Opening Reception
Thursday May 3, 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. (artists in attendance)

Circuit Gallery is proud to present SCENES FROM HERE as a Featured Exhibition in the 2012 Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival.

SCENES FROM HERE presents the work of two photographers, Eamon Mac Mahon and Jim Verburg, whose considerably different interests in the natural landscape both seem predicated on a sense of disconnect and loss. This exhibition seeks to bring forward something of our complex and ambiguous relationship with nature, its role in our imaginary (specifically as represented in landscape) and our different experience and understanding of its reality (its strength and fragility).

September 15 - October 22, 2011
Opening Reception: Thursday September 15, 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.

Circuit Gallery at Gallery 345
345 Sorauren Avenue, Toronto, Canada

 

Circuit Gallery is pleased to present INTANGIBLES, a group exhibition of work by three photographers who all, in their own way, attempt to give representation to something experienced, perceived or felt, but not otherwise tangible—be it the phenomena of light, color, energy or the more transcendent, indeed spiritual state of being.

From his project In Dust, Robert Canali gives us a series of highly abstract and beautiful images about light and its corollary colour. S. Billie Mandle’s work also relies heavily on the representation of light and color, in this case as metaphor, for spirituality and transcendence in her exquisite photographs of the interiors of catholic confessionals. And finally, like other artists attempting to give representation to the "sublime", Wayne Dunkley uses photography to capture something of the intangible, specifically something of his embodied and emotional connection to the landscape.

Contact 2011 Alejandro Cartagena Suburbia Mexicana Photographs

Opening Reception
Thursday May 5, 7:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. (artist in attendance)

Artist's Talk + Book Signing
Saturday, May 7 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.

Circuit Gallery at Gallery 345
345 Sorauren Avenue, Toronto, Canada

 

Circuit Gallery is proud to present, as a Featured Exhibition in the 2011 Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival, a solo exhibition of large-format work by Mexican-based photographer Alejandro Cartagena from his acclaimed project entitled Suburbia Mexicana: Cause and Effect (2006 – 2009). The exhibition features for the first time in Canada, works drawn from the project's constituent parts – Urban Holes, Fragmented Cities, Lost Rivers, People of Suburbia.

Suburbia Mexicana is a documentary project deeply rooted in the local and the particular, in the artist's own experience living and working in the northern Mexican city of Monterrey. It is an ambitious and committed project that seeks to tell the complex story of the region's rapid suburban expansion: from urban gentrification and inner-city ‘ghettoization,’ to the seemingly unplanned and unhampered suburban sprawl emanating from many of its fast growing cities, including the environmental consequences.

Circuit Gallery is pleased to present Distant Smoke, a solo exhibition of eleven large scale photographs by Seattle artist Bill Finger. This will be his first solo exhibition in Toronto.

Creating images that explore both television crime drama and the photographer as “unreliable narrator,” Bill Finger's photographs elaborately play with both fiction and reality. Within each image Finger evokes and entwines memories of specific places from his childhood with those of the Hollywood movie sets he has worked on during a 20 year career as a motion picture Assistant Cameraman.
