A Pea Can Be Chopped Up and Reassembled Into The Sun: Phomohobes, Paul Robles, Gerry Ruecker, Rhayne Vermette
essay by exhibition curator Sandee Moore
What do the magician, the mathematician and the collage artist all have in common? Exhibition curator Sandee Moore connects how these three figures cut up and reassemble bits of the world to create more than what they've started with. She carves up the exhibition into an imagined set of artists materials - the cut, the rabbit/duck, the frame, infinity, the impossible - and describes how artists working in collage create more than the sum of their assembled materials, just as the Banach-Tarski paradox from theoretical geometry proves that a sphere can be cut into disjoint subsets and reassembled to create a greater volume than the original sphere.

Especially for the Culture Days edition of our Still Life Sundays, the AGR is offering beginner and experienced artists the unique challenge of drawing honeybee-altered still life compositions in a multilayered drawing process. The online workshop will be led by George Glenn, who, under the guidance of Aganetha Dyck, offered honeybees several groupings of objects, which the bees have been busy re-shaping with whimsical frills of honeycomb over the last two summers. Glenn, a Prince Albert-based artist and instructor, was Dyck's first art teacher, will lead participants through observing and drawing these unique still life compositions through live, online drawing session. Inspired self-sufficiency, less toxic art making processes and by the wondrous materials that bees create, Glenn will lead Still Life Sunday participants through creating their own oil pastels to layer with graphite in a multi-step drawing process.

Many people yearn for and desire a country life; some people are fortunate enough to achieve it. The works in this exhibition are from rural artists who love to breathe the country air.
Founded in 2012 to support artists residing East of Last Mountain Lake, The Last Mountain Artists’ Collective (LMAC) provides support and camaraderie to our members while improving our visibility. LMAC members express themselves in a variety of media.

Between Us refers to the distances and differences between us, especially evident during social isolation due to COVID-19. The project title also refers to the wondrous experiences that bind us together; "us" includes humans and non-human collaborators.
