Adrian Cox: Shaping the Garden

The Scenic Painters 48" x 60" oil on canvas
Jan 8 thru Feb 10, 2016

Friday, Jan 8, 2016

5:30 to 7:30 pm


In his exhibition Shaping the Garden, Adrian Cox presents a selection of recent work that centers around a cast of monstrous figures named the Border Creatures. The hybrid anatomy of these characters, with their implied role as caretakers of the land, suggests a symbiotic connection to their environment. As the relationship among these strange protagonists and their lush landscape home unfolds, the artist questions the distinct categories of the Beautiful, the Ugly, and the Natural.

Foundry Art Centre: Friday, 11 December 2015

The Foundry Art Centre will host an Opening Reception and Juror’s Gallery Talk for the opening of their newest exhibition, Context,.Friday, December 11, 2015 from 6:00 until 8:00 pm in the Foundry Art Centre’s Grand Hall. Buzz Spector will give a Juror’s Talk in the Main Galleries from 5:30 until 6:00 pm. The reception is free and open to the public, and complimentary refreshments will be served. The Foundry Art Centre artists will also be in studio during the reception.

The power of words cannot be overstated. When these words are written and recorded, they carry even more weight. What then, can be the effect of combining written language with visual language? This exhibition asked the artist - What happens at the intersection of the visual arts and the literal arts? The combination of these expressions is utilized in the work of these artists by focusing on text, whether it is used boldly, subtly, texturally, literally, or just as inspiration.

Context includes artwork in all media, and showcases the work of over 50 artists from across the US and Canada. 

Hours are Tuesday through Thursday 10 am to 8 pm, Friday and Saturday 10 am to 5 pm, and Sunday noon to 4 pm.  Admission is free, and donations are welcome.
