Kristine Erglis, artist, illustrator, feminist.
In 1994, Kristine Erglis started making art at our studios. We are showing her art from the past and some of her current work. Kristine will not be present for the exhibition. She moved from Toronto to Nova Scotia many years ago in order to seek a gentler, quieter life.
Kristine puts into images, things that most of us are afraid to say or express including how the media has made women feel about their bodies. New, Surgically Removed Hips was shown in Images of Women 1994 in an exhibition celebrating the many aspects and images of women. That exhibition taught both the artist, Kristine and the curator, Ellen Anderson, the difference in perception between men and women. A well-known male artist looked at the image of Surgically Removed Hips and declared his sister had had that operation. "No!" Kristine proclaimed. "It isn't about a medical procedure. It's about how women are made to feel about their bodies!" The male artist insisted that his sister had indeed had the surgery. Ellen and Kristine looked at each other, realizing that the fellow didn't understand the point of the painting. Women who came to view the image, understood immediately and would say, "Yes, I've been made to feel that way". Men ignored the work and quietly walked past it without a word.
Kristine conjures up colourful dreams, joyous leaping lizards, anger, coy angels, a frustrated receptionist; all illicit immediate recognition. Some of the works use humour, and the play of vibrant colours of inks and watercolours are sometimes laced with words. Other works speak for themselves without any words.

Urban 150. Cove Gallery. Mesmerized by the multicultural country that she grew up in, Josephine Condotta has created 12 artworks representing 12 Canadian cities and their electricity. "I've always found the electricity of a city to be a remarkable thing. The charge you feel from that energy of the culture and motion of all the people who live or pass through it is thrilling!" – Josephine Condotta.

first day
The Nanking Cargo. In December 1751, a ship from the Dutch East India Company left Canton, China, with more than 230,000 pieces of porcelain, textiles and tea for the European market. Less than a month later, the ship sank. Over 200 years later, Michael Hatcher and his team recovered more than 150,000 pieces of porcelain that became known as the Nanking Cargo. The porcelain was sold in 2,800 lots in a record-breaking sale at Christie's Amsterdam. The Art Gallery of Burlington is fortunate to own 240 pieces of this collection ... more

Under the Spell.
From the 1000-year-old celadons of the Sung dynasty, to the blue and white export ware of the 18th century, Chinese ceramics inspire and challenge contemporary clay artists to this day. A selection of work from the AGB's Permanent Collection of Contemporary Canadian Ceramics looks at the relationship between the past and the present and how China's mastery continues to capture the imaginations of today's artists.

This group exhibition of paintings by Canadian artists Derrick Piens, Claire Scherzinger, Larissa Tiggelers, and Heidi Jahnke explores the latest trends in the medium through mysterious and bizarre interpretations of landscape and sculpture.

Waterloo Architecture in Venice. "The sustained presence of Waterloo Architecture in Venice over the past decade is truly remarkable: in five consecutive instances, Waterloo Architecture's faculty and graduates have represented Canada at the most prestigious international exhibition of architecture. The exhibition features work assembled from these five exhibitions presented at the Architecture Biennale between 2008 and 2016, and testifies to the breadth and critical depth of research the School of Architecture fosters. Rich with prototypes, tests, photographs but also shipping plans, Waterloo Architecture in Venice offers a vivid glimpse into what it means to research, plan, build, ship and install an architectural exhibition some thousands of kilometers away, from the shore of the Grand River to the Venetian Lagoon." – Dr Anne Bordeleau, OAQ, O'Donovan Director, School of Architecture, University of Waterloo.
The five exhibitions included are: 2008 – 41º – 66º Architecture in Canada: Region, Culture, Tectonics by John McMinn + Marco Polo; 2010 – The Hylozoic Ground by Phillip Beesley; 2011 – Migrating Landscapes by 5468796 Architecture Inc., including contributions by Marianna de Cola, Liana Bresler, Batay Csorba Studio; 2012 – Arctic Adaptations by Lateral Office (Lola Sheppard + Mason White); 2014 – The Evidence Room by Robert Jan van Pelt with Anne Bordeleau, Donald McKay + Sascha Hastings.
