Cosmos: Gathie Falk, Margaret Nazon and Erik Olson

September 29, 2018 – January 6, 2019

From 6,000 year old cosmological cave drawings to Van Gogh’s Starry Night and beyond, awe-inspiring celestial views have forever transfixed the gaze of artists. Cosmos taps into this timeless fascination through a contemporary lens, offering up stellar works by three Canadian artists: Erik Olson, Gathie Falk and Margret Nazon, with commentary on select works by retired Canadian astronaut Robert Thirsk. Though their approaches to the subject matter vary, their common enchantment with the mysteries of the universe is a bond that ties them together not only with each other, but with anyone who has looked up at the night sky and pondered its endless questions and unfathomable depths.
