Ronald Bloore: Black and White

Opening January 31
Art Gallery

Winter Exhibitions Reception:  
Sunday Feb 24 | 1:30 - 4 p.m.

Black and white image with geometric shapesThis exhibition explores the compositional space created by a leading member of the Regina Five; a group of artists who challenged the conventions of Canadian painting during the 1960s. This selection of works from PAMA's collection brings together a lesser known vein of the artist's oeuvre and provides PAMA with an opportunity to research and present new ideas on this body of work. This collection of works shows Bloore maintaining his structural compositional focus while emphasizing his hard-edged approach to abstract forms (rooted in architectural forms) through the use of colour and space or presence and absence within the field.
