Celebrate the launch of A Dream in the Eye: The Complete Paintings and Collages of Phyllis Webb by Phyllis Webb and edited by Stephen Collis with us at Pale Fire Gallery on December 9.
Stephen Collis and Diana Hayes will be sharing work from A Dream in the Eye and Rahat Kurd will be giving a reading in response to the work of Phyllis Webb.
About A Dream in the Eye: The Complete Paintings and Collages of Phyllis Webb:
A Dream in the Eye presents the paintings and photocollages of the brilliant poet Phyllis Webb, a major Canadian cultural figure from the 1950s through the 1980s. Webb published ten collections of poetry and prose and co-founded the CBC Radio program Ideas (in 1965). When “words abandoned” her in the early 1990s, she took up photography, photocollage, and eventually painting. Webb’s visual work in many ways responds to and expands upon concerns that she explored in her poetry: the natural world of the West Coast, global political strife, the artist’s struggle to express themself.
Attendance is free. Snacks and beverages will be provided. Please join us in welcoming this wonderful book to the world.
Phyllis Webb’s art will be displayed at Pale Fire Gallery on December 9 and 10 from 12:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m., stop by to visit her work.
