Dale Dunning: Unravelling
a solo exhibition, March 11 – April 17, 2016
Sivarulrasa Gallery, Almonte

Unravelling… the title of this show suggests many things: the physical transformation of raw materials into something beautiful in the hands of an exceptionally gifted artist; the unravelling of our bodies and minds as we age and mature; the untangling of the mysteries of the human condition – an exploration that art celebrates. In Unravelling, Sivarulrasa Gallery presents 23 fascinating works in bronze, aluminum, steel, and glass by sculptor Dale Dunning, spanning four decades of relentless creativity – including several new works that are being exhibited for the first time. Curated by Sanjeev Sivarulrasa, the exhibition showcases Dunning’s remarkable versatility, his mastery of technique, and his intriguing vision.

A leading Canadian sculptor based near Almonte, Ontario, Dale Dunning earned his BFA at Mt. Allison University in New Brunswick and his MFA at Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan. In decades of work since then, he has exhibited in many solo and group shows including in Ottawa, Montreal, Toronto, Calgary and New York. He is the recipient of awards from the Canada Council and the Town of Mississippi Mills. His work is held in private collections worldwide, and in numerous public collections, including the City of Ottawa, the National Library in Ottawa, and the Musée des Beaux Arts in Montreal.

Vernissage/Meet the Artist: Sunday March 20, 2016, 2pm-5pm. Join us to celebrate the opening of this exhibition on the first official day of Spring — our first show of the year!
