January 12 - March 24, 2013
Artist Talk, followed by Opening Reception: January 12th at 1 pm
Curator's Walk & Talk: January 17th & February 21 at 7 pm (Free)

Susan Rankin: Valid Objects of Beauty includes work that spans over the last twelve years, and displays a varied range of inquiry into form, function, and the role of aesthetic appeal. Rankin’s skill has been applied to epergnes, scroll vases and sculptural works, and while inspiration for these different bodies of work has been clearly drawn from botanical designs, Rankin has also engaged the history of glass itself.  She flawlessly combines an in-depth knowledge of technique with an emphasis on the importance of beauty in works of art.

October 20 - December 2, 2012
Opening Reception: Saturday October 20 at 1pm, all are welcome
Curator's Walk & Talk: Thursday November 15, 7pm

“A painting of a pipe with the caption “this is not a pipe” by Belgian artist René Magritte puzzled viewers with his image/text pairing titled The Treachery of Images over eighty years ago. The surrealist painter opened new discussions by coupling words with pictures in his art,” explains gallery curator, Olexander Wlasenko.  “This conversation continues in Reading the Image, a group exhibition opening at Station Gallery on Saturday, October 20 at 1pm.”

Words and pictures are very powerful, particularly when they appear together. This show explores this pairing. Artists and writers from across Durham Region and beyond share how they merge images with text to create new meanings. Check out Reading the Image to see, learn and feel how pictures and words are made for each other!
