TrépanierBaer Presents: Danny Singer
Canora Redux and Main Street: Towns, Villages, and Hamlets of the Great Plains
On view now at TrépanierBaer Gallery
Summer is finally here and TrépanierBaer is pleased to present a new major work by Danny Singer alongside several recent works by the artist. After photographing Canora, Saskatchewan in 2005, Singer revisits the town in Canora Redux: a work that measures over a metre in height and almost three metres in length with dramatic atmospheric effects.
The gallery is also pleased to present for purchase Main Street: Towns, Villages, and Hamlets of the Great Plains, a new beautifully illustrated monograph by Danny Singer. With a concluding essay by Grant Arnold, Audain Curator of British Columbia Art, Vancouver Art Gallery, Danny Singer’s Main Street offers an original and lasting view of the heart and soul of the North American Great Plains: its small towns, its villages, and its hamlets at the turn of the twenty-first century. Far from the maddening noise and traffic, and the hectic life of the city, here we rediscover that rural life in the hinterland still matters.
We look forward to seeing you at the gallery!
