Since opening Likely General Gallery in the back of the shop in late 2013, we've had 30+ artists and vendors utilize the space. The gallery presents new work once a month and openings are typically the first Thursday of every month. We strive to be an open and inclusive space for up-and-coming artists to experiment with solo or collaborative shows. The gallery is fully booked until September 2017, but please don't hesitate to contact us with a proposal.

PUBLIC HOUSE PRIVATE LIFE | ALEC SUTHERLAND | LIKELY GENERAL GALLERY

 

MAR 2nd - MAR 31st,  RECEPTION MAR 2nd, 6-9
Six textiles that address personal identity, social identity, and mental health. How do we negotiate privacy while we cultivate our public personae? What do we share and what do we share? How do the spaces we inhabit inform our behaviour and our sense of self? What do chemicals have to do with it anyway? These weavings are personally informed by my experiences around mental health and the taboo.

PERENNIAL | SARAH CANNON | LIKELY GENERAL GALLERY
JAN 3rd - Feb 7th,  RECEPTION JAN. 5th, 6-9

Perennial is an exercise in self-care. Through the process of painting, Cannon develops characters to reflect on and respond to her own personal experiences with society’s imposed gender stereotypes, female internalized misogyny and subsequent expressive suppression. Cannon identifies self-imposed solitary confinement, emotional distancing and isolation as significant side-effects of female expressive suppression; we are provided a glimpse of lone female archetypes and quiet moments alone.

Perennials are the ubiquitous form of plant life we refuse to accept. We trim them down, cut them back. Under-appreciated, undervalued, resilient and determined. Albeit limp and fragile; they bloom between the cracks.
