Two Rivers Gallery - Prince George, BC

The Two Rivers Gallery 10th Anniversary 10x10x10 exhibition runs from July 2nd to August 30th 2010 in the Rustad Galleria.

Many of the artists have donated their artworks to Two Rivers Gallery and their art is included in our ongoing silent auction. Thank you to the exhibiting artists for your contribution to the first decade of art at Two Rivers Gallery and thank you to our community for your support.

It is hard to imagine that ten years ago we had just moved from the old Prince George Art Gallery into a brand new purpose built gallery, Two Rivers Gallery of Prince George and Region. With this building came an opportunity to realize our exhibition goals, expand our public programs and bring the best of contemporary Canadian art to the people of northern British Columbia. This summer marks the tenth anniversary of Two Rivers Gallery and we are celebrating with an "alumni" exhibition in the Rustad Galleria, July 2 to August 30, 2010.

10x10x10 is an exhibition and a reunion at the same time. Over 45 artists, who have exhibited in main gallery solo or small group shows over our first ten years, have contributed to the occasion. Each artist has responded to the challenge to create a 10"x10" work of art and the results serve as reminders of exhibitions past and as current explorations from old friends.

You can bid online using our Silent Auction Bid form. All bids are accepted subject to the Silent Auction Conditions of Sale.

Inside Out - AGNS Yarmouth

Inside Out

Inside Out features the work of contemporary artists whose artmaking is informed by vernacular constructs, in terms of material choices and strategies of production and with respect to the subject matter and imagery put forth.

While the artists' practices are well-situated within the framework of contemporary art discourse, the do-it-yourself ethos and/or folk-inspired sensibilities within their work provides a fresh take on such dichotomies as insider and outsider, past and present, high art and low culture. Their practices, in turn, engage an interesting space where the language of the art world meets a more common one, that of the everyday and its people.

Included are works by artists Mario Doucette, Brian Jungen, Annie Pootoogook, Nancy Edell, David Askevold, and Gerald Ferguson.

The Western Branch of the AGNS is located in the former Royal Bank building at 341 Main Street, Yarmouth NS.
