July 17 to 30, 2008
The Vancouver Island-based painter and sculptor Ice Bear will open a show July 17 to 30 at the Community Arts Council of Greater Victoria. Originally from the Georgian Bay area of Ontario, Ice Bear (aka Chris Johnson) is known on the West Coast for his large-scale public sculptures and murals…Toronto-based abstract painter Jordan Broadworth will be featured at Calgary’s Newzones Gallery May 10 to June 28. A finalist in the RBC Painting Competition in 2002, Broadworth’s canvases, awash in large gestural strokes and squeegee drips, are described by the gallery as “as much about the physicality of painting as the act of painting itself.”
