Mapping Me In opens July 4 at Kelowna Art Gallery

Wally Dion will be showing recent works made up from a massing together of smaller, identical components and involve 'tracks.'

Wally Dion

The Kelowna Art Gallery’s One on One series is chosen every spring by an emerging Canadian First Nations curator who selects an emerging Canadian First Nations artist to work with.

This year KAG is pleased to be working with Saskatoon-based curator Felicia Gay, who has selected artist Wally Dion for the exhibition. He is also from Saskatoon but has recently been dividing his time between there and Binghamton, New York.

Dion will be showing recent works, produced in 2013 and 2014, that are made up from a massing together of smaller, identical components and involve ‘tracks’ that have been filled with paint. Dion likes to work with small units that he fits together like puzzle pieces to create his final works.

The One-on-One series is conceived of as an open-ended, collaborative project. It is intended that both the curator and artist be on hand for the opening of the exhibition.

Each exhibition is accompanied by a web-based publication.

Wally Dion’s art is at the Kelowna Art Gallery July 4 to Sept. 20.

The Kelowna Art Gallery is at 1315 Water Street in Kelowna’s Cultural district.
