Main Gallery Space
Jehra Patrick | GALERIE ABSTRACTION

Jehra Patrick’s work consists of paintings and photography based on imagery appropriated from international museum spaces and archives. Patrick’s work is inspired by the structures of arts institutions and their responsibilities for art’s development. The Main Gallery at Harcourt House will include paintings that incorporate diachronic allusions to movements and artists, as well as depicting illusionary spaces. In an artists interpretation she sees the act of collecting, preserving archival objects as activities that determine the development of arts asthetic and political site.

Adam Waldron-Blain | Two-Part Invention

Adam Waldron-Blain graduated from the University of Alberta’s fine art program in 2007. Since then he has been based in Edmonton and Glasgow. In 2011 he was artist-in-residence in the back lanes and derelict spaces of the Woodlands community in Glasgow, ran games for the IgFest Interesting Games festival in Bristol, and participated in a residency program at the Banff Centre with Icelandic artists Ragnar Kjartansson, Ásdís Sif Gunnarsdóttir and Davíð Þór Jónsson. He performed in the dusty parking lots and wide streets of downtown Edmonton in Dirt City:Dream City, a transitory public art project involving fifteen Edmonton artists curated by Kendal Henry, in July and August of 2012, and spent the winter in residence on Toronto Island and at the Banff Centre.

Voice of the Gallery
As the Artist in Residence, I have experienced firsthand the amazing opportunities for connection available to us all at Harcourt. As my year long residency nears its halfway point, I am able to take stock and as always, am incredibly thankful. The gift of time and space has allowed me to delve deeply into my materials and discover new aspects of my concept.
