Garry Neill Kennedy does what he set out to do

Kennedy, American History PaintingGarry Neill Kennedy is on my top 5 people to meet. What would I say if I sat down for coffee with Mr. Kennedy? Probably nothing that he hasn’t heard before. “Mr. Kennedy, Average Size, Average Colour was my aha moment in conceptual art”, or “Where do you think conceptual art is right now?” and maybe, if I was feeling really corny, I would thank him for the immeasurable contribution to conceptual art, and artouteast.

Until April 1, 2012, the Louise and Reuben-Cohen Art Gallery at the Université de Moncton presents Garry Neill Kennedy: Photoworks 1969 – 2011. Kennedy’s first exhibition focusing on photography aims to foster a better understanding of the work of the artist as a whole and of his contribution to the evolution of contemporary art in Canada and in the Atlantic region.

The Louise and Reuben-Cohen Art Gallery is located at 405 Université Avenue, in the Clément Cormier building on the Université de Moncton campus. Gallery hours are 1 PM to 4:30 PM, Tuesday to Friday, and 1 PM to 4 PM on Saturday and Sunday.  Admission is free.  For more information on the Louise and Reuben-Cohen Art Gallery and its activities, please visit the web site: www.umoncton.ca/umcm-ga or find us on Facebook.  The gallery can be reached by phone: (506) 858-4088 or by email: galrc@umoncton.ca.
