Current Exhibition

Jeff Nachtigall / Barrhead Supersonic

March 26 – April 30, 2021

Jarvis Hall Gallery is delighted to present BARRHEAD SUPERSONIC an exhibition of new paintings by Saskatchewan artist Jeff Nachtigall. In his practice the artist seeks out the beauty in the ugliness found in everyday life. The work in BARRHEAD SUPERSONIC reflects on an understanding of place informed by a cold prairie winter. This experience is fed largely by Nachtigall’s return to his home province after an extended time away. The artworks are imbued with both the sense of a desire for escape and yearning to return.

March 26 – April 30, 2021

Jarvis Hall Gallery is delighted to present new work by Calgary artist Janine Hall. For many years Hall has been studying archetypes found in nature. For this exhibition, the artist’s renderings in charcoal and oil focus on the storm as a representation of turmoil and the human struggle between power and revolution. In her work, Hall integrates the spirituality she experiences during the creative process with imagery of the raw force of nature.

Janine Hall is a Calgary-based painter with a focus on intimate life-sized portraits.  Her work has been exhibited across Canada and Europe, most notably The Kingston Portrait Prize in 2005, 2007, 2011, 2017;  and in Spain for the prestigious Figurativas Portrait Competition (2019). Her work can be found in the Alberta Foundation for the Arts and numerous private collections across North America.
