2016 Juror ~ Olex Wlasenko

ABOUT THE JUROR

Olex WlasenkoOlex Wlasenko

Olex Wlasenko has based his studio practice in
Oshawa after earning a Master of Fine Art at The
University of Western Ontario in 2000. Prior to this, he graduated with distinction from the Ontario College of Art (OCA) in 1994, going on to complete a degree in Fine Arts at the University of Guelph. In his final year at OCA, Wlasenko was awarded the Eric Freifield Award. In 2001 and 2011, he won top prize at the national juried drawing exhibition organized at the John B. Aird Gallery.

The artist regularly receives grants from Canada Council for the Arts and from
the Ontario Arts Council. In 2002, 2004, 2005 and 2006 the artist won Best
Drawing Award at the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition. Wlasenko has exhibited extensively in Toronto and London, ON, nationally in Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton
and Dawson City, Yukon, and internationally in Florence, Italy and Kyiv, Ukraine.
After completing his graduate studies, Wlasenko worked as Assistant Curator at
The Robert McLaughlin Gallery (RMG) in Oshawa. There he organized over
twenty photography exhibitions featuring vintage prints that document the historical
development of his hometown of Oshawa. Olexander currently holds the position of Curator at Station Gallery in Whitby, Ontario since early 2008 where he has curated over 70 exhibitions.

JUROR’S COMMENTS

PineRidge Arts Council has a deep presence over a quarter of a century. I’m
truly honored to be invited as juror for this year’s Third Juried Photography Exhibition
showcasing image-makers and arts enthusiasts from across the region. The
sheer volume of quality production submitted for consideration commented on
the visionary breadth and creative vitality in our community. In turn, this made
my task that much more exhilarating and engaging.
