The evolution of line
Group Show Drawings from Past and Present
July 18 – Aug 8, 2009
The Evolution of Line brings together a wide selection of work ranging from original drawings dating from the 19th and early 20th Centuries to current contemporary images. Included are British, Canadian and American landscapes and portraits, along with more recent works from BC. Images by James Pattison Cockburn, Arthur Lindner, Donald Jarvis, Llewellyn Petley-Jones and Jack Shadbolt are featured alongside drawings by six contemporary Gallery artists:Thomas Anfield, Andra Ghecevici, Pilar Mehlis, Cynthia Nugent, Scott Plear RCA and Duncan Regehr RCA In celebration of the Drawn Festival, Saturday July 25th, Thomas Anfield will perform The Post Cecil Taylor Garage Music Choir featuring Vancouver-based jazz vocalists Kate Hammett-Vaughan, Soressa Gardner, prOphecy Sun and Doe Bender. In this quirky multidisciplinary piece, Thomas reverses the old standby of drawing to music and conducts performers through a series of live calligraphic gestures. The format was a hit at last year’s Voxy Choir presentation at VCC and has been used to great success with the Post Cecil Taylor Garage Music Orchestra, whom Thomas has led in performances at the New Music across America and the Vancouver International jazz festivals.
