There's less than two weeks left to view the visual art exhibition Jocko Chartrand: Brightly shining/Irradiant, on display at the Art Gallery of Sudbury until Sunday, Sept. 1.
This exhibition features many works that were created in the Whitewater Lake area of Azilda as well as elsewhere in Sudbury.
Chartrand is a senior Sudbury visual artist who has been exhibiting his work since 1973 in Toronto and in the Sudbury region. He studied fine arts at Cambrian College with a focus in painting and engraving. His exhibition history includes shows with La Slague, la Galerie du Nouvel-Ontario, the Fringe Festival, and the Laurentian University Museum and Art Center (now the Art Gallery of Sudbury).
Brightly shining is an exhibition of works from 1969 to 2017. These include vibrantly coloured pastels, watercolours, acrylics and more, and showcase the unique way Jocko Chartrand approaches subjects that can be encountered in everyday life.
The exhibit features over 100 works that have been pulled from the artist’s vast personal collection.
The Art Gallery of Sudbury is glad to be able to exhibit many of Chartrand’s works that have not been exhibited before, and thanks the artist for access to his portfolios.
Pulling from a large body of work allowed us to bring together an exhibition that represents Chartrand’s exploration of subject, medium, and colour over time.
The Art Gallery of Sudbury is located at 251 John St.
The Gallery is open Tuesday – Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. For more information, please visit us online at www.artsudbury.org, or call 705-675-4871.
