Phantoms In the Front Yard
Vancouver's figurative artists collective featuring:
Michael Abraham, Jeremiah Birnbaum, Jay Senetchko, Marcus Macleod, Paul Morstad, and Jonathan Sutton,
in collaboration with curator Pennylane Shen, and select guest artists.
For each of our shows one group member artist proposes a theme that the entire group then develops work around.
The collaborative nature of this process continues to result in exciting work from exhibition to exhibition.

The Phantoms in the Front Yard
At The Burrard Hotel
Everyone I've Never Known - an exhibition of miniature works.
Friday, April 25th : 12pm - 6pm
Opening reception: 6pm - 8:30pm with after party to follow.
Someone you miss without having been with them. Someone you know who doesn't know you. Someone you long for who is already there ...
Where do we know others? Or not know them? In our fantasies? Our memories? How are we impacted by people we have never met?
For many this is a time of decreasing contact with our familiars, and increasing contact with acquaintances and strangers, be it through information sharing, celebrity culture, population density, and / or other means of interface.
The Vancouver-based figurative collective Phantoms in the Front Yard does; and will be colliding with this theme in their next show at the Burrard Hotel for a one-night-only exhibition. The result will be an explosion of miniature pictures devoted to exploring all the people we’ve never truly known and what that means to us.
This show’s guests are the internationally recognized multi-media and installation artist Christian Nicolay; and the award-winning, classically trained master of both figure and portrait Mandy Boursicot.
Stranger or familiar, family or friend, young or old, come and discover the people we’ve never known.
Little pieces, little prices, little duration. Come and spend hardly any of anything with us.
