City in Bloom
Exhibition: August 2 - 28, 2022
Opening : Thursday, Aug. 4, 6-8pm
Artist talk: Sunday, Aug. 21, 2pm
City in Bloom shows the everyday beauty of untended flowers and shrubs set against a backdrop of urban structures. The natural scenery intertwines with the constructed landscape, creating a kaleidoscope of colours, textures, and shapes. The unexpected result is an inner-city, rough-around-the-edges Garden of Eden.
ViewPoint Gallery and Lot Six Bar and Restaurant are collaborating to display work by ViewPoint artists beginning in August. Be sure to stop by Lot Six at 1685 Argyle Street in Halifax for a fine dining and fine art experience.

Print reviews are open to the public! Bring your prints (any size, framed or not) for a review led by a Gallery Member. If you've ever wondered what others think of your work but were too shy to ask or always received the dreaded "It's nice" response, this is your opportunity. We hope to see you there!
While masking is no longer required, all participants are encouraged to wear masks during the print review, for the safety of all participating.

Swen Bernitz (Germany)
The Tetrahedron, designed by the architect Wolfgang Christ, consists of a steel framework in the form of a walk-in pyramid and a tetrahedron, a body with four triangular surfaces. The artwork stands on a former mining dump in Bottrop, Germany. The image is part of the series Landmarks. Landmarks is a conceptual documentation of architectural art objects on former mining dumps in the Ruhr area of Germany. As the coal was extracted from underground, inevitably the surrounding rock was also mined. This waste rock was largely unsaleable and so most of it was dumped, creating artificial hills in an otherwise flat landscape. There are more than 250 spoil heaps in the Ruhr area. Through a process of rewilding, and the erection of a number of art installations, some of these piles of slag and rubble have become unlikely tourist attractions.
Born in 1970 in Berlin Friedrichshain. Self-taught, member of the BVBK Brandenburg Association of Visual Artists. Since 2008, conceptual long-term projects and series in documentary style on the themes of the built environment and urban cityscapes.
