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."

Ephemera: The Searchings of an Adopted Daughter. Mixed media and stained glass by Kate Greenway. Begun as a doctoral investigation, I counter a lack of artworks about adoptees, birth mothers and adoptive mothers who have experienced the lingering effects of an earlier culture of secrecy and sealed records. In my works of paper and glass art I use my own archival ephemera, including photographs, records and letters, as documentary evidence of my – and others' – adoptive experiences, and as a literal / symbolic connection to the ephemera of adoption. The process of fusing, shattering, layering, collaging and piecing together shards of glass into a cohesive whole is another metaphor for the multiple and layered challenges that affect all touched by adoption ... more

Barry Ace: Nayaano-nibiimaang Gichigamiin | The Five Great Lakes.
Nayaano-nibiimaang Gichigamiin presents a new series of honouring blankets for the five Great Lakes. Hudson's Bay trade blankets are adorned with unique Anishinaabe blanket strips that remix intricately designed floral motifs and geometric iconography composed of traditional glass-cut beads and contemporary electronic components (capacitors, resistors, and diodes). Each blanket is a homage to a specific Great Lake and retells Anishinaabeg historical and cultural narratives through the use of mnemonic iconography and code embedded into each blanket strip. The suite of contemporary honouring blankets is witness to the persistence of Anishinaabeg cultural continuity, through the confluence of the historical and contemporary.
Also presented in the exhibition is a select précis from the suite of photographic works entitled Memory Landscape. These works are a homage and requiem on the passing of a close friend documenting the artist's connection and travel on the land and water in the Great Lakes region of Manitoulin and Algoma. These sensitive and personal diptychs simultaneously capture a presence and absence of a life that once was and are beautifully embellished with beaded medicine flowers and iconography as honouring tributes.

Amy Shackleton: The Great Canadian LEED-scape.
The Great Canadian LEED-scape painting will be traveling to four cities in 2017 (see tour schedule below). Please join Canadian artist Amy Shackleton on Sun 4 Jun for the second opening of The Great Canadian LEED-scape at the Visual Arts Centre of Clarington.
Five years in the making and spanning over 50 feet, this original painting panorama explores the ongoing transformation of Canada's natural and built environments.
The Great Canadian LEED-scape consists of thirteen panels, one for each province and territory in Canada. The regions are positioned from west to east, according to the longitude of each capital city. Leading examples of sustainable architecture (LEED-certified buildings) are combined with neighboring trees, mountains and waterways. In recognition of Canada 150, this painting examines Canada's changing urban landscape and suggests what the future could hold.
Using squeeze bottles filled with liquid paint, The Great Canadian LEED-scape was built from the ground up with hundreds of lines and dots. Shackleton manipulates the drip and flow of her paint through gravity and by spinning her canvas. As in real-life construction, the architectural details are calculated, measured and controlled in order to assure precise locations of each line. As in nature, the environmental elements are more spontaneous, unpredictable and liquid.
"This is the most ambitious painting of my career in both scope and scale. It has demanded extensive research, Canada-wide travel and a larger studio space. I spent time in every province and territory to photograph landscapes and hunt down buildings that were developed with nature in mind. I walked on sea ice in Nunavut. I braved -35°C in Manitoba. I hiked mountains in Alberta, British Columbia, Newfoundland and Yukon. The multi-year process has been a labour of love and I couldn't be more excited to share it in my first ever traveling exhibition!" – Amy Shackleton.
