Pair of new exhibits at Macdonald Stewart Art Centre

The Macdonald Stewart Art Centre will open two new shows, one involving photos and the other involving fibres, at a reception on Thursday Jan. 24.
The 7 p.m. reception will jointly open “American Shards” by Canadian documentary photographer Phil Bergerson and “Line Rituals & Radical Knitting,” an exhibition of new work by Serbian Canadian artist Vessna Perunovich.
For years, Bergerson has photographed urban and rural America “in critical view of the state of unrest found within that social landscape,” a news release said. “The American Shards series is a poetic statement full of irony and pathos, critique and empathy.”
The show, curated by Judith Nasby, goes to April 14. Bergerson will give a talk about it at noon on March 5.
“Line Rituals & Radical Knitting,” which was curated by Dawn Owen and goes to March 31, is an exhibition of work that Perunovich created during her recent residency in New York. “Through continuous lines of ink, thread and graphite, Perunovich reinvents barriers, such as walls and fences, and represents them in soft configurations and as woven, permeable structures,” the release said.
Perunovich is set to talk about the show at noon on Feb. 26.
