States of Being: Works by contemporary Canadian women selected from the permanent collection

19 August – 2 October, 2005

Susan G. Scott, As For Me, I Still Have You Here, 1994

By their titles, their imagery or their physical presentation, these works suggest a variety of emotional or metaphysical states of being. Ranging widely in style and content, from Susan Scott’s huge painted homage to the poet Rimbaud As for me, I still have you here and Michele Drouin’s stunning abstract La poète frappe à la porte to delicate works on paper by Nancy Stevens and Christine Ross (Memory Places and Meditations), each work suggests overt or subtle conditions of desire and sublimation. Selected from the permanent collection by Susan Gibson Garvey, the works have all been acquired within the past 15 years.
