Solo exhibition by Patrick Mahon
SNAP invites members and guests to Lifeboats, an exhibition by Canadian Artist Patrick Mahon. In this exhibition, Mahon presents a series of work, which includes wall-mounted sculptures and silkscreen prints that channel historic and modern shipwrecks. Using wood slats with printed motifs, the wall-mounted sculptures can be interpreted as eerie remnants of the past, decayed and lost to the sea, or casualties of the world’s changing climate. Mahon’s work connects humans with the effects of shifting social and environmental conditions.
Patrick Mahon’s work has been exhibited widely across Canada, as well as abroad in the United States, China and France. He has collaborated with many artists and has had residencies in New York, Belgium, France as well at the Banff Centre, and in Niagara Falls. Currently he is a faculty member of Visual Arts at Western University in London, Ontario.
Opening Reception: October 24, 7-9 pm.
SNAP is a public gallery so admission to our exhibitions is always free!
