Opening: July 16th, 2016

Exhibition on view from July 15 - Sept. 11


Contrarieties & Counterpoints: Recent Paintings by Melanie Authier is a touring solo

exhibition curated by Robert Enright. Authier's abstract paintings present a brimming

jostle of pictorial oppositions that draw upon an expansive archive of expressionist

and hard-edge histories. This project foregrounds Authier's recent canvases as well as

works on paper, and is accompanied by a bilingual catalogue that includes an

interview with Robert Enright, and essays by Sky Goodden, Sarah Milroy and Ola

Wlusek. The Thames Art Gallery is one of 7 confirmed venues across Canada.
