JUNE 14, 2014 2pm – 4pm Access Gallery | 222 East Georgia Street FREE | No registration required
Draw No Conclusions is held in conjunction with Break the Legs of What I Want To Happen, an exhibition exploring the possibilities of failure, collaboratively curated by the students of Emily Carr University’s AHIS 401 Topics in Curatorial Projects seminar under the instruction of Access Director/Curator Kimberly Phillips. Held in Access’ gallery space, Draw No Conclusions offers participants the opportunity to experiment freely with mark making while exhibiting artists Lexie Owen and Sarah and Rachel Seburn speak informally about the often unconventional ways that drawing figures in their own practices.
Participants of all ages and experience are welcome.
Lexie Owen is a multi-disciplinary artist currently based in Vancouver. She holds a BFA from Emily Carr University of Art + Design, as well as a Diploma in Jewellery and Small Object Design from Kootenay School of the Arts. Owen’s practice is interdisciplinary, often taking the physical form of crafted objects in both traditional and non-traditional mediums or the ephemeral form of gestures and actions, interactive installations, or collaborative societies.
Rachel and Sarah Seburn began their collaborative practice eight years ago, airbrushing murals and sculpting props. Over the years these projects have consisted largely of painting on site murals in buildings under construction. The experiences have informed their practices and inspired the concepts surrounding their work. Both independently and collectively we have been dealing with ideas of permanency and impermanency.
Established in 1991, Access Gallery is an artist-run centre located in historic Chinatown. The organization is a platform for emergent and experimental art practices. We enable critical conversations, risk taking, and new configurations of audience, artists and community.
