Opening Reception: Thursday, January 11, 5-8 PM
Quiet Stories from Canadian Places is a national touring exhibition created in response to Canada's 150th anniversary celebration. Cline's work shifts the traditional role that painting has played in documenting history through official portraiture and pivotal historical moments, to documenting Canadian places that are significant to everyday people and simple moments. Over the past 10 years, Cline has been quietly gathering stories from communities across Canada , collecting personal and regional histories. Using the experiences of everyday people as her inspiration, Cline documents Canadian places through site, sound and memeory, creating a "multiplicity of experience."
The resulting exhibition features approximately fifty paintings interspersed with audio stories that create a dynamic narrative space filled with images and soundscapes.
This exhibition will be split between Slate Fine Art Gallery and the Sherwood Art Gallery in Regina.
