Wayne Eastcott exhibition

Wayne Eastcott: Generation #3 1983 silkscreen

As I wrote earlier, October is a busy month for art shows here!
The Lookout Gallery, Regent College is presenting “Wayne Eastcott: Selected Works” – a survey of his printworks from 1965 to 2002.

Eastcott uses diverse mediums including riveted aluminum, silkscreening, etching and lithograph to invoke feelings of both calm and chaos as he exemplifies the dialogue between nature, humankind and technology. “I have always been intrigued by the various systems that make up the created universe as well as the relationship between chance, order, structure and randomness”, says Eastcott as he discusses his work. This exhibit covers 40 years of Eastcott’s work in printmaking and provides powerful, innovative examples of why he is recognized as one of Canada’s foremost printmakers.

This exhibition has been travelling for two years, beginning at Seymour Art Gallery, North Vancouver, and touring southern BC galleries, and has now returned to Vancouver. Selections from 50 pieces were made by the curators at each gallery to fit their space, such as at Grand Forks Art Gallery and Kootenay Gallery of Art.

The exhibition opening is on Wed. Oct.13, 2004 4:30-7:30 and runs to November 6th, 2004. The Lookout Gallery in Regent College is on the UBC campus at 5800 University Blvd., Vancouver, B.C. Hours: Monday – Friday: 8:30 am – 5:00 pm Saturday: 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm. Everyone welcome!
