Cultivating Habit

Maureen Faulkner

Galleria opening reception: Thursday March 15, 7:30pm – 9:00pm

On January 1st, 2016, Prince George artist Maureen Faulkner committed to paint an artwork per day for the duration of the year. She determined the size of her paintings would increase by an inch in both height and length each month and that she would compose a piece of automatic writing to accompany each work. Faulkner shared her paintings digitally through her social media channels and invited followers of the project to mail her objects that she could feature in her paintings. This multidimensional body of work has been an exercise in commitment, daily reflection, and communication.

Canadian Visionary

Lawren Harris

A member of the Group of Seven, Lawren Stewart Harris (1885–1970) was one of the most important figures in the history of Canadian art. After settling in Vancouver in 1940, he was a central figure in the artistic life of British Columbia. Through both his life and work, Harris helped establish an identity for Canadian art and was a driving force in the development of modernist painting. This exhibition focuses on artwork from between 1906 and 1960 and includes artwork on paper, oil sketches and paintings.

Lawren Harris: Canadian Visionary is organized and circulated by the Vancouver Art Gallery with the generous support of the Killy Foundation and is curated by Ian M. Thom, Senior Curator-Historical, Vancouver Art Gallery.

April 13 to July 8, 2018

Kim Stewart: Indian Chief, 2017. Digital print on paper.

INJUN-uity, or Growing Up Pop

Kim Stewart

Métis artist Kim Stewart from Prince George explores stereotypes of Indigeneity and examines how representations of it in popular media influenced her own sense of self. Using a broad range of media including video, digital prints, beadwork and installation work, Stewart reconciles childhood stories and memories of play alongside pop cultural references of Indigenous culture. Her work considers the depth to which stereotypes can permeate ones identity and influence a sense of self.

July 20 to October 7, 2018

Robert Dyson. Pencils and soft canvas, 2017. Mixed media.


Robert Dyson

From Prince George, Robert Dyson is a sculptor and photographer who also works in the world of theatre, fabricating sets and props. His new work draws upon theatre-craft as he produces hybrids of painting and low relief sculpture that communicate pressure and tension. Elements within the frame, and at times the frames themselves, appear to be compressed or pulled apart using pulleys, clamps and other devices. Using trompe l’oeil and other effects, Dyson’s work appears to be heavily sprung and on the verge of letting go. 

July 20 to October 7, 2018

Dan Brault. Bonfire!, 2017. Acrylic and oil on canvas.

Atomic Love

Dan Brault

Québec City painter, Dan Brault, is a self-professed cynic. Rather than kick at a withering raft of global concerns, in his paintings, however, Brault ejects them entirely from his work. Issues like climate change and environmental decline, are more than simply absent in his paintings. He carefully composes his work to counter the anxiety and malcontent these and other concerns cause. Using a range of painting techniques and media he fashions paintings that, while auto-biographical, draw from common experiences in the world around him. Fishing, camping and video games are among the subject matter that Brault tackles lending his work a wide-ranging resonance as he creates paintings that are uplifting antidotes to these troubled times.

October 19 to January 6, 2019

Contingency Plan, 017. Artifacts (from Sinclair Meatpacking Plant), Plexiglas, glass, grow-lights, sulfuric acid, hydrochloric acid, copper sulfate, water samples (Cedar River), ventilation unit.

Prototypes for the Preservation of Degradation

Colin Lyons

Colin Lyons lives in Binghamton, New York. His work exists at the intersection of art, history and science. His subject matter has often focused on historic sites, defunct sawmills, factories, and mine tailing sites whose histories he commemorates through the use of materials discovered on those sites. He commandeers behind-the-scenes processes utilized by printmakers, such as chemical etching, incorporating those processes into installation components often in such a way that transforms the artefacts he recovers. This exhibition will survey a number of recent series examining Lyons' inventive engagement with printmaking. It will touch on themes of preservation in an age of planned obsolescence and resource depletion, and reflect on issues around geo-engineering and urban renewal.

October 19 to January 6, 2019

B.C Binning. Playground on Bowen Island, nd. Ink on paper. Gift of the estate of Jessie Isobel Binning.

Artwork from the Permanent Collection

Two Rivers Gallery Permanent Collection started in 1985 and has grown to include more then 400 artworks, many of them donated by artists and art collectors. Every year we exhibit work from the collection, giving us the opportunity to share some of our new acquisitions as well as revisit some familiar older work. Much of the work in the collection stems from past exhibitions and so regular visitors may find familiar work though often in a different context. Sculpture, painting on paper and canvas, photography and prints are represented in the collection with a focus on contemporary artwork from Western Canada.
