Lou Lynn - 'Out of the Ordinary'
Opening Reception: Friday, June 3, 7-9pm
Artist talk: Thursday, June 23, 7pm
Lou Lynn’s credentials are extensive: she is an alumnus of the Pilchuck Glass School (founded by Dale Chihuly, et al.) she has twice been nominated for the Governor General’s Award in Visual and Media Arts (Saidye Bronfman Award), in 2010 she was inducted into the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts (RCA), and she has exhibited nationally and internationally since 1986. The most recent evidence of this legacy - Out of the Ordinary – combines the variables of a practice which has consistently raised the bar by bringing disparate and symbolic elements into unexpected symbioses.
“Out of the Ordinary” examines everyday household objects and questions our relationship to them. It reinterprets the common, the mundane - buttons, fasteners and kitchen utensils - into exaggerated objects of questionable usage.
