Step Into The Past...

The Flower May Not Look Like the Roots (OSAC)
March 4-23, 2022

With attitudes ranging from the microscopic to the cartographic, the seven artists of The Flower may not Look like the Roots1 cultivate contemporary relationships to landscape, ecology2, and regional identity that respond to local communities past, present and future. The work plants its roots deep and long ago but to ends that are contemporary and evolving. These renegotiations of a well worn-in genre materialize themselves in clay, paint, video, drawing, and textile. Each of the various artistic mediums employed by the artists supply generous insight into the ways in which geography and sense of place figure into the personal landscapes of their own minds.

Sketch Book at the End of the World - October 1- November 10  - Anonymous artist! 

This artist choses to remain anonymous and also has no images for us to portray as of yet...wait until October to see what this artist will have to share!! 

The women I have painted are bright, and hardworking. They were going through rough times as they tried to settle into their new lives. Through my paintings, I want to show what it feels like to be alone, frustrated, sad, empty, confused, lost amidst strangers and new friends. The paintings help promote dialogue about being new to Canada. I want to offer a glimpse into the life of an immigrant woman during this challenging time. Some show despair; others are more hopeful; while some are more settled.
