Toronto-based artist James Ridyard uses images of Elora and its iconic surrounds as aides-mémoire to produce richly layered, atmospheric landscapes at once familiar and foreign. Curator Micaela Campbell
GRAZYNA ADAMSKA AND NORMAN BUSSE
Finding the Nest: Self-Identity and Otherness captures the ambiguous connections between our understanding of oneself and our striving for wider forms of acceptance and recognition. The exhibition features the paintings of Grazyna Adamska and Norman Busse. Exploring the relationship between power and positionality, both artists’ works show an intense commitment to the human form as vehicle for interpretation of self and other within the diversity of contemporary realities. Curator Micaela Campbell
Featuring the work of: Judy Anderson, Cindy McKenna, Frances Hahn, Nadine McEwen, Heather Murray, Grayce Perry, A. Linda VanWyk, Fuzzy Mall, Alisa McRonald.
Curators Bear Epp & Micaela Campbell
Opening Reception October 12th, 7-9pm in the Harris Exchange Gallery
The Minarovich Gallery at the ECFTA transforms into miniature worlds of paper and shadow with the arrival of Chasing Shadows. Taking inspiration from Victorian inventions like tunnel books, stereoscopes, magic lanterns and zoetropes, Elly MacKay crafts rich cut-paper dioramas in shadow boxes layered with atmospheric detail and peopled with whimsical characters and ethereal flora and fauna.
An artist, author and illustrator, MacKay works from her home studio in Owen Sound. She was recently commissioned to produce the cover art for the new edition of the Anne of Green Gables book series.
