Remix: Visual Arts Faculty & Staff Exhibition will open on Friday, January 9, 4:30 to 6 p.m. at Grenfell Campus Art Gallery. The exhibition continues until January 24.
The exhibition includes the work of 17 artists and will provide an opportunity to view a wide range of approaches to art-making and a diverse group of concepts. For example, Don Foulds is exhibiting glazed ceramic tiles depicting Newfoundland wildflowers while Matthew Hollett will be showing his new book which marries his photographic imagery to his poetry. Likewise, Marlene MacCallum unveils a new bookwork, a collaboration with writer, Jessica Grant. D’Arcy Wilson’s installation consists of a video of her performance at Banff as well as six etchings with silkscreen which contain lullabies for animals—all part of the artist’s continued exploration of the relationship between people and nature.
The Visual Arts program was initiated in 1988 and saw its first graduating class in 1992. Courses include drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, digital imaging and art history and instruction emphasizes technical proficiency, creative vision and critical thinking. Faculty and staff are practicing professional artists drawn from many regions of the country and beyond and have exhibited nationally and internationally.
