The gallery is open daily from 2:00PM to 6:00PM.
Eleven More Sounds is a body of work which focuses on sound and perception. The artworks throughout this exhibition highlight various sound events. Some works examine sounds that come from unexpected sources such as vacuum cleaners and household furniture. Others are silent pieces using visual language to describe sound.
Kilpatrick is a thesis student at Brandon University, studying toward a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. Kilpatrick is also a touring musician who performs internationally under the stage moniker “Shotgun Jimmie.”
The artworks in this exhibition combine elements of performance, sculpture, video, installation and sound art. Eleven More Sounds is a body of work that allows sounds to be perceived as a material thing that can be seen and touched.
It’s sure to be great, so come out and enjoy some art!
