Against the Grain, Burr House Gallery, Richmond Hill, ON, Aug 1 to Sept 28, 2014

Artists Timothy Hunt and Katie Argyle have forged a longtime friendship based on the exchange of art and ideas in many manifestations including mail art, one page books, collages, off-beat stories and poems, even light-based outdoor sculpture.  Now, hundreds of kilometres apart, they continue to inspire, instigate and irritate one another into a state that results in inevitable creative output. 50/50, Against the Grain, brings together the artists' unique reflections on a half century of life.  This time they are both using the medium of wood and the results cannot help but go against the grain.
