What do the photographer and the painter have in common?
Barbara Brown and Dan Sharp have been partners for over 30 years, while maintaining separate studios and art practices. This exhibition is a two-person show of photographs by Brown and paintings by Sharp, to see if there are resonances, echoes, and complementarities. It is a compare and contrast exercise for the two artists to see how their art talks to each other, a dialogue or an argument of colour and form. 

Juan Geuer's  Luminous Precision
Ottawa Art Gallery, 2019
CURATOR Caroline Langill
March 9 – August 18, 2019

GROUP EXHIBITION: Barry Ace, Doug Back, Juan Geuer, Darsha Hewitt, Catherine Richards, Daniel Sharp, Michael Snow, Norman White

Canadian artist Juan Geuer’s groundbreaking work sits in the threshold between science and art. It bridges the human condition, in all its various states, and the carbon-based ecosystems and oxygenated atmospheres upon which we depend. Geuer’s work will be in dialogue with artists with whom he either collaborated, influenced, or worked with in parallel.
