This event has ended.

One of the most innovative artists working in North America today, Gord Peteran has launched a boundary-crossing career, opening up the category of furniture to an unprecedented range of psychological and conceptual content. Peteran's work does not easily fit into the conventional categories of contemporary art, design, decorative art, or craft. He calls his pieces "furnitural," a made-up term that suggests his unique relationship with sculpture. “The area between the intimate objects of the home and the psyche,” he has said, "is exactly where any great sculptor would want their work performing. This is what sculpture claims it wants, but has never had the wherewithal to do. I don’t see my work as sculptural furniture; I see it as the only place to point my arrow." Join Gord on a personal tour through the gallery, delving into the concepts and process involved in creating his unique works.
