Persona Volare: EXPO
Following on our adventures in the woods of south central Ontario at the Tree Museum in 2007, Persona Volare turns to an expedition into the collection vaults of the Tom Thomson Art Gallery. Located in Owen Sound, this gallery's collection contains everything from small wild landscapes to extravagant still life paintings to an expanding collection of photographic and photo-based works by cross-generational Canadian artists.
Director and Curator Stuart Reid invited Persona Volare to respond to the gallery's extensive and eclectic collection with an exhibition that responds, dialogues, converses, and argues with those chosen works. Dedicated treasure hunters that we are, Persona Volare responded to the collection as a site to be excavated. The show will include those works from the collection, Persona Volare's new works, plus other surprises.
Persona Volare: EXPO opens on Friday May 1st, at 7:00 p.m. and continues through to June 21st, 2009.
