Robert Lynds Gallery is pleased to announce the "Third Annual Frontlines Competition: First, Again". RLG’s Frontlines Competition is an opportunity for emerging artists to experience working with a commercial art gallery, add to their CV’s, and showcase their work in a group exhibition. In turn, Frontlines offers audiences the chance to gain insight into the working process of artists who are in the midst of launching their careers, pursuing new directions, and defining their artistic practices. The competition offers awards for First Prize, as well as the Populist Vote Recipient which is determined by gallery visitors. Past winners include: Chad P. Murray, Cameron McLellan, Willie Seo, Mira Song and Jaedan Chayce Leimert.
RLG Out Of Town Guests: Rachel Vanderzwet, Mandy Lyn Perez & Nathalie Quagliotto
Exhibition Opening: June 30 @ 7:30pm
Exhibition Date: June 30 - August 1, 2015
Robert Lynds Gallery is pleased to present the work of Rachel Vanderzwet, Mandy Lyn Perez, and Nathalie Quagliotto in the group-exhibition “Out Of Town Guests”. The exhibition will consist of painting, sculpture, and neon works addressing themes of quirk and humor through the artists’ playful approach to art making. The process-based paintings of Vanderzwet and Perez concentrate on the visual signature and language occurring in painting. Guided by intuition and material investigations, their work references quotidian delights while poised on the outskirts of recognition. Quagliotto’s sculpture and neon work creates comical disruptions through the reconfiguration of common public objects associated with disuse, strict social regulations, safety, and risk.
Rachel Vanderzwet is an MFA candidate at the University of Victoria and has an Honours BA in Studio Art from the University of Guelph. Rachel has shown nationally in Guelph, Toronto and Vancouver, is currently living in Victoria and is represented by RLG. Mandy Lyn Perez recently received her BA from the University of California Los Angeles, and lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. Nathalie Quagliotto is a Toronto based conceptual artist, holding a MFA from the University of Waterloo from 2009 and a BFA from Concordia University from 2007.
