Arnold Zageris: On the Labrador
Opening Reception: Friday September 14, 7 – 9 pm
Exhibition Sponsors: Adventure Canada and the Nunatsiavut Government
A series of thirty-one large colour photographs make up Arnold Zageris: On the Labrador, the result of more than two decades of excursions to the Torngat Mountains in Labrador. In On the Labrador Zageris shows us a vast geographical region with thin soil and abundant mineral resources and tenacious ecosystems. The imagery is recognizable yet surprisingly abstract.
Arnold Zageris holds a Bachelor’s of Science from Loyola College, Montreal and a Bachelor’s of Education from the University of New Brunswick. Photographing Labrador’s distinct, northerly terrain for decades, Zageris faced the challenges of travelling across a landscape twice the area of Newfoundland to capture the rarely seen locale on a grand scale.
Exhibition and catalogue is produced in partnership with the Robert McLaughlin Art Gallery in Oshawa. The 42-page colour publication contains reproductions of Zageris’ photographs and essays by Linda Jansma and Carla Garnet.
Artist talk: Wednesday October 17, 7 – 8:30 pm
