Billow and Well and Bone and Bough
Adele McFarlane Wile

April 6 - 30, 2017
Opening Reception: Wednesday, April 5, 7pm-9pm
Artist Talk April 29, 2pm

The human condition is at the forefront of Adele McFarlane Wile's large scale installation that is about to fill The Craig Gallery space in April with immersive ocean and forests.

"Billow and Well and Bone and Bough are two oil paint on panel installation pieces that use ocean and forest landscapes to investigate the human condition in relation to the environment.

These two installations take the paintings off of the walls and place them in the space of the gallery. They are meant to induce the sense of surrounding the viewer, drawing you into the details of the painted surfaces, turning your body or head to view the pieces in their entirety, while utilizing your peripherals as you would when observing nature.

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.

Google Earth streams the world over wired and wireless networks enabling users to virtually go anywhere on the planet and see places in photographic detail. This is not like any map you have ever seen. This is a 3D model of the real world, based on real satellite images combined with maps, guides to restaurants, hotels, entertainment, businesses and more. You can zoom from space to street level instantly and then pan or jump from place to place, city to city, even country to country.
