Exhibit Overviews | A Sign in the Northwest Passage and In Broad Terms

I decided to go to the two exhibits, A Sign in the Northwest Passage and In Broad Terms, for they were in walking distance of each other and seemed like interesting exhibits.

The northwest passage public installation is located on the south wall of The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery(231 Queens Quay W) and will be up for display until August 21.  As I was searching for it I found out that the art exhibit is free on Wednesday Evenings between 5pm-8pm which I will definitely hit up sometime this summer.

The second exhibit, In Broad Terms, was located at Steam Whistle Brewery and I’ve always wanted to visit but never found the opportunity to do so until now.  The exhibit is located past the bar on the exposed brick.  There are 10 photographers featured at this event with interesting types of works examining human representation.  The concepts were quite interesting like putting two strangers together to portray the uncomfortable body language of the subjects. I loved the location of his exhibit for you can grab a beer and enjoy some fine pieces of art.
