Lake View

Billboards Dot Staple Goods Walls for 'Jack Lake, Redux': Art Review



In the 1920’s in Southern Ontario, homebuilder Jack Lake autographed his handiwork by signing a framing board inside the home he’d just built. Upon renovating that home, artist Jack Niven discovered the indexical and personal imprint and took it up like a thrift store jacket. Thanks to this random, years-old encounter, we now have “Jack Lake, Redux” posited onto two grateful walls at Staple Goods throughout the month of March and early April.


Saving Face

Review: Juan Logan's 'Save You' at the Ogden Museum



Juan Logan’s I’ll Save You Tomorrow was recently installed on the fourth floor of the Ogden in the form of twenty-three canvas works, one installation and two sculptures-in-the-round.  The Ogden accurately describes Logan as an artist who repeats “personal iconic symbols” but some of those symbols aren’t readily apparent in Save You.
