Martin Bennett / WHEN I CAN NO LONGER LAY WASTE TO WHAT IS ALREADY RUINED: PART ONE – THESE THINGS HAPPEN
Opening Reception / May 3 5-7 PM / Artist in Attendance
Exhibition / May 3 – June 15, 2019
JHG invites you to join us on May 3rd, between 5-7 pm for Martin Bennett’s opening reception of When I Can No Longer Lay Waste to What is Already Ruined: Part One – These Things Happen.
Born in 1970, in Winchester, England, Martin & his family immigrated to Canada only five years later. Bennett graduated from the Alberta College of Art and Design in 1992 & since has exhibited across North America & Europe. This extensive body of work is a reflection of Martin’s formative years in Calgary & the rich characters, which had an immense influence on his life’s path & career. Today, Martin primarily divides his time between Canada, England & Italy. His works can be found in the Alberta Foundation for the Arts, the Glenbow Museum, RBC Financial & many more. Martin is represented by Birch Contemporary in Toronto, Wilding Cran Gallery in L.A, and Jarvis Hall Gallery in Calgary.
This is Martin’s first solo exhibition in Calgary since January 2011. Therefore we hope you will join us in celebrating this evening & this pivotal body of work. A special thank you to Martin for his contribution of the booklet & poster that is to accompany this exhibition.
