Craig Scott Gallery presents Julie Tremblay at upART Contemporary Art Fair @ The Gladstone Hotel (1214 Queen West at Gladstone), Thursday, Oct 2 to Sunday, Oct 5, 2008
-- upART is an installation-based art fair --
Julie Tremblay’s upART public space installation greats visitors to upART. It consists of six life-size figures from her Reflections series sculpted from cast-off industrial sheet metal; aptly described by Gary Michael Dault as "airy personages" who "take up space even as they create it", five of the works soar just below the Gladstone’s ceilings in the lobby and up the main staircase to the second floor where all other public space as well as the room installations appear.
The Tremblay works were installed today, and attracted the wonder-struck attention of Gladstone guests, restaurant visitors, and staff, virtually to a person. This is a great opportunity to view these very special works in a non-gallery space that shows their great capacity to transform an environment, whether hotel, home, or workplace.
The PREVIEW is 4-8 PM this Thursday. The $7 admission fee includes a copy of the Fair’s catalogue.
The upART Fair continues Friday (12 noon - 11 PM), Saturday (12 noon - 7 PM), and Sunday (12 noon - 5PM).
After 7PM on Saturday, until Midnight, the upART Fair is open for no admission charge as part of Scotiabank Nuit Blanche. (No catalogues are available during this period.)
