This new sculptural work at Ross Creek brought wit and whimsy to the gallery in a new way. Combining natural and man-made materials into a structure and shadows that played with the idea of travel, wonder and wilderness, it was created in and for our space by Ontario artist Lauren Hall. LAUREN HALL received her BA in Fine Arts from the University of Waterloo in 2006. She has exhibited her work nationally and internationally with recent exhibitions at YYZ Artists’ Outlet and Peak Galleries, Toronto; Cambridge Galleries, Cambridge, and Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien, Berlin. She is the recipient of numerous grants and awards, including an emerging artist grant from Ontario Arts Council. She was recently awarded a fellowship to attend the Vermont Studio Center and is a former artist in residence at Ox-Bow School of the Arts. Reviews of her work have appeared in Canadian Art Online, The Toronto Star, C Magazine, and The Globe and Mail. She lives in Toronto.
