THE READING NOOK | Narwhal Art Projects
Narwhal has its act together. Since 2008 the gallery has been exploring and highlighting where art and design meet. Their interest is in the overlap and the potential that brings. The gallery brings in an artist they’re interested in the development of and helps them gain exposure and leave a lasting legacy by placing works into collections and through its publications; from catalogs to artist multiplies.
This Friday is the opening reception for The Reading Nook, an exhibition emphasizing those artist multiples along with ‘zines and books made by the artists. It’s a name-heavy showing but highlights include a 40 colour 35 x 70 triptych print by Montréal screen printing duo Seripop, the high contract and intricate works of Alexandra McKenzie, and the graphical patterns of Ella Selbie. Curated by Alicia Nauta this exhibit promises lots of neon, ink and psychedelic collage.
