Event Description

Walkabout Tour with artist Stu Oxley and curator Emily McKibbon: Tuesday, February 23 at 4 pm (Art Gallery of Guelph)

Long known for his exquisite intaglio monoprints, master printmaker Stu Oxley (Elora, ON) has shifted his practice to include large-scale painting. The survey exhibition “Distant Grounds” reveals Oxley’s innovations in colour and form in both mediums. His paintings and prints contain atmospheric washes of rich colour, with drips and marks emphasizing the artist’s hand and interrupting the works’ subtle tonal shifts. Presented by AGG in partnership with the MacLaren Art Centre (Barrie), “Distant Grounds” is the first solo exhibition of Oxley’s paintings to be shown in Guelph.

On display in conjunction with “Distant Grounds,” the exhibition “Artists at Riverside Studio” represents the spectrum of artists Oxley has worked with over the course of his print practice.
