Fall Exhibition Opening Reception at Oakville Galleries

Oakville Galleries is pleased to present our fall exhibition by Canadian artist Sascha Braunig. On view at both gallery sites, Lay Figure brings together new and recent works for her first solo exhibition in a museum in Canada.

You're invited to the opening reception!

Please join us on Sunday, 2 October 2022 at Centennial Square (2 – 3:30 PM) and in Gairloch Gardens (3:30 – 5 PM). Shuttle bus service will run between the Galleries. All are welcome. Refreshments will be served.

The artist will be in attendance. Reception remarks at approximately 3:45 PM in Gairloch Gardens.

Sascha Braunig's paintings and drawings are exercises in colour, form, and illusion. In this exhibition, the US-based artist brings together works that are based on the compositional motif of figures engaged in conflict with a dress-like structure. These works use material qualities to analogize an immaterial idea: the feeling of struggling with a system more powerful than you, in which you are also deeply entangled.

A recent New York City exhibition of Braunig's work received significant media attention and acclaim. Featuring loans from private collections across the United States, Europe, and Asia. Braunig's exhibition at Oakville Galleries presents a highly evocative suite of works that demonstrate Braunig's singular vision and talent.
