Short Fictions attends to the marked and fascinating evolution of Gary Pearson’s painting over the decades he has worked as a professional artist. The Kelowna-based artist works largely in painting and drawing, with a strong graphic sensibility and a stark, spare, linear style. This exhibition will feature a focused selection of works on paper and canvas from the last 15 years, providing the opportunity to examine and reflect upon his mature work. With a few exceptions, Pearson has chosen not to paint the bucolic landscape and light of the Okanagan Valley where he lives and, instead, explores urban spaces and the everyday through a purposefully crude and repetitive style, drawing subjects and themes primarily from things seen and experienced while travelling.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a full-colour publication with critical examinations of Pearson’s work.

On Thursdays, from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., admission is FREE to everyone.
