We love Gathie Falk! 22 years ago this month—in 1994—Gathie’s Eighteen Pairs of Red Shoes with Roses (1973) was included in the group exhibition Corpus I at Oakville Galleries. Photo: Rod Demerling.
If you’re visiting Oakville Galleries in Gairloch Gardens this summer, make sure to check out Giant Beaver Charm (1999–2000), a site-specific commission by Canadian artist-duo FASTWÜRMS. The charm bracelet—made for a distinctive willow tree next to the pond in Gairloch Gardens—features a variety of symbols: stars, horseshoes, snowmen, and a single giant beaver tooth.
