Wayne Gretzky Rocks!
Group Show
July 5, 2008 - August 23, 2008
Opening Reception:  Samantha Walrod in attendance

Q: How do you get a bunch of Canadians to leave a room?
A: You say: "Please leave the room."

We're polite, we're liberal, we're the nation up north with the big land mass but very few people. These are the concepts that often determine how the rest of the world perceives us. Ask any Canadian, however, about how we view ourselves and they would say that... in a nutshell… most Canadians are pretty darn funny. Hilarious, in fact. We're a precocious, self-deprecating nation amused by the idea that the world thinks that we're so unflinchingly pleasant.

So what does it truly mean to be Canadian? This will be the question explored by the artists in Wayne Gretzky Rocks! From deer heads to cowboys to the great Canadian landscape, this exhibition will explore of complex idea of Canadian-ness.

Included artists: Dianne Bos, Joe Fleming, Yechel Gagnon, Jeff Nachtigall, Joshua Jensen-Nagle, Colleen Philippi, David Robinson, Samantha Walrod
