    New Materials | Nýtt Efni is a solo exhibition featuring David Lin's ('13) cumulative works in Northern Iceland at the Listhús í Fjallabyggð Art Space.

    Lin likes to display a sense of humor and dedication in his works, utilizing a mixture of purpose-made or found materials either as a trace or carnate. Perhaps each of his works start out as ready-made of some natural force, and seeing something special in it, he presents the object in a new context and as new materials.

    It was with great sadness to learn of the passing of Joseph Plaskett, at the age of 96. Nominated by Lawren Harris, Joseph Plaskett won the first Emily Carr Scholarship in 1946.
