Opening Reception:

Newzones is pleased to present our annual summer group exhibition Sunscreen - a spectacular show featuring new and new to Calgary art.

The exhibition will feature artworks by:
Joe Andoe's images, regardless of theme, are simple in their rendering yet complex in their effect, creating a dichotomy that demonstrates the artist's virtuosity with his media and his ability to engage the viewer.

Joshua Jensen-Nagle, whose recent works make use of old Polaroid film transferred to cotton rag and panel. The soft shots of barren nature topped with a slick coat of resin work together to create a warm, ephemeral landscape.

John Kissik, whose paintings are characterized by thick surfaces, aims to create abstract artworks that are both ironic and authentic.

Julian Schnabel was one of the most promoted, as well as self-promoted, and the most critically debated painter of the 1980's, Julian Schnabel may have given the art scene of the boom decade its most representative figure.

Donald Sultan has become known for his compelling visual treatment of everyday, still-life subjects on a gargantuan scale, successfully merging the best of yesterday's artistic tradition with a fresh, modern approach.

Barry Weiss is a self-taught landscape painter.His paintings are reminiscent of old world paintings but contain a unique contemporary edge

Other artists included in the exhibition are Kevin Sonmor, Don Maynard, Evelyne Brader-Frank, Sarah Nind, Jeroen Witvliet, Cathy Daley and Bill Fisher.
