Jon Sasaki: Things Saved For A Rainy Day
May 13 – September 4, 2017
- Location: Varley Art Gallery
- 216 Main Street Unionville map
As part of Present | Perfect | Continuous, a yearlong exhibition celebrating the Varley Art Gallery’s 20th anniversary, Jon Sasaki was invited to create new work in response to our archival holdings. An unused panel from Varley's studio left in stormy weather is a meditation on the depictions of atmospheric elements in Varley’s paintings and on the physical environment they are stored and displayed in. Varley's junk drawer of 1969 made useful in the present is an attempt to imbue a collection of random ‘bits and pieces’ with a new purpose.
