Oakville Galleries is delighted to present two special solo art exhibitions with work from artists Paul P. and Tanya Lukin Linklater.
In Friendly in the Knife-edged Moment the work of Toronto-based artist Paul P. considers and commemorates queer social histories, particularly the period of gay liberation that occurred just before the onset of the AIDS epidemic in the 1980s. On display you will see his lesser known delicate watercolours of gardens, flowers and statuary, as well as seascapes and shorelines, drawn from life over the past 15 years. This exhibition brings together a number of these works— which are almost entirely exhibited for the first time—in a haunting reflection on the aesthetics of longing.
Exhibition Dates: June 5 to August 28 2022
Venue: Gairloch Gardens | Hours: Tuesday to Saturday, 12 - 7pm
In My mind is with the weather, interdisciplinary artist Tanya Lukin Linklater considers the troubled colonial histories of Turtle Island (North America) and the structural violences Indigenous communities continue to withstand. In this exhibition, new and recent works consider how these violences are registered and processed in the body and highlight moments of resistance.
My mind is with the weather is presented in partnership with the Toronto Biennial of Art, a free city-wide art event taking place across the city and GTA from 26 March – 5 June, 2022.
Exhibition Dates: 5 June – 28 August 2022
Venue: Centennial Square | Hours: Tuesday to Saturday, 12 - 7pm
