NCECA Reception: Friday, March 29, 5 – 9 pm
Bonspiel is an exhibition of fourteen contemporary Canadian artists whose creative mission is to incorporate the theme of winter and/or winter sport into their works. From ice hockey to icicles and snowmobiles to snow bunnies, the vast conceptual tundra that encapsulates winter is the limit. Some of the artists will roll up their sculptural sleeves to tackle the task at hand, while others will put their functional tendencies to work.
A display of drinking vessels will also be part of the show; they will be wintery in theme and serve as a cheering section for the main event. Participating artists include: Amelia Butcher, Pattie Chalmers, Dawn Detarando, Carole Epp, Michael Flaherty, Christopher Reid Flock, Marney McDiarmid, Chris Pancoe, Mariko Paterson, Carly Slade, Martin Tagseth, and Andrew Tarrant.
