Soon Comes Night. Featuring works by Steven Beckly, Martin Bennett, Sarah Sands Phillips.
Soon Comes Night explores images as an unfixed entity – between light and dark, abstract and representational, constructed and incidental. Painterly and photographic processes of abstraction, erasure and physical manipulation reveal alternative ways for imagery to surface over time, encouraging a prolonged act of looking and contemplation of duration. The title of the exhibition is inspired by a common engraving on sundials – in Latin, Mox Nox, or "Soon Night" – which reflects the work's sense of time, and its hinging between definitive states.
Soon Comes Night includes previously unseen paintings by Martin Bennett (Saskatoon), video and works on paper by Sarah Sands Phillips (Toronto), and new works by Steven Beckly (Toronto).

Shannon Garden-Smith: Brick in, brick up, brick over and over.
Bricks are most often accompanied by other bricks. They are objects which become productive through repetition – brick by brick. Despite their reputation for firm immobility, bricks have action built in. To be precise, they are verbs as much as objects: closing, paving or facing by bricking in, up or over.
With Brick in, brick up, brick over and over, Shannon Garden-Smith presents a series of sculptures which disorient the work bricks do. Using domestic decorative filters and foregrounding a tactile, repetitive process, Garden-Smith offers up objects which hold too much and too little in an attempt to resist predetermined, productivist ends.

Hanna Kostanski solo exhibition: 20th-Century Toronto: Intersections and Interactions.
City of Toronto Archives Fonds 1526 consists of 8,405 original 35mm colour slides of Toronto created by local amateur photographer Harvey R. Naylor from 1954 to 1984. Naylor, a film and sound technician by trade, was keenly interested in Toronto history, architecture, and local transit. He photographed many of Toronto's historic buildings and neighbourhoods, as well as demolition and construction sites throughout the city.
Hanna Kostanski artist statement: For nearly a decade my work has been focused on the visible passage of time, experienced through the exploration and documentation of abandoned and decaying buildings in cities like Hamilton and Detroit. I have always been fascinated with historical architecture, specifically how we interact with our buildings and structures, and what happens when that interaction ceases to exist.
My current body of work continues to explore the connection between people and their environment, but with a focus on historical representations of that relationship. To that end, I have been working on a series of paintings based on photographs found at the City of Toronto Public Archives. These images span several decades and are nostalgic of the city as it used to be. They celebrate the many past incarnations of Toronto, the vibrant intersections of the city and the interactions of its people.
Artist bio: Hanna Kostanski was born in Szczecin, Poland, and grew up in Hamilton, Ontario. She obtained her BFA from OCAD University in 2007 and currently resides in Hamilton and works in Toronto. Her work can be found in dozens of private and public collections in Toronto and Hamilton.

The Amended Landscape: Edward Burtynsky, Marco Francisco, Eve Gane, Shavon Madden and Moira Ness.
The Latcham Gallery is thrilled to present The Amended Landscape, an exhibition of photographic works by Edward Burtynsky, Eve Gane, Marco Francisco, Shavon Madden and Moira Ness.
Edward Burtynsky is one of Canada's most respected photographers whose works can be found in the collections of over sixty major museums around the world, including the National Gallery of Canada, the Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim Museum in New York. Since the 1980s he has been creating epic photographs and more recently feature films, that reflect our human imprint upon the biosphere on which we depend. The scale and beauty of Burtynsky's images depicting the environmental effects humanity has upon the landscape serve to disrupt the conventional reading of such destruction. Subversively pulling us into an intimacy with his subject, the work forces us to confront the reality of our impact upon the planet.
The Latcham Gallery has also included the lens-based work of four emerging artists Marco Francisco, Eve Gane, Shavon Madden and Moira Ness who, through a variety of methods and approaches, seek to mirror the many ways we manipulate, augment, and otherwise leave our mark upon the landscape.
