Annual Guest Curated Exhibition
by Simone Rojas-Pick & Chad Wolfond

June 22 – July 10, 2022
Opening Reception: Friday, June 24th, 6 to 9 pm (See phots below)
Continuing online until September 22nd

For Propeller Gallery’s 2022 Annual Curated Exhibition, artists were invited to reflect and respond to how uncertainty, instability and perhaps failure can act as an impetus for artistic experimentation and innovation.

There is an old Yiddish parable: “Man Plans, and God Laughs.” Certainly, the last two years have elucidated the truth of such a statement. Despite our most careful planning, even our best-laid plans can be unexpectedly upended. As guest curators, we chose to lean into this idea as a call to action for artists to reflect on their own experiences during the pandemic. More importantly, we wanted to shed a light on how uncertainty and doubt can be a powerful catalyst for creativity and experimentation.

There, his passion for the arts grew stronger and became the catalyst that sparked his support and promotion of arts education, a commitment that now spans over thirty years. Exhibiting installation, sculpture, painting and experimental photography, Wolfond has established a reputation for being a risk taker, fostering new and exciting talent. He is a strong supporter of artists developing their own creative language and unique perspectives. When not at the gallery, Wolfond can be found expanding his cultural reach as the Chairman of 918 Bathurst Centre for Culture, Arts, Media and Education.
