September 14 – December 15, 2019

Opening Reception: September 13, 7-9pm

This exhibition introduces the work of Alberta artist Katie Ohe to British Columbia audiences through a career that spans over sixty years, as a sculptor, teacher and mentor. MONSOON presents works that reveal her singular vision and its influence, from early ceramic sculpture to recent steel pieces and interactive projects, alongside works by renowned younger artists who studied with her at Alberta University of the Arts (formerly Alberta College of Art and Design): Robin Arseneault, Isla Burns, Christian Eckart and Evan Penny. MONSOON takes its name from a recent sculpture, referencing both the sensual visual language used by the artist herself, whose artistic practice resides in the radiant energy of embodiment and the exploration of the figure in space.
