Opening Reception and Tour On Deck for ‘When One Space Meets Another'

March 31, 2017

Public programming celebrates opening of Leah Garnett's installation work

(Charlottetown, P.E.I.) - The Confederation Centre Art Gallery will celebrate the recent launch of Leah Garnett's installation work, When One Space Meets Another.

An opening reception and tour with the artist is planned for next Saturday, April 8 at 7 p.m. in the Gallery. There will be a cash bar and all are welcome for this event. Garnett's tour is offered free of charge and the public is encouraged to ask questions and take advantage of this opportunity for engaging interpretation around visual art. For future gallery events, including Afterimage art party on Saturday May 13, visit confederationcentre.com/gallery or facebook.com/ccoagallery.

Based in Sackville, New Brunswick, Garnett's installations explore the shaping of public spaces -- how we construct, mold, and contain them. Channeling her experience growing up on construction sites, the artist's work, in which she creates installations that combine mark-making and building with tape, string, wood, and other materials, has been described as "drawing in space."

For the Centre's Art Gallery, Garnett has playfully created a unique piece in which she transposes various sites - woods in Maine, an exhibition space in Sackville, a construction site - into the more traditional exhibition space of the gallery.

Leah Garnett: When One Space Meets Another is on exhibition in the Upper East Gallery until June 4, 2017.
