Rita Letendre: Fire and Light.
Co-curated by Wanda Nanibush and Georgiana Uhlyarik of the Art Gallery of Ontario.
Features nearly 35 large-scale paintings. Critically acclaimed Rita Letendre is one of the most eminent living abstract artists. Her painting career began in Montreal in the 1950s, when she associated with Quebec's prominent abstract artist groups Les Automatistes and Les Plasticiens. Often the sole female artist in their group shows, she broke away from their approach to painting, finding it restrictive. Seeking to express the full energy of life and harness in her powerful gestures an intense spiritual force, Letendre worked with various materials including oils, pastels, acrylics, using her hands, palette knife, brushes and uniquely the airbrush, which she began using in 1971.
This is the first major museum retrospective of Letendre's work to originate outside Quebec.

Alondra Ruiz-Hernandez: Stitching Time. South Gallery.
"This work embodies the passage of time. I approach photography the way I approach a painting. The exposures, the figures, and the background or the landscape are manipulated to create an image that wasn't there by rearranging the elements. Every detail has been organized and chosen. I intended for the subtleties of unfamiliarity to draw curiosity in the observer."

Beginners Beading with Emma Smith. Beads have always been an important aspect of Indigenous culture. They represent our connection to Mother Earth as they are made up of materials that came from her. Rocks, bones, and shells were often hand carved, an art form in itself, into beads to adorn clothing. This workshop is designed to explore the contemporary use of beading in Indigenous communities and provide a lesson on the basic steps of beading.
$45 (+HST) per person.
