It’s looking like a busy week here at CUAG…we’ve got THREE events coming up! There’s lots of other great art stuff happening around the city too.
Tonight, head to the National Gallery of Canada for a drawing workshop in their new John Ruskin exhibition space. For inspiration, Check out this article in their magazine on the British artist’s watercolours.
Tomorrow (Friday) evening, come to CUAG for an Art Picnic, where we’ll be serving up spoken word, acoustic performances, a zine exchange (plus all the materials to make your own), and button-making! All the activities are inspired by our winter exhibitions, so you can walk around and check out the art as well! Don’t forget to bring something for the potluck!
On Saturday, if you’re in the mood to make some art, the Ottawa Art Gallery has organized an embroidery workshop in conjunction with David R. Harper’s exhibition. Canadian artist Kate Jackson will be leading the workshop, talking about her own practice and demonstrating how to draw with embroidery! Looks fantastic, plus it’s free! Registration is required.
On Monday evening, we’re thrilled to be presenting a panel discussion about the life, work, and legacy of artist, activist, and poet Dennis Tourbin. Diana Nemiroff will be moderating the conversation between journalism professor Christopher Dornan, curator/art historian Judith Parker, and artist/curator Daniel Sharp.
Finally, on Wednesday afternoon, CUAG is hosting a lecture by renowned Concordia Art History professor Cynthia Hammond, who will be speaking on “Making Space: Activism, Landscape, and Women’s History”. Join us at 4 p.m. if you’re on campus!
