'unearthed'
work in textiles by Pat Loucks

November 29, 2017 - January 7, 2018
Opening Reception: Wednesday, November 29, 7pm - 9pm

“Unearthed” refers to textiles that may have come from an excavation site. I am drawn to the symbolic and aesthetic elements of decay – the way that simply the wearing down and aging process can yield beautiful imagery while at the same time symbolizing the transience of human structures. Cloth literally absorbs colour, marks and patterns, becoming like an artifact – a material history of the landscape." - Pat Loucks

A beautiful testament to to the tragedy of the Halifax Explosion 100 years ago.

Push Pull
Marley Johnson

Main Gallery

January 11 - 28, 2018
Opening Reception: Wednesday, January 10, 7pm - 9pm

Push//Pull is a series of paintings which captures the figure/body relationship and contour mark making on large scale paintings. The shapes and contours implies a playfulness, exuberance, and a sense of effervescence or froth which forms in-between the push//pull of tides. By breaking down the impression of the gestures, leaving it raw and undefined I hope to reveal something transparent about the process of painting and color.

"... fish towers say something about exuberance and abundance. On encoun- ter and on a surface level, they seem to make people happy. The implied watery medium relates to the unconscious (in some schools of psy- chology), and gives us the idea of our teeming unconscious lives. A tower of dry, fossil-like fish speaks to past lives, busyness stilled."

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 exists. We are looking into an alternative solution. Thank you for your patience.
