CURRENT EXHIBITION

Shut Up and Listen


February 5 to February 28,1998.
Hours: Tuesday to Saturday 19 - 6 pm

The Opening:

Opening Thursday February 5, 1997 PST from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m., Third Avenue Gallery proudly
presents the drawings and photographs of Chantal Lefebvre and Laura Jane Petelko.

Both artists explore the co-opting of the female form as a means to captivate and manipulate
an audience for purposes of the sale. Through the interjection of text or the juxtaposition of
conflicting images both artists succeed in subverting out traditional view of the female form and
facilitate fresh and alternative thoughts. Their views are not only tender, cheeky, joyful and
angry, but they are consistently irreverant, poignant and beautiful.

The Netcast:

The opening, including video interviews with the artists will be "Netcast" across the Internet
with the assistance of ArtSource, James Riley, Weston Triemstra and itv.net. In order
