About The Event

On Thursday, July 25 from 6-8PM EXCAVO is pleased to open Agneta Dolman's 'SEA CHANGE' at TAP Centre for Creativity. Curated by Moira McKee, this exhibition celebrates the life of Swedish-born artist Agneta Dolman (1944-2024). Born in Stockholm and a graduate in Language and Linguistics from Stockholm University, Agneta immigrated to Canada, studying under Arthur Lismer at the Montreal Museum of Fine Art's School of Art & Design, where she met fellow artist and future husband, Doug. In London, Agneta graduated from Althouse College, she and Doug pursuing their individual artistic practices while actively supporting the London arts community.

Passionately believing drawing to be the foundation of all art making, Agneta began organizing life drawing sessions with friends in the 1990's throughout London and was a founding member of Life Drawing at TAP Centre for Creativity. As with her life drawing, Agneta’s organic sculptures and vessels, hand formed in porcelain, could most adequately be defined as renderings of the circumstances of their own creation, alluding to the medium's symbolic past as a narrative object that visually told a story.

Throughout her practice as a painter, Agneta developed a metaphysical aesthetic language, creating a visionary world explored through her imagination. A renderer of transitions, Agneta's recollections of the past converge with process to shape real and imagined landscapes, tethering a primal connection with nature to our collective vulnerabilities.

Agneta has exhibited across Canada and internationally, featured in McIntosh Gallery's A Driving Force: Women of the London, Ontario Art Community 1867-2017, represented by Westland Gallery (London, ON), and Ridelius Galleri (Visby, Gotland).

100% of proceeds from works sold will be donated from the Dolman Estate to TAP Centre for Creativity to support future  programming, connections, and opportunities to artists and creators living and working in London.
