Press Statement

ArtHatch presents two distinctive new exhibits entitled "Labours of the Months" by Tim Vermeulen and "Vignettes" by Ivan Unwin. These two extraordinary artists will display inspired works that provoke surreal visions and complex imagination, by captivating the viewer with their profound intellect. Drawing inspiration from the popular Medieval and Renaissance theme of "Labours of the Months", Tim Vermeulen takes the traditional labours as a springboard for investigating a contemporary world of contradictions, polarities, and paradox. Vermeulen says, "My work is part of a process of wrestling for self-discovery through autobiographical narratives, in many cases involving self-portraiture." Using the human form, patterns that echo M.C. Escher, and a touch of political theory, Ivan Unwin has created a masterpiece with his new series of paintings. With a broad artistic background in the British Art Scene, this now Canadian artist is successfully exploring his talents as a traditional visual artist. The Opening Reception will be held on Saturday, November 12, 2011 from 6-10pm with Live Music, complimentary Stone Brewery Beer for guests 21 of age or older. ArtHatch is a 7000 square foot building which houses the front gallery: exhibitions changing monthly, "The Alley," featuring new and previous works from over 75 artists, the teen room featuring artwork by 6 local teens, 14 artist studios, ranging in size from 150 to 800 square feet, featuring the work of over 28 local artists, and "The Lounge", containing 8 walls featuring local artists. The front gallery features contemporary and cutting edge artwork.
