The Ann Street Gallery is pleased to present its newest exhibition Bill Yost: A Retrospective with an Opening Reception on Saturday, February 25 from 6-9 pm.
This first major gallery exhibition devoted to the full scope of the artistic career of multi-media artist William Yost (1944-2011) focuses on the diverse body of work from the 1960’s to 2011. The exhibition highlights a wide variety of work, representing nearly every type of work Yost made, in both technique and subject matter, including a diverse selection of paintings, sculptures, drawings and watercolours.
For anyone who knew Bill, the exhibition is not to be missed, and for those gallery visitors unfamiliar with this artist’s work, this is a rare treat! One of the most intriguing aspects of the show is being able to see the diversity and variety of work Mr. Yost produced over a lifetime of practice. There is nearly every type of medium represented, from drawing to painting to sculpture to the use of photography, and in each work his style and perspective shines through. The whole focus of the show is really about sharing this wonderful talent with the community at large, showing in part, what would normally only have been seen in his studio.
This exhibition is on view through Saturday, April 21, 2012.
