Andrew BELLMoterwerks 8: Entropika10 - 29 April . 2010Reception with the Artist: Saturday 10 April from 2 to 4pm
Andrew Bell began his ongoing & evolving Moterwerks
multi media arts project in 1994. Based on an alternative version of history, Moterwerks
recounts the saga of the 'Aeronaut' -- a reluctant hero caught in a world of militant corporate conspiracies and warring tribal factions.
Following 2007's Moterwerks 7: Mechanology
, Bell's sophisticated portraiture pause, the new works in Entropika
are playful in their pop imagery. With taches of primary colour and a tactical use of repetition, Bell's new iconography is imbued with the spirit of the cultural icon of the pin-up girl.
As primary visuals, the Moterwerks
'Artwerks' are presented as historical icons -- mural relics from an alternate time. A fusion of propaganda imagery and mass media advertising, the result is reminiscent of both science fiction and antiquated past.(For those unable to attend, please be in touch to receive the Moterwerks 8: Entropika exhibition guide.)
On April 1st 2010 we launched our new Ingram Gallery website! It is still the website you remember with a whole lot more to enjoy. In recognition of March being Book Month at the gallery, we introduced our new publications page. From there we unified the site with a centralized navigation system which enables you to glide with greater ease through our artists' pages. You will also find more about who we are and why we do what we do!
For ease of reference and based on your invaluable feedback, our website now features an archive of past issues of Ingram Art News!. Our new site has inspired additional creative ideas -- so please stay tuned as new elements and images will be implemented on an ongoing basis...

Each year, we at Ingram Gallery look forward to supporting the Varley Fine Art spring auction. Many of you may have recently visited the Varley Art Gallery to experience The Automatiste Revolution: Montreal 1941-1960 -- named the number one art exhibit of 2009 by Canadian Art Magazine. ART FOR ALL: Enriching Lives with Art marks the 12th year for the auction and will be held on Thursday, May 6th. Look for works by gallery artists Kate Grigg and Barry Hodgson at this year's event.
|The light in the gallery is beautiful on a spring afternoon. Saturdays in Yorkville are bustling! The park benches are filling up and the buds on the trees hint at the glorious canopy of leaves and baskets of flowers to come. We are most excited about this Saturday and look forward to seeing you and Andrew Bell at the gallery for a great opening day.
With best wishes,
Tarah Aylward, Director
