    Like a Rolling Stone is an exhibition about rock and rock. Conflating geology and rock music, it considers the ways in which two seemingly unrelated subjects linked by the same homograph share associations and points of contact that are both concrete and implied. Emerging artists, artists with international reputations and iconic artists are brought together in an exhibition that includes painting, photography, sculpture, video and documentation of performances.

    Lagarfljót Environs: Between the Visible and the Invisible

    A talk about two, one-month residencies in 2001 and 2014 at Skriduklaustur, Iceland, regarding photography and ecology. Aside from a few meanders to some local essentrics, the emphasis will be on the harnessing of and the transformation of nature as evidenced by the recent construction of Kárahnjúkar Dam, the largest of its type in Europe, and the resultant alteration to the aquatic colour spectrum of Lagarfljót Lake.

    Join us for a lunch hour talk with visiting artist Cynthia Camlin

    All welcome!  

    Cynthia Camlin’s intricate and stunning work reacts to icebergs, glaciers and remote environments, while bridging landscape and abstraction. Her pictures use chance procedures and traditional painting techniques in watercolour and acrylic paint to imagine water, ice, and earth – from crystalline patterns at the microscopic level, to the formation and destruction of immense landscapes. She interprets weather, erosion, cracking and melting through visual metaphor and her interest in the growing significance of ice as measures for climate change.

    The Charles H. Scott Gallery and READ Books are pleased to announce After Hours, a new series of projections by artists presented in the bookstore window.

    For the project, artists, designers, writers, musicians and curators have selected films and videos, created YouTube playlists or put together slideshows to be screened during the winter months from sunset until midnight. The series kicks off with a staff pick, the project’s namesake After Hours (1985), Martin Scorsese’s dark comedy that follows the misadventures of an uptight office worker as he attempts to return home from a night out in New York City’s SoHo arts district. What ensues is a series of absurd coincidences in a bizarre underworld of outlandish artists and Kafkaesque diversions and traps.
