Alison Smith-Welsh Vernissage
Thursday November 10th, 2011
6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Alison Smith-Welsh is an Ottawa artist who fabricates her fabulous metal assemblages by reusing and reinventing uses for discarded materials which she obsessively collects. Alison Smith-Welsh will first draw you in with whimsy, then impress and entertain you with her astonishing mechanical skill, her gimlet eye and a sense of humour that is at once full of irony, wit and intelligence. Smith-Welsh creates modern, even futuristic sculptures out of materials and items that the viewer will find familiar and nostalgic, then torques them with a twist that is appealing, amusing and thought-provoking.
This cutting-edge Canadian artist has an established following through shows at Cube Gallery, Gallery 101, Galerie Montcalm and the Ottawa School of Art.
