Open Sesame: Art, Books and Objects

My Account

SAT, OCT 31, 2015 7 pm | Opening Reception: "Amanda Rhodenizer: Works on Paper"

Celebrate the opening of KW-based artist Amanda Rhodenizer's exhibition—and Open Sesame's debut!—during NightShift.

Inspired by the imperialist tradition of picturing Canadian land as “up for grabs,” Rhodenizer points to it as an ongoing part of Canada’s narrative of settlement and expansion. There is a tension in her small oil paintings between the natural and the unnatural, the everyday and the surreal, and the familiar and the anonymous.

Rhodenizer, who received her MFA from the University of Waterloo in 2014, has exhibited her work at Toronto’s Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery, Art Mûr in Montréal, the Orillia Museum of Art & History, the Khyber Centre for the Arts in Halifax, and many other galleries and institutions.
