FOCUS
George Smith

November 1 - 26, 2017
Opening Reception: Wednesday, November 1, 7pm - 9pm

"My work is about the language of light and dark and its ability to draw the mind’s focus. A driver of a car will see the child cross the road and the crow descend on carrion but not remember the trees or houses that surround those images. My work is about these points of focused attention, in which the unnecessary and superfluous disappear."

George Smith was born in Liverpool, England, and has been producing art all his life. He studied painting and sculpture at Liverpool University (BFA) under personal tutelage of David Nash and apprenticed with sculptor Sean Rice. George exhibited his work, in both painting and sculpture, in Liverpool, Wales, and as part of an art collective in Norwich, before immigrating to Canada in 2000.

Departures: The Geary Street Cemetery Interactive Media Tour

Media artist Leola LeBlanc, in collaboration with local youth, created Departures: The Geary Street Cemetery Interactive Media Tour, an interactive on-line map and interactive walking tour of the Geary Street Cemetery that is accessible to youth and the public. The tour and map will be incorporated into curriculum created for Elementary, Junior High and High School students in collaboration with Alderney Landing’s Bluenose Ghosts Festival. (approx. 145 schools will be invited to participate)

The project has created an interactive map and tour filled with creative information relating to the historical significance of the Geary Street Cemetery.

Unfortunately, at this time the platform this tour was created on no longer exsists. We are looking into an alternative solution. Thank you for your patience.
