Jeannie Thib, a Toronto-based artist, was born in North Bay, Ontario, who uses a variety of materials and media in her work – anything from laser-cut steel to leather gloves. The ideas behind her work can be found throughout the body; to put it in her own words: “The work posits the body as artifact, and as a region of the imagination — a territory of uncertainty.” This exhibition will be an assortment of work that was produced throughout the 1990s. Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Saturday
