    Art by 9: Creative Force Fire Within

    Headwaters Arts Gallery

    Within each artist is a creative force, a fire within that needs to be fed and cared for.  Ideas, books, travels, discussions with other artists, courses etc. are all fuel for that fire. Sometimes the flame is almost doused, times when artists are just plain out of energy and ideas. At other times the fire burns so brightly that meals are missed, other jobs are forgotten and the creative fire leads to wonderful works of art.  

    Each artist features one finished piece with pictures showing the progression and evolution of the work to its final stage.

    The artists in this show are: Darlene Hassall, Marg O'Flanagan-Byerley, Terry Gardener, Linda Jenetti, Margi Taylor, Jackie Warmelink, Freda Wrench, Rosemary Hasner and Rosemary Molesworth.

    Janet Simmons Sweet "Recede" Exhibition

    Falls Gallery

    A conceptual exhibition exploring the plight of glaciers, from the edge to the ridge. 

    RECEDE shows the life span of a Glacier through an artistic time-lapse. Janet uses actual Alaskan Glaciers, each at a different stage, to develop this concept. The artworks are then symbolically developed using abstraction in the initial pieces, and transitioned to impressionistic realism in the latter. The viewer is engaged in an idea that begins as an abstraction, but as the ice melts, and the valleys develop, the precarious reality of RECEDE is delivered.

    Out of the Cage - Mendelson Joe

    The Bartlett Gallery

    Rick Mercer once said, “When Mendelson Joe calls, you answer.” At 3pm on Sunday, March 30, the “famous recluse” will literally call in, via videoconference, to The Bartlett Gallery during the opening of a new exhibition of his paintings, Out of the Cage. Joe fans will recognize this as a rare, not to be missed coming “out of the cage” by a man who left Toronto for the woods nearly fifteen years ago.

    Joe has been called “the quintessential Canadian outsider artist,” and he is famous for portraits that make pointed social commentary, mocking his political foes and revering his friends. Out of the Cage will showcase a softer side of Mendelson Joe, and the northern Ontario landscape that has long been an antidote to his anger. In the north, Joe finds his hope; this is the stuff—the rocks, water and trees—that balm his soul. Of his landscape painting he writes: “Come and witness my heavens.” From March 26 to April 20, The Bartlett Gallery invites you to do just that.

    New folk art and landscapes by accalimed Canadian Iconloclast Medelson Joe in the Bartlett Gallery Reception Sunday March 30, 2-4Suspension

  • Indefinite Spaces

    • Fri Aug 5 - Mon Sep 5

    Dam Gallery

    The Dam Gallery presents the work of three young artists, Alex Richardson, Julia Vandepolder and Rachel Clark-Hall. Each artist examines the effects of time, transition and transformation while exploring their own unique areas of interest. They contrast and juxtapose the ephemeral and the concrete. Often objects are deconstructed to the point of near abstraction. A complementary colour palette unites the three artists’ work in the exhibition and lends a quiet strength to the overall presentation.

    You can see and purchase the work of these emerging artists until September 5.

    "Being": Selected Sculptures by Ted Fullerton

    Throughout the grounds.

    Ted Fullerton's dramatic scultures are on display throughout the grounds until August 28, 2011. According to Fullerton's artist's statement, these works reflect imagery that is "symbolic and metaphoric by nature, usually associated or interpreted with myth that alludes to dualism or the personification of the force of nature, as well as human nature".

    Since his career began in the 1970s, Fullerton has exhibited across Canada, England, Australia, Spain and Yugoslavia. Fullerton has completed significant public sculpture commissions and his works are in private, corporate and public collections across Canada and in the United States.He has received numerous awards for his painting, printmaking and sculpture, and has been featured in numerous publications. In the 1990s Fullerton was artist-in-residence at Cape Dorset and at Canadore College and he currently is co-ordinator of the Fine Arts program at Georgian College.

    This show is a joint presentation of the Alton Mill and Headwaters Arts, who gratefully acknowledge the support of the Ontario Arts Council.
