Goop of Seven

VASA Gallery presents the 'Goop of Seven'. Opening reception is on Thursday, August 7th from 6 - 9 pm, with the exhibition running from August 5th to August 29th, 2014.

"New material demands new methods and new methods fling a challenge to old conventions."

The Goop of 7 is a group of independent fine artists that have a common interest in poured, dripped, flowed, splattered, melted, splashed, smeared and molded media. Their inaugural show in August at VASA Gallery will be influenced by their name-sake, the Group of Seven ... but not totally. Inspiration yes, slavish imitation no! If abstraction is the ‘reduc-tion’ of an image to its basic essentials, then ‘redux-ion’ gives their art a modern twist (redux being defined as ‘brought back’). New materials, new methods bring back the edgy nature that the Group of Seven brought to Canadian art.

Peter Gegolick, Samantha Williams-Chapelsky, Rick Rogers, Connie Osgood, Linda Blezard, Randall Talbot, Carla Beerens, Lisa Liusz, Julie Kaldenhoven, Garrett Plummer
