Our next exhibition at Hand Held is 'Hidden Facets', a collaborative by Abby Seymour and Katherine Wheeler. Both have posted images of work for the exhibition on their blogs and things seem to be coming along beautifully. I think this is going to be a very exciting show!

More Rogue Ideas Opening








Selena de Carvalho's 'More Rogue Ideas' opened Wednesday eve to a great crowd of admirers and keen interest. This an exhibition of objects, effigies and oddities, macabre miscellany and ethereal beauty held together in a collection of dark wood and found frames captured in museum silence.

Tea with Chloe Vallance

We finished up Chloe Vallance's exhibition on Saturday with an excellent turn out for 'tea with the artist'. A great opportunity to meet and chat with the artist, Chloe had many fans keen to listen as she described her process, technique and inspiration.

"Winged": @ 1305






Opening Final Friday, February 26th is Winged, new work by local artist Kelly Frigard.

The exhibition opens with a catered reception hosted by 1305 Gallery and the Artist on February 26th from 6-11 pm. The show runs through March 21st, with gallery hours Tuesday- Saturday: 11-3, or by appointment.

Winged, Kelly Frigard's second exhibition of new work at 1305 Gallery features pieces showcasing her masterful use of fiber and ceramic media to create delicate and whimsical forms. In her February 2006 exhibition, Wish, Frigard combined hand dyed and felted wool with hand embroidery to create wall-mounted scenes and figures that were both melancholy and warm. The resulting exhibit proved ideal for a winter show.

Now in February of this year, Frigard continues to work in traditional methods of hand felting and hand embroidery, also employing her training in ceramic sculpture and prepared animal skins and furs. These media mix to create soft, fragile, idyllic forms that are at once pulled from nature and taught between our world and that of the natural and unstained. It is a delight to once again showcase her talent in the gallery, bringing a little corner of warmth to our frozen city.

Please join us on Final Friday for the opening of Kelly Frigard's exhibition Winged, and that of 1305 Gallery's 2010 exhibition year.

Remember: There's always plenty of Good Food, Good Friends, and Great Art when you come to Final Fridays at 1305!

Next Up



Selena de Carvalho's new exhibition 'More Rogue Ideas' will open Wednesday Feb 10th 6-8pm. Created from an evocative palette of printed work, gleaned materials, drawn and sculptural works, Selena explores the deeply mysterious world we inhabit.

'The wild and unpredictable weather patterns, El Nino and La Nina; are both devastating and humbling in their temperament. El Nino translates from spanish as boy child & La Nina as girl child. By personifying these elemental attributes of destruction and enchantment in the form of children I am creating a poetic narrative that reflects on human interaction with our environment.'
