Urban Wild
ALBERTA CRAFT COUNCIL GALLERY, EDMONTON AB – Mar 30-May 4, 2013 Urban Wild features the
work of nine members of the Calgary Clay Arts Association, a collective of professional ceramic artists.
The participating artists are Mindy
Andrews, Connie Cooper, Louise
Cormier, Krista Gowland, Connie
Pike, Kathy Ransom, Monika Smith,
Darlene Swan and Susan Thorpe.
Viewers may be familiar with many of
the artists from the Urban Wild exhibit
in Calgary in 2011, where the pieces
were displayed in Open Space’s downtown 7th Avenue window.
The Alberta Craft Council exhibit showcases ceramic pieces exploring
conceptual notions of “wild” and
wilderness in the urban environment.
The works range from functional to Darlene Swan, Just Dandy, Lions (2011), earthenware clay, glazed [Alberta
sculptural, from single pieces to installa- Craft Council Gallery, Edmonton AB, Mar 30-May 4]
tions. As the curators note, the wild
doesn’t necessarily go away when cities are built, and there are often unintended consequences. Some
are striking yet familiar: the shadow of flying geese on downtown highrises, bunnies and birds in corner
lots and parks, mushrooms and dandelions along laneways and sidewalks.
The works in the exhibit have a gentle touch and unassuming appearance. Many are playful and even
whimsical. The wild horses that once pastured in today’s suburbs are captured on a Grecian-style urn,
and a set of tall skinny buildings are topped with fir trees. Mia Johnson

ROBIN LAuRENCE
MADE IN CALGARY: THE 1960S Glenbow Museum, Calgary, Feb 23Apr 28 This exhibition is the first of a year-long series examining
the character and evolution of Calgary’s art community from
1960 to 2000. Guest-curator Mary-Beth LaViolette revisits a
decade of social and cultural change, when the city almost doubled in size and artists embraced traditional art forms in new,
vibrant and occasionally controversial ways. Media represented
include printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, painting and textiles,
with artists ranging from Marion Nicoll and Janet Mitchell to
John Hall and Greg Arnold. Look, too, for work by First
Nations artists Gerald Tailfeathers and Alex Janvier.
DAVID JANZEN: TRANSFER STATION Art Gallery of Alberta, Edmonton, Mar 9-Jun 16 Janzen’s series of landscape paintings poses
heaps of broken furniture and rows of junked appliances against
misty and mountainous vistas suggestive of the Romantic sublime. Basing his imagery on his photographs and sketches he
made of landfill sites across Alberta, the artist beguiles us with
the beauty of his technique while confronting us with evidence
of the impact we are having on our natural environment.
BARBARA TIPTON Alberta Craft Council Gallery, Edmonton, Apr 6Jul 2 This Calgary-based ceramic artist pushes the sculptural and
material boundaries of her medium. Working with the basic
forms of the cup and saucer, she experiments with slab-built and
hands-free, wheel-thrown techniques, rapidly improvising
shapes in wet clay, and later building up layers of glaze to create
unexpected colours and textures. “I’m constantly on the lookout,” the artist writes, “for something that seems to ring true as
an expression, a sidelong glance, a dim remembrance.”
OSCAR CAHÉN: CANADA’S GROUNDBREAKING ILLUSTRATOR Whyte
Museum of the Canadian Rockies, Banff, Apr 6-Jun 2 Oscar Cahén is
one of Canada’s leading mid-20th century abstractionists and a
member of Toronto’s avant-garde group of artists, Painters Eleven.
This exhibition, however, examines his extraordinarily accomplished illustrations, produced between 1931 and 1954. The brilliance of this work is underscored by the turbulent circumstances of
Cahén’s tragically short life. Born and trained in Europe, he fled
Nazi persecution, only to land as an “enemy alien” in an internment camp in Canada. Released in 1942, he lived in Montreal and
then in Toronto, and was just hitting his stride as an artist when he
was killed in a car accident in 1956 at the age of 40.
MARIE LANNOO Newzones, Calgary, May 11-Jun 29 This
Saskatchewan-based artist builds up many translucent layers of
brilliantly coloured paint to create abstractions whose surfaces
shift and shimmer, reflecting light and mirroring the viewer.
Suggestions of human presence float above the seemingly liquid
depths of Lannoo’s work, challenging our perceptions of light,
colour, and dimensionality and confounding our understanding
of the relationship between abstraction and representation.

First Hand: Civil War Era Drawings
from the Becker Collection, Boston College
the Civil War. The dramatic
scenes captured by Becker
and his colleagues in this
nationally traveling exhibit
unearth a rare historical
vantage point on significant
events that were shaping a
young country in search of
national identity. First Hand
contains more than 140
drawings from the Becker
Collection, most of which
never made it to the publication stage and were only
recently uncovered by
Unknown Artist, Sketches at the General Hospital in Richmond, Virginia (April 1865), graphite on
Becker’s heirs. The Becker toned paper [Douglas F. Cooley Memorial Art Gallery, Reed College, Portland OR, Feb 5-Apr 20]
Collection at Boston College contains over 600 previously undocumented and unexhibited drawings.
Initially these works were created for Frank Leslie’s Illustrated Newspaper where Becker began working
as an errand boy before his natural artistic talent was encouraged, and he was dispatched to accompany
the Union Army and send back drawings of his observations.
Known as “Special Artists,” these 19th-century war correspondents completed their drawings in the
field and were responsible for capturing battles, movements of troops, military architecture and other
daily activities at a time when photography was too young a technology to serve this purpose. Their informational renderings were soon after sent back for publication where they were transformed into wood
engravings, then cast as metal plates that could be printed.
The images in First Hand extend beyond the Civil War era when Special Artists were assigned westward to document the expansion of the nation. Becker journeyed across the Great Plains recording the
landscape and also traveled across the Rockies on the first Pullman train. Some other highlights of this
insightful collection include subjects of railroad expansion, Chicago in the wake of the Great Fire and
Chinese immigrant culture in San Francisco. Allyn Cantor

ESKER FOUNDATION, CALGARY AB – Jan 19-Apr 21, 2013 The Esker Foundation’s third exhibit, Splendid Isolation, is an immense showcase of photographs taken over 30 years by four Alberta photographers:
Olga Chagaoutdinova, Miruna Dragan, Orest Semchishen and George Webber. It features more than
140 prints shot in different locations between 1976 and 2013, from the prairies of Canada to the United
States, Mexico, Cuba and Russia. The images range in size from a row of small photos to mural-sized
images covering entire walls.
With unifying themes of home, privacy and daily life, the photographs afford glimpses of “an empty
sadness” in pictures that are simple yet timeless
and memorable. Webber and Semchishen use a
classic documentary style to capture portraits of
the prairie in all its splendour and isolation. Webber has been photographing the people and landscape of the Canadian west for over thirty years.
Chagaoutdinova’s work examines domesticity
and globalization in several countries, including
Cuba and Russia, while Dragan’s images reflect
themes of dispersion and transcendence.
Despite profound differences in era, many of
the prints share striking similarities in tone and
execution. The solitude and beauty of country
life, unassuming domestic rooms and settings,
abandoned buildings and ruins are frozen in Orest Semchishen, Fabyon, Alberta (1978), detail, black and white
time. In the words of artistic director Naomi photograph [Esker Foundation, Calgary AB, Jan 19-Apr 21]
Potter, Splendid Isolation offers “an intense look at the politics of landscape, history and isolation.”
Free public programming for the exhibit includes several artist talks, workshops and a panel discussion, with guided tours of the exhibit every Friday noon. Mia Johnson

ROBIN LAuRENCE
PAUL WONG: YEAR OF GIF Surrey Urban Screen, Surrey, Jan 23Apr 28 New video work by one of Canada’s most acclaimed
media artists draws from his personal archive of smart phone
GIFs created during the past year. Images are presented in a
montage against a ground of shifting colour, and includes everything that caught Wong’s eye. Patterns, textures, colours,
friends, architecture, scenes of travel, digital displays, fruit, flowers, animals, satellite dishes, art, politicians and celebrities – all
flicker by as if in a digital flip book. Projected on the west wall of
the Chuck Bailey Recreation Centre, the Surrey Urban Screen is
curated by the Surrey Art Gallery.
FIONA HOWARTH: BONEYARD Fort Gallery, Langley, Mar 27-Apr 14
Defunct and discarded signs, once brilliantly lit on the Las Vegas
strip and now consigned to a junkyard at the edge of the Nevada
desert, are the subject of Howarth’s solo show. Her recurring
themes of time, memory and loss are well realized in images of
broken bulbs, peeling paint and fading invitations to gambling and
free parking. “My interest,” she writes, “lies in the aesthetics of
decay and the interplay between light, form, texture and colour.”
INVOKING VENUS: FEATHERS AND FASHION Beaty Biodiversity
Museum, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Feb 7-May 5
Photographer Catherine Stewart has focused her camera on bird
specimens located at the Beaty Biodiversity Museum and accessories from the clothing collections of Claus Jahnke and Ivan
Sayers. Her gorgeous, close-up images of avian plumage and
vintage fabrics highlight colour, pattern and texture, and are
complemented by displays of feathery hats, purses, fans and
shoes. Courtship behaviours and the attractions of adornment in
both birds and humans are richly highlighted.
LYLE WILSON: PAINT Bill Reid Gallery, Vancouver, Mar 27-Sep 15
Haisla artist Lyle Wilson is renowned for his wood sculpture,
gold and silver jewellery, printmaking, drawing and painting on
wood or paper. Organized by the Maple Ridge Art Gallery and
on view for the first time in Vancouver, this show focuses exclusively on his paintings; the subjects include crest animals like
whales and ravens to maps of Aboriginal territories to hybrid
alphabets. All explore the signs and symbols of evolving visual and
verbal languages and their relationship to indigenous culture.
ANDY WOOLDRIDGE Winchester Galleries, Victoria, Apr 9-27
Titled Chiaroscuro: Variations on a Theme, Wooldridge’s new
series of paintings combine flat passages of rich colour with contrasting effects of glowing white and deep black. Whether
depicting the natural or built environment, he treats his canvas
“as a stage set with simplified shapes and forms deliberately
placed to produce an artificial landscape.” The peaceful yet highly charged images are reminiscent of the Italian Metaphysical
school in their suggestion of an alternative reality.

MATERIALLY SPEAKING Richmond Art Gallery, Richmond, Apr 14Jun 9 Traditional craft meets postmodern sculpture in this visually,
materially and conceptually captivating exhibition. The four
artists represented – Jen Aitken, Lou Lynn, Brendan Lee Satish
Tang, and Julie York – employ everything from bronze, glass and
porcelain to paper, vinyl and fake fur. The allusions behind their
diverse and inventive practices range across antique tools, futuristic robotics, the politics of the body and the nature of perception.
GERMAINE KOH: WEATHER SYSTEMS Kamloops Art Gallery, Kamloops, Apr 6-Jun 15 The concept-driven art of this internationally acclaimed Vancouver-based artist alerts its audiences to everyday actions, objects, materials and processes – aspects of our lives
that we might otherwise overlook. The movement of the wind
and the tides, the light of the sun, the social and economic uses of
communication devices, the clothes we wear and our quotidian
movements through time and space, have all caught Koh’s interest and informed her art. This exhibition presents new work and
also brings together, for the first time, her three-part series, Fairweather forces.
SLAVS AND TATARS Presentation House Gallery, North Vancouver,
Apr 12-May 26 Friendship of Nations: Polish Shi’ite Showbiz is the

Based in Paris, Warsaw, New York and Moscow and working in a
range of media, these artists examine the vast area known as
Eurasia, east of the (now defunct) Berlin Wall and west of the
(still standing) Great Wall of China. This show addresses shared
genealogy and overlapping social, political and environmental
movements between Iran and Poland.

ANDREA HOOGE: DOLLY Hot Art Wet City, Vancouver, Apr 12-May 4
Doll-head portraits, painted on wooden cut-outs and mounted
on highly detailed scratchboards, take on a presence somewhere
between “cute and creepy.” Hooge, whose undergraduate degree
is in fine arts and psychology, began the series by examining the
faces of dolls from the 1950s. Her dual education and her fondness for vintage graphic styles are revealed in the spooky, halfway life her postwar subjects exude.
HIGH FIRE CULTURE Satellite Gallery, Vancouver May 24-Jul 6 The
subject of this intriguing show is the studio pottery movement as
it manifested itself on Canada’s West Coast during the 1960s and
70s. A raft of local potters, including Lari Robson, Sam Kwan and
Hiro Urakami, were powerfully influenced by the aesthetic sensibilities and Zen philosophy espoused by British potter Bernard
Leach and his Japanese colleague Shoji Hamada. Curated by
Nora Vaillant and Shelly Rosenblum, the exhibition demonstrates the “intensity, spirit and style” that identifies these potters
as members of a tremendously influential pottery movement.

Nancy Holt: Selected Photo and Film Works
CONTEMPORARY ART GALLERY, VANCOUVER, BC – Apr 19-Jun 16, 2013 Nancy Holt is an American
pioneer of site-specific art as well as film and
video, and one of the foremost international
Land Art artists. Holt employs the natural environment as both medium and subject in pieces
that address themes of memory, perception,
time and space.
With a focus on the cyclical nature of the
universe, the daily rotation of planet earth and its
annual orbit around the sun, Holt conceived her
earthworks as “seeing devices” for tracking the
position of the sun, stars and the earth. The exhibition at CAG includes major photographic
works, including early Concrete Visions (1967) and
Trail Markers (1969); a series of photographs
entitled Light and Shadow Photo-Drawings (1978);
and photographs by Holt of her most famous
large-scale environmental sculptural work, Sun
Tunnels (1973-76).

William Perehudoff (1918-2013)
NEWZONES, CALGARY AB – Apr 6-May 9, 2013 Newzones is honoured to present a third retrospective of the work of Canadian painter William Perehudoff. Following their successful exhibitions 50
Years of Abstraction in 2010 and William Perehudoff: ’60s to ’90s in 2008, the gallery is currently featuring
pieces selected from five decades of painting to celebrate the artist’s life and exemplary career. It
includes acrylic paintings on
paper as well as on canvas.
The exhibit takes on added
significance with the news of
his death in February 2013.
Perehudoff wrote in 1967,
“My paintings carry no other
message but the surprise,
spontaneity and optimism of
colour.” Since the early 1940s,
Perehudoff made a significant
contribution to the development of colour field and
abstract painting in Canada.

across Canada for two years, with exhibitions at the Glenbow Museum in Calgary, the Art Gallery of
Windsor, the Robert McLaughlin Gallery in Oshawa, ON and the Kamloops Art Gallery.
Perehudoff exhibited internationally in London, Paris, New York, Toronto and Chicago.
His paintings are in the collection of numerous prestigious Canadian institutions including the
National Gallery of Canada and the Museum of Civilization. Mia Johnson

Conservator’s Corner
BY REBECCA PAVITT
FINE ART CONSERVATION, www.fineartconserve.com
Iron In Paper: Problems and Current Solutions – Part 2
Most of the conservation research regarding treatment options for Fe(II) catalyzed oxidative damage,
sometimes displayed as discoloration and foxing in paper is focused on stabilizing iron gall inks in archival
collections. As a conservator, my aim is to apply the findings of this research to address problems posed by
iron contaminants that may be scattered throughout the paper sheet and develop an effective cleaning and
stain reduction system whether the paper contains iron or not.
Treatment steps in such systems might include the following. Some modification may be necessary to
protect sensitive media or paper surfaces, and in some cases treatment is not possible. (Keep in mind that
Fe(II) ions are catalytic and water soluble; Fe(III) ions are insoluble.)
Water treatment: Uses solutions where the conductivity is tailored to optimize soil removal. This treatment removes soluble discoloration and some catalytic Fe(II) ions as Fe(II) is water soluble. (See Wolbers’
World: a Workshop Review in the September 2012 issue).
Reduction: Reducing agents or bleaches like sodium dithionite and sodium borohydride reduce overall
discoloration and stains and convert some insoluble Fe(III) to water soluble Fe(II).
Chelation: Chelators are weak organic acids that can sequester metal ions and remove intractable soils that
surfactants and water alone can’t budge. Citric acid and EDTA are two chelators sometimes used in paper
conservation that reduce overall discoloration and
stains and sequester some amount of Fe(II) and
Fe(III).
Citric acid has less binding power than
EDTA, which can be an advantage when treating
items with vulnerable colours. The stronger binding powers of EDTA are useful, but can be hazardous to the media. Rinsing well after chelation
is essential as any residual EDTA allows it to join
catalytic Fe(II) and hydrogen peroxide in the
same molecule a combination likely to trigger the
dreaded Fenton Reaction: in a few weeks or
months, the previously cleaned paper can become
Some of the chemicals used to remove or inactivate iron in paper
heavily spotted and discoloured.
Phytic acid may provide a better option than EDTA as phytic acid does not bind with hydrogen peroxide; any phytate-Fe residues that might be left in the paper after treatment are so efficiently bound that
they remain chemically inactive. Because phytic acid is only slightly weaker than EDTA, media vulnerability is a consideration.
Oxidative bleaches: The above treatments may eliminate or minimize the need for oxidative bleaches.
Gentle light bleaching may be sufficient and chemical bleaches can be applied in rigid gels for very targeted treatments.
Alkaline reserve: Raising the pH of the treated paper to the 8-8.5 range binds a proportion of any residual Fe(II) into insoluble hydroxides preventing further catalytic activity. Alkaline reserves also protect
against future acid hydrolysis, which causes yellowing.
Antioxidants: More research is required, but antioxidants will likely be used in the future to prevent metal-catalyzed oxidative damage.
Resizing with gelatin: Creates a protective barrier between the paper and the outside environment to slow
down the absorption of airborne pollutants like peroxides and buffer changes in Relative Humidity (RH).
Environmental controls: High humidity promotes chemical reactions, including iron catalyzed oxidation.
RH-conditioned sealed framing and storage systems are protective. Moderate temperatures also reduce
chemical reactions.
This summary of treatment options for paper conservation is intended for the general public. Chemical
concentrations, modifications and pH ranges for their safe use have not been included.

SATELLITE GALLERY, VANCOUVER BC – Apr 12-May 11, 2013 Curated by UBC student Katie Schroeder, Full Frontal presents work by Iain Baxter, Tom Dean, Maria Eichhorn, Russell FitzGerald, Noam
Gonick, jess, Brian Jungen, Bruce LaBruce, Attila Richard Lukacs, Robert Mapplethorpe, Eric Metcalfe, Michael Morris, Jack Shadbolt, Wolfgang Tillmans, Vincent Trasov and Joyce Wieland,
among others. The
exhibit draws from
the Morris and
Helen Belkin collection and seeks to
examine relationships between masculinity and male
sexuality.
Including photographs, paintings,
drawings, sculpture
and video, the selection spans 50 years
of art making and Noam Gonick, No Safe Words (2009), 12-channel video [Satellite Gallery, Vancouver BC, Apr 12-May 11]
draws on many perspectives and modes of representation. While the phallus is central to many works, others more formally
address themes of male power and ways in which images of masculinity are regulated. From a postcardsized photo of a man’s groin by American photographer Robert Mapplethorpe to Joyce Weiland’s O
Canada lithograph, and from Michael Morris’ stylized and emblematic phallus to a gouache on newspaper image by Jack Shadbolt, the artists variously explore public and private manifestations of sexuality
and maleness.
Full Frontal is made possible with support from the Michael O'Brian Family Foundation, the Killy
Foundation and the Audain Endowment for Curatorial Studies through the Department of Art History,
Visual Art and Theory in collaboration with the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery at The University
of British Columbia, and Satellite Gallery. Mia Johnson

Yared Nigussu
KURBATOFF GALLERY, VANCOUVER BC – May 9-23, 2013 Yared Nigussu, known as “Yared N”, is an
Ethiopian-born portrait artist now based in Vancouver. Yared N began showing his work in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in 2005 after graduating from the Addis
Ababa University School of Fine Arts and Design.
He had numerous exhibitions in France from 2006
to 2009. More recently he has done artist residencies
in Vienna and Millstättersee, Austria and at Raw
Canvas Art+Social, Vancouver, where his paintings
were shown in 2010 and 2011.
During travels in Canada, France and Austria,
Yared N was impressed by the density and complexity of contemporary urban buildings. Many of his
street scenes have exaggerated linear perspective
with infinite vanishing points to dramatize the architecture and emphasize fast movement through space.
The paint appears to be applied with palette knives
or square-tipped brush strokes, resulting in textures
that are blocky, linear and cut by thin vertical and
horizontal lines. The effect is one of speed and shattered vision. Several paintings in the Kurbatoff
exhibit depict familiar settings around Vancouver,
from Yaletown and West Broadway to Davie Street.
Yared N has also become known for perform- Yared Nigussu, Yaletown (2013), oil on canvas [Kurbatoff
ance art pieces and his participation in art battles. Gallery, Vancouver BC, May 9-23]
He uses music to set the pace and tone of the
works, which often feature large-scale faces. The Kurbatoff exhibit features a number of his
dynamic portraits. Mia Johnson

David Blackwood
Black Ice: Prints from Newfoundland
ART GALLERY OF GREATER VICTORIA, VICTORIA BC – May 3-Sep 8, 2013 David Blackwood’s Black Ice:
Prints from Newfoundland includes more than 70 prints
that date back to 1956 when he opened his first studio.
Black Ice also includes Blackwood’s archive of letters,
photographs, maps and nautical artifacts that showcase
the historical and cultural period which profoundly
inspired this artist: the fishing and sealing communities of
rural Newfoundland in the early 1900s.
Known primarily for his intaglio prints, Blackwood is
a hugely popular artist internationally and has received
both the Order of Canada (1993) and the Order of
Ontario (2002). This is his first major Canadian exhibition; curated by Katharine Lochnan and organized by the
Art Gallery of Ontario, this show originally premiered at
the AGO in February 2011.
Although Blackwood left Newfoundland as a teenager
to study at the Ontario College of Art, his imagery
throughout the years has been steadfast. The peoples of
his early life in Wesleyville where he was born are
revealed forever in a heroic and luminescent struggle –
together as a community – against the ocean and the cold.
Combining master printmaking skills and a remarkable
David Blackwood, Fire Down on the Labrador (1980), talent for storytelling, David Blackwood’s work is a
poignant and spellbinding glimpse into a mystical time

Greater Victoria, Victoria BC, May 3-Sep 8]

COURTESY OF THE ARTIST AND THE THIRD LINE, DUBAI
Safar/Voyage
MUSEUM OF ANTHROPOLOGY, VANCOUVER BC – Apr 20-Sep 15, 2013 Safar/Voyage is a group
exhibition of paintings, sculptures, video and audio installations by 16 prominent artists from the
Middle East. With themes of war, revolution and migrant conditions, the Arab, Iranian and Turkish
artists in Safar/Voyage depict everyday realities and the politics of living in their respective regions.
The curator, Fereshteh Daftari,
describes the work as delving into “the
multifaceted ideas of voyage, ranging
from border crossing, war, migration,
and exile to philosophical positions
regarding life itself as a voyage.” He sees
the exhibition as an opportunity to challenge what are often simplified and misrepresented ideas about burning issues
of global concern. Rather than exoticizing the life and realities of the people,
the artists present visual commentaries
on contemporary issues and offer their
own personal, political, philosophical
and spiritual perceptions on universal
issues of access and stability.

Practical Art History or
Confessions of a Fine Art Appraiser
BY JIM FINLAY
FINLAY FINE ART
www.FinlayFineArt.com
Chapter 36. The Case of Fritz Stehwien
I first became aware of the paintings of German-Canadian artist Fritz Stehwien (1914-2008) when
a friend of mine purchased the River in Winter at an auction several years ago. She later confessed she didn’t know anything about the artist or his work, but liked the painting very much,
especially its traditional mode of composition, use of colour and subject matter.
I did some research on her behalf and became familiar with Fritz Stehwien. Trained at the
Hansische Hochschule für Bildende Künste in Hamburg, Germany, he served as a soldier in
France and Russia from 1939 to 1946. He resumed his studies after the war, taking advanced
classes at the Kunstschule Burg Giebichenstein in Halle and participating in art shows in
Dresden, Berlin and Halle. In 1958 he and his family escaped from Communist-ruled East
Germany and settled in Doffingen, West Germany, and in 1968 they immigrated to Canada
and settled in Saskatchewan. The
date on this painting is also 1968
and may have been one of the very
first paintings Stehwien completed
in Canada.
During the course of his 40-year
painting career in Canada, Stehwien
painted mostly views of Saskatchewan
and had many exhibitions including
one at the University of Saskatchewan
in Saskatoon.
Stylistically, his work is typical
of the works associated with the
Group of Seven and their contemporaries. So why have Stehwien’s
works not shown up at fine art
auctions?
Fritz Stehwien, River in Winter (1968), oil on canvas
Are views of the landscape of
Northern Ontario more representative of authentic Canadian painting than landscape views
of Saskatchewan? It would appear that Stehwien’s works conform to the national ideal of what
a Canadian landscape painting should look like, yet his works have not appeared in the Canadian fine art auction market.
As most frequent attendees of Canadian fine art auctions held by the major art houses in
Vancouver and Toronto will no doubt attest to, by far the large majority of artworks for sale
are by a select group of well-known Canadian artists who have a prior history of sales at auction. The membership has remained substantially unchanged over the last 50 years and
includes members of the Group of Seven and their contemporaries.
Only recently have Canadian fine art auction houses included more contemporary Canadian
artists such as members of Painters Eleven, the Regina Five, Les Plasticiens and Les Automatistes, all well documented and academically sanctioned within the art history community as representative of the best in period Canadian art. One would suspect the reason for this anomaly is
partly due to the shortage of traditional investment-quality work and also a desire on the part of
auction houses to create another market. People like my friend who purchased Stehwien’s painting because the artwork reminded her of the long winters of her youth seem to be unique.

GALLERY JONES, VANCOUVER BC – Apr 4-27, 2013 Pierre Coupey is a well-known Vancouver
painter and English instructor who taught at Capilano College from 1970 to 2003, and has continued to teach at Capilano since it became a university. The author of several books of poetry, chapbooks and catalogues, Coupey has exhibited in numerous solo and group shows nationally and
internationally.
Coupey’s work is being shown at three venues in the spring of 2013. A solo exhibition at Gallery

calligraphic marks that reference poetry. The
focus is the wheat fields of the Prairies,
France and the Ukraine.
Co-curated by Darrin Morrison and
Astrid Heyerdahl, the West Vancouver
Museum and the Art Gallery at the
Evergreen Cultural Centre have concurrently
mounted Cutting Out the Tongue: Selected
Work 1976-2012, a major survey show of 40
paintings on canvas and paper.
Pierre Coupey was born in Montreal in
1942. He earned a BA at McGill University

Julie Green: The Last Supper
THE ART GYM, MARYLHURST OR – Apr 16-May 17, 2013 Julie Green became interested in the final
meal requests of inmates on death row during her years living in Oklahoma where she would read
about it in the morning paper. Oklahoma is the state
with the highest per capita death rate. The Corvallis,
Oregon-based artist and professor began her Last
Supper project over 10 years ago as a reflection on
capital punishment and how these final meals humanize each individual inmate.
The ongoing project illustrates these personal
meal requests for pizza, ice cream, donuts and Cherry
Coke to justice, equality, and world peace with images
and words painted in cobalt tones on second-hand
dishes. Green uses mineral paints that are kiln fired to
the dinnerware by her technical advisor Toni Acock.
The large installation of 500 plates is haunting in its
simple truism. For Green these requests provide clues
on race, economic background, region and family history – like when the Indiana Department of Corrections stated about one inmate, “He told us he never
had a birthday cake so we ordered a birthday cake for
him.”
In Green’s work the irony of this final choice
becomes a poignant meditation on the strange tradition of last meal requests, pointing to larger questions
about the margin of error, the morality of capital punishment, and why, in some states, it has been abolished Julie Green, Indiana 05 May 2007 (2007), cobalt mineral
for years, where states like Texas still have high death paint on kiln-fired ceramics [The Art Gym, Marylhurst OR,
rates. She plans to continue adding 50 plates a year Apr 16-May 17]
until capital punishment is outlawed. Green has received national media attention for this heartfelt
project; on April 11th she will be on the Colbert Report to talk about the Last Supper. Allyn Cantor
Apr 4-27 Joan Waltemath, “Latencies”, recent abstract paintings focus
on constructing spatial voids using
harmonic progressions and non-traditional, reflective pigments in oils as
well as drawings in diverse materials;
Robert Lyons, “Pictures from the next
day”, photographs – a series about
Walter Niemec, who has spent his life
in Western Massachusetts, focuses on
his space and belongings, aging, life
choices; May 2-Jun 1 Jaq Chartier,

ROLL HARDY: RECENT PAINTINGS Laura Russo Gallery, Portland, Apr
4-27 Portland artist Roll Hardy paints the beauty of decay using
urban subjects of abandoned buildings, post-industrial sites and
weathered street scenes to convey the inevitability of time upon cultural and economic undertakings. Mystery and possibility are evident
in the worn surfaces of architectural spaces and graffiti-laden
cityscapes depicted in Hardy’s canvases. The places that Hardy
chooses to render have an archeological emptiness that point to the
shortcomings inherent in industry and enterprise.
FOLKERT DE JONG Portland Art Museum, Portland, Jan 5-Apr 21
Dutch artist Folkert de Jong is internationally known for his largescale figurative works and installations made from modern industrial
materials like styrofoam and polyurethane. His macabre pieces tell
tales of human folly, wartime, political and economic calamity
through forthcoming tableaux that are mildly humorous, somewhat
gruesome and often uncomfortable. The two major sculptures and
series of drawings at the Portland Art Museum certainly achieve his
intention of having a visceral impact.

KENNETH JOSEPHSON: IN RETROSPECT Charles A. Hartman Fine Art,
Portland, Mar 20-Apr 27 Understanding the rhythm and behaviour of
light is central to photographic mastery. The work of Kenneth
Josephson takes these formal considerations to another level, building conceptual images that are at once playful and serious, speaking
to a fascination with both the internal and external worlds. Throughout his 50-year career, the Chicago-based artist was at the forefront
of conceptual photography in the 1960s and 70s. This retrospective
includes stellar examples from this period of his career.
JAMES B. THOMPSON: LINEAR METAPHYSICS: CONTEMPORARY
MARK-MAKING AND TIME-BASED ART WORKS Hallie Ford Museum of
Art, Salem, Apr 13-May 13 Drawing on the intersection of art and
archaeology, James B. Thompson examines the history and pre-history of mark-making as the original form of time-based media. His
interest in the ancient Celtic and Iron Age tribes of Scotland and
Britain – people with a strong interrelationship to land, seas and cosmos – considers how these cultures remain only in fragments of the
landscape. Thompson’s layering of linear elements in ink and paint
suggest a similar stratification effect, paying homage to the passage
of time.

WE TELL OURSELVES STORIES IN ORDER TO LIVE Museum of Contemporary Craft, Portland, Jan 24-Apr 27 Recipients of the prestigious

artists demonstrate a cross-disciplinary approach to their art practice.
They expand upon the conceptual, material and critical potential of
art, craft and design trajectories. The show title is derived from Joan
Didion’s 1979 essay The White Album and Los Angeles guest curator
Cassandra Coblentz utilizes this text as a theme from which to view
the diversity among this regional artwork.

Nicolai Fechin
COLLECTION: THE EUGENE B ADKINS COLLECTION AT THE FRED JONES JR. MUSEUM OF ART
FRYE ART MUSEUM, SEATTLE WA – Feb 9-May 19, 2013 This significant retrospective of Nicolai
Fechin’s artwork is the first hosted at the Frye Art Museum since 1976. The Russian-American
painter (1881-1955) is best known for his innovative portraiture and painting technique that blends
realism with highly textural surfaces and an emotional handling of paint that well preceded Abstract
Expressionist styles.
Born in Kazan, Russia, Fechin studied early on
with popular Russian painter Ilya Repin, whose work
emphasized the realistic values of northern European
masters such as Rembrandt. By 1910 Fechin’s work
was internationally recognized, and he participated
in major exhibits in Europe and the United States.
Due to the chaos and poor conditions of post-revolutionary Russia, Fechin immigrated to New York in
1923 where he spent several years working before
relocating to Taos, New Mexico and later Southern
California.
This major exhibit ranges from early works during Fechin’s emerging years in Russia to later pieces
during his time in Taos and California where he
became increasingly interested in the landscape and
the native people of New Mexico.
With a strong emphasis on works created in Russia, this overview draws largely from the Frye’s holdNicolai Fechin, Portrait of My Father (1912), oil on canvas
ings from this seminal period of Fechin’s career
[Frye Art Museum, Seattle WA, Feb 9-May 19]
when some of his most evocative paintings came into
fruition. Among the 55 pieces in the show, Fechin’s strength lies in vibrantly coloured portraits that
glow with personality, subjects that merge into the activated picture plane and figuration that emphasizes gesture, movement and vitality. Allyn Cantor

FRANCISCO GOYA: THE COMPLETE LOS CAPRICHOS SERIES Davidson
Galleries, Seattle, Apr 5-27 This historic series of etchings, first published in 1799 by Francisco Goya, is a suite of 80 allegorical images
that depict dark caricatures of civilized society. Regarded as the most
important Spanish artist of the late 18th and early 19th centuries,
Goya’s fantastical vision was filled with metaphor and witty cultural
critique that was ahead of its time. Los Caprichos serves as a keystone
of modern art. Played out by supernatural creatures, Goya’s nightmarish scenes exposed the shortcomings of his Spanish society in an
age of turmoil and revolution.
SALLY CLEVELAND Linda Hodges Gallery, Seattle, Apr 4-27 Portland
native Sally Cleveland paints scenes with a distinctive regional tone.
Her renditions of landscapes, urban and suburban sites are realistically depicted with the moody Northwest feeling of a subdued
palette, tempered grey skies and thick atmosphere that undoubtably
places these humble subjects close to home. Cleveland’s pieces are
small in scale, which adds to their seductive quality; her scenes are so
fully realized within the intimately sized compositions that it’s easy to
connect with the simple moments of the particular places that Cleveland offers in her paintings.
CLARE BELFRAGE: THREADS Foster/White Gallery, Seattle, May 2-31 In
her new body of work, Australian glass artist Clare Belfrage references
the textile patterning of woven and sewn lines on elegant glass forms
that are delicate, luminous and seemingly weightless. An internationally recognized artist, Belfrage has been creating glass sculpture with a
reverence toward the natural environment that has an exceptional ability to filter essential elements into a dynamic simplicity. Her newest
pieces further demonstrate technical mastery as the artist rhythmically
weaves string-like textures into the stillness of her glass forms.

KENT LOVELACE: OCCITANIA Lisa Harris Gallery, Seattle, Apr 4-29 Washington-based artist Kent Lovelace draws inspiration from Occitania, an
area in Southern France once occupied by the Romans. Lovelace has an
affinity for painting landscapes that have been cultivated for centuries.
Over the last 15 years his atmospheric scenes have been painted with oil
glazes on metal plates – a technique that dates back to 15th-century
Europe. Using a reflective copper surface, Lovelace creates eloquent
light-filled compositions with a moody contemplative tone.

(1603-1868). The iconic “lucky charm” stems from popular legend
of a cat credited with saving the life of a nobleman. Ranging from
simple carved stone pieces to ornately decorated porcelain sculptures, this large collection of over 150 maneki neko includes pieces
from the 19th and 20th centuries and is one of the most extensive
outside Japan.

Exhibition Catalogues of Interest
DAMIAN MOPPETT is produced in conjunction with this young artist’s solo
show at the Rennie Collection at Wing Sang. Moppett’s art-historically inspired
practice include videos, oil paintings, drawings in graphite and watercolour,
videos and sculptures in metal, ceramic and plaster. Vancouver collector Bob
Rennie discusses how he assembled Moppett’s works over the years. Hayward
Gallery curator Cliff Lauson examines the artist’s research into the art of Rubens,
Rodin, Calder and Caro, and his focus on the studio as a site of production and
creativity. (Lauson’s essay is published in both English and French.)
Hardcover, 100 pages, $25 CAD. Available online at Amazon and in Vancouver at Read
Books (Charles H. Scott Gallery), 604-844-3809
THE NEWS FROM HERE is the catalogue to the 2013 Alberta Biennial of
Contemporary Art featuring 36 artists chosen by award-winning art critic and
independent curator Nancy Tousley. Artists range from established to emerging.
Art forms include textiles, sound, video installations, mixed-media sculpture,
realist paintings and computer-manipulated photographs. Tying the work
together is Tousley’s essay about the role artists play in communicating an idea
of place, "Place is a process: it is built on what came before yet it is
always changing.” She credits the AGA biennials as a means of showing us
“where we have been” and of pointing to “where we might be going.”
Softcover, 95 pages, $15 CAD. Available at Shop AGA, 780-392-2499 or [email protected]
KOSHASHIN: THE HALL COLLECTION OF 19TH CENTURY PHOTOGRAPHS OF
JAPAN is an exhibition on view at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria of photographs taken in Japan from the latter part of the Tokugawa shogunate to the
beginnings of the Meija era (early 1860s to late 1890s). As collector Arlene Hall
notes, the photos “document Japan’s passage from a feudal society to a modern
one.” Images encompass the gorgeous (temples, beautifully costumed women)
and the curious (religious processions, tattooed men) to the horrific (the aftermath of a deadly earthquake, crucified and beheaded criminals). An overview is
provided by Terry Bennett, a dealer and historian of East Asian photography.
Softcover, 144 pages, $35 CAD. Available through the AGGV gift shop, 250-384-7012 or
[email protected]

was published in conjunction with the Museum of Contemporary Craft exhibit.

David Byrd | Introduction: A Life of Observation
GREG KUCERA GALLERY, SEATTLE, WA — April 4-May 18, 2013 Observation and experience are the
foundation of David Byrd's work and creative life. The 86-year old artist will be introducing his paintings to the commercial art world in Introduction: A Life of Observation. The exhibition presents Byrd’s
major paintings, smaller studies, works on paper, and wood sculpture, drawing from the many rich
memories of his life.
For almost three decades, Byrd worked in the psychiatric ward at a veterans’ hospital. Some of his
most defining paintings stem from his
work with patients who were damaged
from the war and capture the distinct
personalities and behaviours that he witnessed.
Stylistically Byrd uses moody tonal
hues coupled with spatial relationships to
capture scenes of figures and his memories of place. His paintings yield intelligent arrangements – having notable similarities to pieces by Andrew Wyeth,
Edward Hopper, and Georges Seurat –
while being rooted in the social realism
and genre painting of the 1930s and ’40s,
the era when Byrd came of age.
Byrd studied art for a short time in
Philadelphia
and New York after World

WA, Apr 4-May 18] Courtesy of Greg Kucera Gallery
Marines and the U.S. Army. His travels
through Europe, Asia and the Mediterranean, as well as maritime subjects from the war years, are evident in many of his pieces.
Byrd retired from the hospital in 1988 and went on to build a home and studio in rural New York.
He continues to paint and create wood sculpture. Allyn Cantor
