Public Invited to View Current Exhibition Threading Perennials by Oli Goldsmith at Art Gallery of Northumberland

In Upcoming Events

The Art Gallery of Northumberland (AGN) is pleased to invite the public to view current solo exhibition, Threading Perennials, showcasing 23 artworks by artist Oli Goldsmith, opening Saturday, January 14, 2023, and closing March 25, 2023.

The Threading Perennials exhibition hosts 23 mixed media artworks finished in resin on wood panels and invites its audience into a playful world of adventure that is as evocative as it is transitory. Up to 100 images can be found in one single composite work with Sworls reinventing visual space as a metaphor for one’s spatial perception in today’s world. The exhibition is a multi-sensory experience that encourages the viewer to stretch their mind as they take in the details, images, words, and transitionary experiences relayed in the art.

“This exhibition will not let go of you. A million visual cues pulling you into the narrative of one artwork alone will leave you contemplating the tricomplexity’s of the work itself,” said Olinda Casimiro, Executive Director of the Art Gallery of Northumberland. “The art is fluid; the mood is hyper yet appealing, and the process is speckled with symbolic and nonsensical cues that leave the meaning behind the art up to interpretation of the viewer.”

Born in Toronto, Oli Goldsmith is a Canadian artist who defines his work as pop surrealism, exploring consciousness and the nature of reality, and is exhibited internationally. Some of his best known work designing the original packaging for the rock band Our Lady Peace’s 2000 album cover Spiritual Machines, nominated for a Juno Award for Best Album Artwork.

“A collection of several strands of recent work in my idiosyncratic manner…something of a magic carpet,” said Oli Goldsmith. “All are welcome to come check out my world. This art show celebrates that which can never be said – that said, I hope you enjoy the show!”

Additionally, domes and spheres are also on display within the gallery and are available for purchase.
