The invention of paper was a quintessential moment in history. Light, affordable, and resilient it changed the flow of communication and shaped our world. On it, we write, draw and paint, recording our lives and our humanity. We can build with it, cover our walls with it, eat off it, and filter our coffee through it. It is ubiquitous, versatile and malleable. It can be pressed, formed, folded, cut, and infinitely transformed.
On The Same Page: Transforming Paper
showcases 11 artists working with paper as an obsessive occupation, devotional labour and commitment to artistry expressed in this humble and familiar material. This exhibition of 2D work, sculpture, and installation elevates and transforms paper in unexpected and provocative ways.
Featuring the work of artist-curators Rachael Ashe and Connie Sabo, and fellow artists Charles Clary, Concealed Studio (Mario Sabljak and Cheryl Cheng), Gail Grinnell, Annyen Lam, Monique Martin, Leslie Pearson, Brangwynne Purcell, Martha Ritchie, Grant Withers

CityScape Community ArtSpace has a ramp immediately at the entrance that leads into our gallery which has a single-stall, genderless bathroom. Currently our front door does not have automatic buttons, but we are working to get those in place and constantly aiming to improve the accessibility of this space. Please call 604-988-6844 and we'd be happy to open the door for you.
