern for and draw our attention to the intersection of our natural and constructed worlds. Drawing on experiences from his travels throughout rural and urban Ontario, Game uses a range of symbols to convey the precarious balance between ecology and culture. In the paintings “forests,” “rock walls” and “land” serve as counterpoints to “architectural elements” and “planning devices.”
Most recently, two new series of paintings have emerged: eco platform, a raised level surface to view the base and structure and eco analytic, the branch of logic dealing with analysis. Selected works from the new series make up eco balance. The exhibition runs from March 4 – 29.
Robert Game holds a BFA from the University of Alberta. He has exhibited nationally and internationally since 1975. Robert’s work can be found in many public and corporate collections.
RECEPTION: Saturday, March 4, 2017, 2 – 4 pm. The artist will be present. We hope you’ll join us.
