About the Exhibition

What story does a pathway tell? How do paths connect us?  

Paths features artwork by twenty-two Canadian artists exploring paths, both real and imagined, through the mediums of painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, collage and printmaking. The exhibited works show us that a path can be used to communicate a direction, a line of thought or a plan for action. Paths can also be seen in representations of the natural world, taking the form of forest trails, migratory patterns, maps and waterways, as well as within our built environment. We can find pathways through abstraction by exploring gesture, pattern, line and form and we can seek our own paths of understanding through personal journeys and the creative process.  

Paths, a teaching exhibition organized and circulated by Artists for Kids and the Gordon Smith Gallery, is curated by Amelia Epp, a District 44 visual art teacher, to offer opportunities for cross-curricular, place-based inquiry as well as rich connections to social and emotional learning. 

Paths features artwork by Anne Meredith Barry​, Maxwell Bates​, BC Binning​, Wayne Eastcott and Michiko Suzuki​, Paterson Ewen​, Angela George, Graham Gillmore​, John Hartman​, A.Y. Jackson,​ Jack Jeffrey​, Russna Kaur, Mario Merola, Guido Molinari​, Josie Papialuk​, Ross Penhall​, Bill Reid​, Arnold Shives​, Gordon Smith​, Charlene Vickers​, Gu Xiong, and Xwa-lack-tun​.
