INFO     CONSIGNED WORK     ARTISTS                    

November 16- January 5
Group Exhibition

“Small Formats” presents collectable artwork by mid and late-career contemporary artists, in a diverse range of mediums and technical styles. The exhibited works share two common traits: they are accessibly priced and sized no larger than 20 X 20 inches.

“Small Formats” features etchings, paintings, illustrations, collage, and mixed media work. Beyond the differences in medium, the artworks fall under a wide array of stylistic and thematic variations - from Carl Haywood’s vivid and complex silkscreen prints to Paul Rossi’s minimalist black and white linocuts.

Solo Exhibition

Gabriel Rioux is an emerging artist based in Montreal, Canada. His mixed media paintings are heavily influenced by an academic background in literature and philosophy, as well as the artist's observations of every day life.

Through his paintings, Rioux is building a visual language of symbolism that fluctuates between obscurity, abstraction and revelation.

"Emerging Quebec painter Gabriel Rioux defies our perception of time, space and the constraints of inner knowledge. His harmonious, yet visually tense paintings offer us a meticulously codified window into the artist’s imagination and subconscious mind. Rioux’s intuitive works, full of symbolism, present an almost canonical composition of spaces delineated by a neat line and a subtle change of shade. “

Solo Exhibition

Archive Contemporary presents a comprehensive solo exhibition of Beaver Sheppard’s artistic canon, for the first time featuring the multifaceted artist’s paintings, illustrations, and musical work in tandem.

As a self taught artist, Sheppard’s process is intentionally intuitive; rejecting the overtly conceptual or the overly figurative in favor of an intensely visual spontaneity. The resulting effect is what Sheppard describes as “anti-image. Destructive. Primal.”
