UNFURLED: UNSETTLING THE ARCHIVE FROM A MORE THAN HUMAN PERSPECTIVE
Orillia Museum of Art and History l Orillia
May 20 - October 31, 2021

This is an exhibition that playfully speculates on how animals might choose to engage with, frame, label and question natural history objects held within the archives of museums.   The North American Fur Trade lasted approximately 350 years between 1530 and 1880.   The Atherley Narrows, a site that sits between Lakes Simcoe and Couchiching, was a source of fishing and hunting for local Indigenous people as far back as 5000 years ago.  With the advent of the fur trade, and a visit by Samuel de Champlain in 1615, the Narrows became a key site of cultural and capital exchange, and led to the eventual formation of Orillia as a European settlement in 1840.  Drawing on narratives and word play based on animals hunted, trapped and exchanged, Unfurled utilizes objects and materials held within OMAH’s historical collection, as well as objects created by Price, to discuss how the thriving abundance of animals led to the material wealth of their prime predators, human beings.

LUSH: Fabrications in Yarn and Fabric

Marlene Hilton Moore l Jill Price

Be Contemporary l Innisfil

August 7 – September 4, 2021

 

Outdoor Summer Soiree and Artist Tours: Thursday, August 19th 4 – 7 pm


Patterned, beaded, stitched, appliqued, crocheted, and knitted, LUSH is a two-person exhibition investigating the social, cultural, and ecological implications of textiles from different perspectives. Hilton Moore continues to photograph her intense explorations of identity through dressmaking and assemblage while Price's altered ready-mades more whimsically point to the folly of women within the highly capitalistic markets of fashion.

Collage 2021
John B. Aird Gallery l TORONTO


Online Exhibit / Art Book Launch: March 15, 2021
Jurors: Claire Christie

This year the John B. Aird Gallery initiated their first juried online exhibition + art book featuring contemporary collage-based works. For this exhibition ‘collage’ is understood as both the technique and the resulting work of art in which pieces of paper, photographs, fabric, and other ephemera are arranged and stuck down onto a supporting surface to create an overall work of art. Claire selected exactly 64 collage artists’ works from over 300 submissions and organized them into 5 distinct sections consisting of ABSTRACTION & MONTAGE; DIMENSIONAL; HYBRID FORMS; PLACE & LANDSCAPE and PORTRAITS & FIGURES. John B. Aird Gallery curatorial assistant, Erin Storus furnishes COLLAGE publication with both an introductory essay and its exquisite design.

Abstract Realities

September 19 to October 18, 2020

 

Participating Artists: Patti Agapi, Amy Bagshaw, Nathalie Bertin, Carey Cruise, Luci Dilkus, Gail Esau, Midori Fullerton, Ted Fullerton, Marlene Hilton-Moore, Tim Laurin, Christina Luck, Chum McLeod, Jill Price, Amy Switzer, Bernice Vasey 

 

A Sculpture Exhibition provides some respite in these challenging times. A sense of abstract reality is a tool that enables us to make sense between truth and untruth, fantasy and reality. Currently, the society we know is fractured and disconnected; we find ourselves in limbo. The arts help us cope; sharing the creativity and vision of these artists provides a much-needed grounding in these uncertain times. Curated by Jeanette Luchese.

At Intervals

 

An exhibition drawing attention to time as an unpredictable and sometimes imperceivable material.

Zach Atticus, Franziska Barczyk, Erin Candela, Felicia Cirste, Dorota Dziong, Christopher Gardiner, Tonya Hart, Dalia Hassan, Mary Kainer, James A. Laforet, (Jessie) Jihyun Lee, Neil Maguire, Linds Miyo, Hamid Mohammadi, Jill Price, Erin Williamson

 

Beginning in October of 2019, Akin launched its second year of hosting artists-in-residence at 158 Sterling Road. Working across a wide range of disciplines and at their own pace, the material realities of COVID 19 worked to draw attention to time as an unpredictable material that brings about change or taunts us with the unknown.  Dedicated to sharing and growing their practice, the work on display represents some of the artists who chose to retain their studios with AKIN by working in intervals and following physical distancing protocols to thwart the risks of co-working spaces and shared public facilities.
