Second Story Art Society is please to open its new exhibition facility "TRUCK: an artist-run centre" with a collection of new works by Calgary artist Jim Goertz. This exhibition, entitled "Jim Put New Things in Truck," will look at the artist/intellectual's role in the community. This relationship is examined through an irreverant perception of daily issues such as politics, education, and religion. The artist works comfortably in a variety of mediums, having exhibited painting, installation art, performance art, and most recently audio production. The works for this exhibition will include kinetic paintings and assemblages that examine the nature of our community in a rather straightforward way.
Jim Goertz graduated with a diploma in Painting from the Alberta College of Art in 1984. He has also studied at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology in Mechanical Engineering Technology and Okanagan College in Fine Arts foundation.
