This is an opportunity to see the artwork of two generations with a strong artistic background exhibited in a intimate setting.

Miguel Angel paints primarily on canvas but on this occasion includes a rare collection of prints and drawings. His artwork captures the essence and lighting of realistic landscapes.

Katalina’s use of textile techniques such as embroidery and appliqué invoke deep associations with the body. Her artistic endeavours explore themes closely related to the nature of physical identity and our connection to the natural world.

The Gallery Bistro is located in the old section of Port Moody – in a funky heritage area of town – and is known for great music and scrumptious food as well as some fine artistic endeavours.

No Toxic Factor

This was a re-encounter of the artists who attended the summer 2011 artists’ residency at the School of Visual Arts. As the event page describes:

No Toxic Factor explores the creative and energetic potentiality born of the masses… [It] seeks to examine the mass hysteria that can arise amongst highly energized, closely situated individuals.

This exhibition points to the ambiguity of mass hysteria, suggesting that the line between laughter and psychosis, joy and mania, the rational and the senseless, are innately blurred. Recognizing the destructive forces that lie dormant within all groups, we instead choose to celebrate creativity, community and collaboration.
