Here is a small preview of ECO BALANCE an exhibit of acrylic paintings by ROBERT GAME at FERNEYHOUGH CONTEMPORARY in North Bay opening this weekend.
OPENING MARCH 4TH at FERNEYHOUGH CONTEMPORARY in NORTH BAY
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.

BUILD THE IMAGE WITH PROCESS NOV 12th at the Japanese Paper Place
Eleven very focused artists and myself spent Saturday in heaven working on image making techniques using washi. The workshop was held in the ware house area of JPP where we were surrounded by all kinds of hand made Japanese paper. Thanks to the Japanese Paper Place for providing beautiful samples for us to use: Uwa Senka Long, Tosa Usushi, and Gampi Silk Tissue.
Here is a link to further workshops at JPP.
The day was a little overcast and threatened to rain but visitors were undeterred. Joan’s tasty hors d’oeuvres and the fireplace going allowed everyone to forget the weather, have a good look around and chat. I had a chance to meet old friends and acquaintances one of whom I had not seen for years. I was peppered with questions and happy to answer such a receptive audience ! Below are photos giving a sense of the gallery so graceful and inviting, thanks to Joan.
The exhibit is open to November 16th. Gallery hours are Tues to Sat., 11 to 5pm or by appt.

Well I am down to the final few days before my show and looking forward to the drive north: to see the fall colours on the way and spend a weekend in North Bay on the shores of Lake Nipissing. A word from Joan Ferneyhough the gallery director:
If you may be in the area see:
Beyond her new book “BIRDSONG AFTER THE STORM” Margi has been busy writing many articles on the state of wildlife and indigenous peoples around the world amidst the forces of politics, global corporations, global economics…

I am inspired by the project Gord Downie has launched …especially the graphic novel SECRET PATH…maybe you will have a look too.
