The Union Gallery's annual silent auction theme for 2017 is PLACE/IDENTITY
Auction Dates: October 14th to November 17th
For the Fall 2017 Silent Auction, the Union Gallery asked artists to consider the relationships between the places we inhabit and the identities we construct. How do we define these places? How do we navigate our identities? On maps and in mirrors, in thoughts and on journeys - we face these questions every day, as we seek to find truth and connection.
The theme Place/Identity invited artists from both Queen's and the Kingston community to consider and interpret these questions through a contemporary lens on a canvas of 8 x 10 inches provided by the gallery.
The works will be available for bidding and located in the display case in front of the gallery in Stauffer Library. Canvasses can range from a painting surface to a frame for collage, photography or mixed media works.
