CONTINUING

to November 3, 2019 ~ Visual Arts Centre of Clarington

VACZ’otz* Collective: Waiting Outside of My Hand
Z’otz* Collective is a group of three artists with Latin American roots, who collaborate on multi-media works, which include drawing, painting, collage, sculpture, ceramics, and site-specific drawing installations. In this exhibition, the artists will investigate the concept of the niche as a point of departure. A niche may be thought of as a recess or shadow box, to contain elements within a larger configuration. Exploring the notion of the space to incubate, collect, investigate, and share stories, the collective will create contemporary niches strategically placed within the content of a site-specific mural created by the artists.

Marion Bridge
By Daniel MacIvor
Directed by Carolyn Wilson
Stage Managed by Christy Chase and Kathy Ennis
“Best not to have expectations and to keep your plans flexible.”
Agnes is “the unconventional one”; Theresa is “the good one”; Louise is “the strange one”. For adult sisters reuniting in their Cape Breton home, nothing is ever as simple or as terrific or as awful as the children they were once believed. Maybe that’s a good thing because the MacKeigans each cling to wildly different versions of how they grew up. It could be said that we need to understand our childhoods to live a rich and happy life, or it just might be that we need to let our sisters support us in the here and now.
