Artist in attendance

Since something like 1968, Ron Moppett (@70) has been making trouble in the art world. Whether he’s making paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, planning an installation, curating an exhibition, or writing a text for a catalogue, this troublemaking contrarian has forever been playing with ideas, styles, colour, surface, language, media, and a wide array of influences, literally turning them on their heads and confounding viewers’ expectations to make some of the most engaging and poetic art of our times.

In advance of his major survey exhibition titled SCULPTUR(AL), curated by Christine Sowiak for the Nickle Galleries and opening September 24, 2015, TrépanierBaer is pleased to present CONSTELLATION(S), an exhibition of new and older works. Anchored by the major painting Blues in the Night/Awakening Conscience/No Where to Go from 1979, the exhibition will also feature some 25 to 30 works on paper ranging from the late 70s through to the present.

Please join us September 10 to celebrate the opening of the 2015/2016 visual art season in Calgary, and join us in raising a glass in honour of Ron Moppett’s recent achievements.
