The Art Gallery will bursting with colour this June with a lively exhibition of work by artist Jaime Angelopolous.

Oblique Choreography pairs sculptural and drawings in bold, playful and organic forms.

“Known for her spirited explorations of form and colour,” guest curator Ivan Jurakic writes, “Jaime Angelopoulos’ sculptures and drawings share a complementary yet complicated relationship…. The works exhibit a kind of joyful exuberance, but they also operate on a deeper social and psychological level.”

Based in Toronto, Jaime Angelopoulos has exhibited widely in Canada and the United States. She received her MFA from York University and studied sculpture at Meadows School of the Arts in Dallas, Texas. Awarded the inaugural Hazelton Sculpture Prize in 2013, she has participated in numerous artist residencies, including at the KulttuuriKauppila Art Centre in Finland. Her work can be found in numerous collections in Canada and internationally.

Oblique Choreography opens with a public reception on Friday evening, May 31, and runs until the fourth of August. The exhibition is organised in cooperation with McMaster Museum of Art, Hamilton, and the Musée regional de Rimouski.
