Permanent Collection

Curated by Tim van Wijk

February 2 - April 6, 2019

The Gallery 2 permanent collection contains works spanning a broad spectrum of styles and mediums. For this exhibition, Gallery 2’s director/curator has selected work on the cusp of the transition from the clarity of high modernism to the messy middle of post-modernism and beyond. From hard edge colour field acrylics and abstract serigraphs to photo collage and conceptual assemblies, the range of work in the collection is impressive. Grand Forks Modern juxtaposes pieces by locally significant artists with more nationally recognized works, situating the Gallery 2 permanent collection and the regional artistic activity of the Boundary within the larger art narrative of the late 20th century.
