1pm Artists’ Roundtable with curator Katherine Ylitalo and artists from the exhibition MONSOON: Robin Arsenault, Isla Burns, Katie Ohe and Evan Penny.
This exhibition introduces the work of Alberta artist <b>Katie Ohe</b> to British Columbia audiences through a career that spans over sixty years, as a sculptor, teacher and mentor. It 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. <b>MONSOON</b> 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. Guest Curator: Katherine Ylitasalo.
