    Jason Cusator ('06) will be holding his first solo exhibition, This Exists. The Canadian artist spent his youth growing up in rural BC and the Yukon and took to art at a young age, finding it a grounding escape in periods of change and uncertainty. Working primarily in acrylic and oil on non-figurative abstract paintings, his work is at times dark with an undertone of vibrancy, all the while remaining playful. For Jason, abstract allows for the expression of what cannot be articulated in other mediums.

    This Exists
    434 Columbia Street, Vancouver BC
    September 30 - October 12 | 11am-7pm daily (6pm on Sundays)

    New Materials | Nýtt Efni is a solo exhibition featuring David Lin's ('13) cumulative works in Northern Iceland at the Listhús í Fjallabyggð Art Space.

    Lin likes to display a sense of humor and dedication in his works, utilizing a mixture of purpose-made or found materials either as a trace or carnate. Perhaps each of his works start out as ready-made of some natural force, and seeing something special in it, he presents the object in a new context and as new materials.
