We are Three and The Mother combines two projects by artist Kerri-Lynn Reeves. The projects explore family through the use of various media, including fibre and printing techniques, and collaborative art-making with her child, Finley Rae Reeves Williams, and co-parent Aron Williams. Originally from the Virden area, Reeves's practice centres around her identity as an artist and mother, and her efforts to strike balance between the work of artmaking and the work of motherhood.

In Openings, Lisa Wood exposes the underlying tension between the socially acceptable and socially awkward behavior that emerge from these events. Using time lapse photography, Wood captured the local art community during one of these openings from the perspective of the bar and snack table. Throughout Wood's practice, she has been drawn to acts of eating and drinking because of the specific social expectations they evoke, as well as the contradictory nature of consuming food and drink in public.

Please join us for the opening reception on Thursday, May 16th at 7:30pm. Light refreshments will be provided. Free and open to the public. For more information about both exhibitions, please visit our website.
