SNAP is pleased to invite members and guests for the opening receptions of Faire des doubles – The surety of more-than-one by Michelle LaSalle and Pattern of Place by Elise Futoransky on Saturday, May 6 from 7-9PM.

Admission is free and by drop in. Dates for the respective artist talks TBA.

Faire des doubles – The surety of more-than-one by Michelle LaSalle reflects on the slippery moments that link personal memories to the objects and images we archive. These works arise out of an intuitive investigation into the stories our collections might tell. They are a tribute to the passage of time and the traces it leaves on our objects and ourselves. The process was an unearthing of memories and their objects, objects and their memories, as ritual and artistic practice—opening a long-sealed box, developing an unknown roll of film, remembering details, attempting to thread them together only to miss the needle’s eye, and then giving it another go.

Pattern of Place by Elise Futoransky is an exhibition of print and textile work that explores Ukrainian Canadian heritage through the use of repetition, tiling, and recombination of motifs drawn from Ukrainian visual culture and local Albertan plant life. Elise developed the work as part of the 2022/23 SNAP Emerging Artist Residency.

PLEASE NOTE: The gallery will be closed during the day until 7pm to prepare for the opening.
