Thursday, November 15, 2018 — 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM EST
Artists Katie Bethune-Leamen and Catherine Telford-Keogh will discuss their work in a walk-through tour of their exhibitions currently on view at the University of Waterloo Art Gallery (UWAG) on Thursday November 15 from 7:00-9:00 pm.
Katie Bethune-Leamen works in sculpture, installation, and video, toward consideration of the nature of objects, our relationships with them, and our relationships with each other as mediated through objects. She is interested in the inchoate and the abstract—amorphous things subsisting in an in-between state—as location for engagement and possibility for meanings. She is a 2015 recipient of a Ontario Arts Council Chalmers Fellowship Grant to research sculptural abstraction through travel in Japan, Germany, Italy & the USA.
She received her BFA from Concordia University, and her MFA from the University of Guelph. Her exhibition, Orchid mantis. Tom Selleck. Hats. (Gold-hatted, high-bouncing lover.) Also hats., is in UWAG Gallery One until December 15, 2018.
Waterloo Fine Arts Alumna Catherine Telford-Keogh (BA 2008) is currently based in Toronto. She has earned her MFA in Sculpture from Yale (2011), and a MA in Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies from Yale (2013).
Her work examines the visual and material language of objects and their relationship to the body through sculpture and video. Her exhibition Dental Dam is in UWAG Gallery Two until December 15, 2018.
