Responding to the THE WORKS Festival’s intended 2020 theme “Yield”, the exhibition “Yielding to Form” showcases diverse and compelling approaches to the notion of “form” in contemporary visual culture. The term form can mean several different things in art. Form refers to a composite of several visual elements, including colour, shape, juxtaposition, contrast, and dimension. Form is also used to describe the physical nature of the artwork, as in sculpture, painting, printmaking, photography, multi-media installations, etc. When used in tandem with the word art as in art form, it can also mean a medium of artistic expression recognized as fine art or an unconventional medium done so well as to elevate it to the level of fine art. A formal analysis of a work of art describes how the elements and principles of artwork together may evoke in the viewer, independent of their meaning and the feelings or thoughts. The exhibition allows the viewer to be more engaged in the art objects and – in the process – to finally complete the formal analysis of each work’s unique characteristics and meaning. This exhibition doubles as a fundraiser with 70% of the proceeds to be designated to the artists while the remaining 30% will support Harcourt’s art exhibitions and art education programs.

The works can be purchased until March 5, 2021 by emailing info@harcourthouse.ab.ca or calling Harcourt House during business hours, Monday through Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm, tel. 780-426-4180.
