Falling Off The Log

Robin Arseneault’s work is performative, provocative, and luxurious one minute, and silly, self-deprecating, and raw the next. Layers of meaning are first constructed—often through sketches, small collages of found photographs, and ink drawings—then information is intentionally wiped away, removed, torn apart, or erased.

Image of artwork from Fred Spina's Perimeter's Ridge

Perimeter’s Ridge

The Alberta Society of Artists presents an exhibition of paintings, poems, and stories by Ferdinando Spina. Spina’s art doesn’t portray subjects at their prettiest; being pretty is not the point. He cultivates a milieu of ambiguity with characters that are in their intentions and motivations vague.
