Anna Gaby-Trotz is a Toronto-based printmaker and photographer. Through her art, she intends to bring the landscape forward into people’s consciousness by showing the fragile beauty that still exists in the most remote parts of Canada.
Playful Tangents is a group exhibition featuring new works by artists who previously worked at Open Studio under the auspices of the Visiting Artist Residencies: Suzanne Nacha (2008 – 09), Endi Poskovic (2008 – 09), and Suzie Smith (2012 – 13).
Jeannette Nguyen’s work is illustrative in style, comical with strokes of whimsy. She works with themes revolving around subconscious anxieties often pertaining to nature, animals, the environment and our human relationship to these things.
Each year Open Studio selects four professional artists with or without printmaking experience to create traditional and/or experimental works in the print medium of their choice, working collaboratively with a print media artist.
