Jim Holyoak and Matt Shane @ Open Space


It starts in the wild lands of the West Coast Trail, where Holyoak and Shane will spend 10 days hiking to collect impressions, visual documentation, and to provoke their imaginations for a vast and immersive drawing that will cover the walls at Open Space.

During July and August, Open Space will transform into a space of flux and metamorphosis, mapping the tension between what is abundant and what is endangered, what is real and what is imagined, what is untempered contrasted with the effects of human  interruption. Animals, their habitats, and plant life will all be met with fantasty, and live in a newly imagined space.

You will lose yourself in the immensity of the drawn experience at Open Space. As artist Shane explains: "This shared world is one at the borderlands of wilderness and civilization, the real and the imaginary, deep time and the present".

Open Space will be open during the installation process. Summer hours are 12:00pm to 5:00pm, Tuesday-Saturday. Stop by to meet the artists and chat with them during their lunch breaks, from 1:00pm-2:00pm, Tuesday-Saturday.

Artists talk: Sat. Aug. 12, 2017 @ 2pm
