Stake through “Canadada”

Local artist Chuck Stake’s work is on display at the Leonard & Bina Ellen Art Gallery (Concordia University) in Montreal. The exhibition, called “Traffic” opened Friday March 16, and is a collection of the first works made by Chuck Stake, aka Don Mabie.

“These works were made between 1972 and 1976,” Mabie/Stake said in a press release, “Chuck Stake Enterprizes (CSE)was founded in 1972 so these are the first works I made as Chuck Stake, forty years ago to the month.”

The show is an installation of “Correspondence and MailArt mailings” from the early years of Chuck Stake and the 1970’s. Unfortunately, Mabie/Stake couldn’t make it for the eastern Canada opening, but it planning to make it to one closer to home this year.

“I will not make it to the opening or the show unfortunately, but, I do hope to make it to the opening in September when the show opens in Vancouver (it is a little closer than Montreal),” Mabie/Stake wrote.

Vancouver is the final show scheduled for Canada. A condensed version of the exhibition will then travel to the Badischer Kunstverein in Karlsruhe, Germany.
