Gallery 1
An interlude, or, intelligent tan
Beth Stuart, visiting artist

An Interlude, or, intelligent tan, suggests the gallery as a space of psychic experimentation. Using the sculpture Proposal for a Viewing Apparatus (2014) as an imaginary lens through which to conjure and distort, the artist will work in the gallery over the course of the exhibition, using raw clay and Venetian plaster on the walls to develop figures and images of imaginary pasts and more hopeful futures. She will also make herself available for impromptu tarot readings, consultations on spiritual well-being from a secular skeptic, and general solidarity in questionable times.

Beth Stuart received her MFA in 2009 from the University of Guelph. In 2010, Stuart was shortlisted for the RBC Canadian Painting Competition; she received one of two honourable mentions in 2011. Her work has been featured in solo exhibitions at Latcham Gallery (Stouffville), La Centrale Galerie Powerhouse and Battat Contemporary (both in Montreal). Currently, her work may also be seen in The Painting Project, Galerie UQUAM, Montreal. Stuart lives and works in Hamilton.
