See Sick

See Sick

An emotional portrayal of humanity. 

By Ryan O'Connor

Show runs until May 6th

Come in during AIH Gallery Hours - Wed - Fri (10-2:30pm), Sat (10 - 5pm)

Ryan's Artist Statement

My works are a catalogue of my thoughts and emotions laid bare - things that I could never speak out loud, but are suddenly blurted out onto the canvas. 

My art is an extension of my body and soul. Using my hands to apply paint, smudge charcoal or configure a sculpture allows a physical connection to work that I find exhilarating. By letting my thoughts flow organically from my mind, through my body and into the work - I take the chaos of my own dismal thoughts and turn them into meaning and beauty.

Stories We Share: Female Histories
Oct
22

Stories We Share: Female Histories

Female Histories is based on the public online submissions of over 30 photographs through the Stories We Share Facebook Page.

Inspired by these photos, the work features predominantly female figures in mundane, whimsical and intimate circumstances.  Using the elements of repetition, layering, outline and ghostliness, Jacqueline is interested in drawing parallels to personal and cultural memory. Using watercolour, drawing and mixed media works, she hopes to create a push-pull effect with our internal and external worlds that seem both familiar and unknown.

The inclusion of the online community within this body of work has created a collective and shared experience of nostalgia, insight and vulnerability.  We can often recognize ourselves within someone else's experience.  And this work is, in some ways, an attempt to capture the true nature of memory as it exists in many forms, including delicate clarity and vague fragmentation.

Join us for the opening of Stories We Share: Female Histories Saturday, Oct. 22nd from 7-9pm. Exhibit is on until Saturday, Nov.26th.

Super Artsy Summer Camp - Watermelon Seeds

Our Watermelon Seeds camp last year was so much fun that we decided to keep the name, but redesign the programs. Those who came last year can still count on the more playful themes, inundated with tons of colour, laughter, and collaborations with nature. The light-hearted nature of Watermelon Seeds will spill over into the textile projects done at Spool Lounge. Much of what we create in summer camp becomes the subject matter of our SPROUTS gallery show in September. See more about our SPROUTS gallery HERE:)

SOME TIMES by Blair Poulin

SOME TIMES by Blair Poulin

At Art in House we are always exploring experiences and memory surrounding photography. It seems appropriate to have an artist create an experience delving into this theme. Why are we so enamoured with the moment caught instantly, with the ephemeral and with the re-creation of our moments. Why has the artist had the impulse throughout history to create handmade memories and stories? David shields, oh so eloquently sums this up, 

“Why do you take photographs so constantly, so obsessively? Why do you collect others photographs? Why do you scavenge in secondhand shops and buy old albums of other people’s pasts?

"So that I’ll see what I've seen” 

Please join us July 16th 7-9pm for, some times….handmade photographs by Blair Poulin. Scavenge through her experiences and memory and you might just see your moments. 

A note from Blair
Photography has always been a part of my life. I have a love and impulse to use all kinds of cameras; from analog cameras to the camera on my phone. The nostalgia of the photo had me looking for ways to express this feeling but in drawing. Using today’s access to the digital print with the feeling of history, I capture then create drawings that are simple and intimate moments to savour. These become my handmade photographs.
