Something Round is an exhibition about walking, solitude and social interaction. Prompted by a curiosity about how people move through and relate to shared spaces, Something Round explores the perceptions and experiences of an unnamed – and possibly not self-identified – community formed by users of the Bruce Trail in Hamilton. Using photographs, narrative and a collection of circular detritus, Something Round considers the Bruce Trail as observed by a community of trail users.
The artist gratefully acknowledges the funding support from CCENA- The Centre for Community Engaged Narrative Arts.
Closing reception: September 29th 5-8pm
Melissa Neil uses landscape painting as a vehicle to explore notions of time, memory and place. A new body of work smoking lake considers the experiences of Ukrainian women who immigrated to the Smoky Lake (Alberta) region in the late 1800’s. Imagery of present day piles of brush, gravel pits and stagnant sloughs allude to the work and experiences of an ephemeral past. Oil paintings on linen and mylar will be presented.
The artist gratefully acknowledges the funding support from the City Enrichment Fund.
