The Elissa Cristall Gallery, 2245 Granville Street, on South Granville presents “sudden frost” from July 2 to August 14, 2010, an exhibition of eight distinguished Canadian artists.

Inspired by a passage from T.S. Eliot’s ‘The Waste Land’ this exhibition is curated by gallery artist Pete Smith and features the work of guest artists: Michel Daigneault, Sky Glabush, Will Gorlitz, Patrick Mahon, David Merritt, Jenn E Norton, Kevin Rodgers and Nicole Vogelzang.

The works in the exhibition are diverse in material and in concept and include painting, drawing, print-making, sculpture and video. The works share a whimsical yet somber lyricism that gives meaningful glimpses into the frenzied nature of now.

An essay by Pete Smith will accompany the exhibition. The essay’s title “He do the Police in Different Voices” was T.S. Eliot’s working title for The Waste Land. The essay looks closely at the individual works in the exhibition and relates them more specifically (if tangentially) to various aspects of Eliot’s poem.
