The Gallery is currently closed for installation.
Join us Thursday, March 1 at 6 pm for the Opening Reception of two new exhibitions: Recover All That is Ours, and Walter Scott: Wendy Goes West.
Guest curated by Shannon Webb-Campbell Mi’kmaq writer and poet, “Recover All That is Ours” features visual artists Meryl McMaster, Meagan Musseau, Lindsay Dobbin, and collaborators Becca Taylor, Breanna & Niki Little, and poets Janet Rogers and Gwen Benaway. Fusing artistic strategies like performance, land-based creation, video, photography, installation and poetry, each visual artist and poet seeks to shed light on reclamation, resurgence and resilience. Enter an immersive experience that brings the viewer into the intrinsic connection between the visual and poetic to explore the reconnection with Traditional Knowledge systems and territory.
The gallery has commissioned Walter Kaheró:ton Scott, a Kahnawake born artist who lives between Toronto and Montreal to create three new drawings. They come from Scott’s Wendy cartoon, a project he began drawing for fun after finishing art school in 2009. With two books in print and several exhibitions the Art Gallery is proud to be a stop in the Wendy-verse. The stories follow Wendy, an art school party girl, and her friends as they try to ‘make it’ in the art world. Scott’s sarcastic portrayals and distinct style are a sideways world you don’t want to miss.
