Download a copy of the Summer Exhibitions booklet.

This exhibition features conceptual works that reflect artist Gail Bourgeois’ engagement with the Firestone Collection of Canadian Art. Drawings that depict overlapping lines and nodes, done in ink wash, wax crayon, graphite and watercolour, are installed to correspond with objects cast from consumer packaging, demonstrating the scope of the artist’s creative process. The works are simultaneously organic and architectural, delicate and bold, and reveal Bourgeois’ sophisticated understanding of composition.
