Imaginarium exhibition and catalogue fundraiser
What happens when six artists are given free reign of the walls of an art gallery? Imaginarium – a place devoted to the imagination is a collaborative painting Residency and Exhibition now open at Oxygen Art Centre. The walls of the gallery space burst with colour and imagery created by six emerging Kootenay artists; Amber Santos, Sergio Santos, Chelsey Freyta, Coleman Webb, Bryn Stevenson, and Tanya Pixie Johnson. Imaginarium begins in the gallery but moves the conversation to the street as sections of the exhibit are posted outside and then brought back into the gallery again in the form of photographs in situ.
Painted panels from the gallery wall composition and limited edition prints will be available to purchase during the exhibition. Money raised will go towards the production of a catalogue of the project, to be treasured long after the gallery walls have been painted over. “Exhibition catalogues are very important for emerging artists,” says Ian Johnson who is Chair of Oxygen Art Centre’s exhibition selection committee, “as support material catalogues can be of great assistance in getting future exhibitions and project funding.” Donations are also being accepted and Charitable tax receipts will be issued for amounts $20 and over. Donations over $50 receive a catalogue too!
