Spring Purview Speakers

We are excited to announce the Spring schedule for our Purview artist talks! 

Tuesday, March 29, 2016 at 7 pm: Michèle LaRose and Harry Symons

Michèle LaRose focuses primarily on painting, with forays into printmaking and book illustration. She is intrigued by the unknown and the spontaneous, as well as intuitive leaps that can occur in abstract work. While also demonstrating a sustained interest in painting, Harry Symons will address the way that his installations of paintings evolve and transform over the course of an exhibition. His exhibition Cricket, Corrosion and Cafeterias—Continuing Confounding Conundrums will be in our State of Flux Gallery from March 5 to April 16, 2016. 

Tuesday, April 26, 2016 at 7 pm: Amanda White and Brad Isaacs

Amanda White's current body of work investigates social and cultural imaginations of nature through a program of research and collaborative, participatory and interdisciplinary arts practices. Through photography, collage and video, Brad Isaacs addresses the function of nature as a construction within a Western perspective. The artists will address their interdisciplinary practices, as well as their upcoming residency at the KIAC in Dawson City, Yukon. 

Tuesday, May 24, 2016 at 7 pm: Aida Sulcs and Jocelyn Purdie

Aida Sulcs uses art as a tool to ask questions, articulate ideas and to understand. Jocelyn Purdie has been an active member of Kingston’s arts community since the mid ’80s, and an independent curator since the early ’90s. Her art practice includes work in sculpture, installation, and digital media.

Purview artist talks were initiated in order to give members an opportunity to present and share their work, but it is more than a night of presentations. It is a chance to learn about other practicing artists and cultural producers in our region—their influences, concerns and questions—and an occasion for artists to gain valuable insight and feedback from their peers.
