The Lantern Festival Online Photo Exhibit

The Yee Ping Festival is an annual event held in the northern provinces of Thailand on the full moon of the twelfth month. Participants request good fortune and prosperity by the dramatic lighting of lanterns suspended from houses and temples. The night sky of the full moon is peppered with large paper lanterns floating to thousands of feet of altitude across the open countryside.

Showcase of 2018 Art on the Street Award Winners
Daily until Aug 30 (9-5 Mon-Fri) • 42 Carden St • All Ages • Free
Closing Reception: Aug 30, 6-8pm 

An eye-catching selection of abstract and representational art from local exhibitors presented with our annual awards at this year's Art on the Street. Selected for the strength of their work, aesthetic presentation and dedication to their artistic practices, the group has put together a show worth seeing as a set. Don't miss your chance to see it all together and maybe even taking home a new treasure!

The artists include Laurie Skantzos (Best of Show), Monika Hauck (Best Booth), Korey Steckle (Emerging Artist) and Neurons and Nebulas (Honourable Mention). People's Choice Award winner Jennifer Elliotson was not available to participate in the exhibition. Her work can be viewed on her website.

Attendees will be able to test a new art-purchasing platform developed by “Best Booth” winner Monika Hauck. Wallspacer helps buyers acquire art they find exhibited in alternative spaces. Whereas a commercial gallery is equipped to make sales and send you home the same day with your new artistic treasure, spaces like cafés, community centres, etc. often show art but can’t process a sale on behalf of the artist.  Artists can register their work on the platform, and buyers who come across that work in person can use the app/website to purchase it. Staff at the venue where the artwork is installed will assist in the process, but the payment is taken through the platform and goes directly to the artist rather than being collected by the venue.

RECEPTION: FRIDAY, JUNE 22, 6:30 PM

In any style, cursive text, also known as handwriting, script, longhand, or running text, is the joining of the character symbols of language in a flowing manner, generally for the purpose of making writing faster and more efficient.

Ancient cultures developed systems of writing that have evolved and persisted into the 21st century. Featuring artifacts selected from the permanent collection, this exhibition traces the history of penmanship, never more compelling than in the digital age.

Fieldwork features the work of Arizona-based artist, farmer, and food activist Matthew Moore. Situated at the intersection of art and agriculture, Moore’s social practice engages issues related to environment, food, and sustainability as means to increase consciousness of our relationship to the land and food production. Offering a poignant lens on the loss of farmland to urban growth, Moore blends documentary tactics, land-based installation, and community engagement to reimagine commitment to place in a global context. Currently participating in the LAND Studio program facilitated by the Art Gallery of Guelph and Musagetes, Fieldworkextends Moore’s focus on the American southwest to explore local landscape transformation. Curated by Shauna McCabe, this exhibition is presented with the support of the Ontario Arts Council and the Canada Council for the Arts.

Inspired by Inuk filmmaker Alethea Anarquq-Baril’s award-winning documentary, Angry Inuk, this exhibition is grounded in intergenerational art and activism that speaks to the central role of the seal and seal hunting within Inuit culture and society. Considered a critically important Indigenous right to Inuit communities, the practice has been affected by international protests that have failed to engage the Inuit themselves. Bringing together contemporary works by Alethea Anarquq-Baril, Katherine Takpannie, Couzyn van Heuvelen, and Tanya Tagaq, as well as works from the Art Gallery of Guelph’s permanent collection selected by Inuit youth, Getting Under Our Skin highlights the primacy of lived tradition and its transformation into visual culture. Curated by Andrew Hunter, this exhibition is presented with the support of the Ontario Arts Council and the Canada Council for the Arts.

Andrew Buszchak makes sculpture using carbon steel, lumber, and other materials common to the construction trades. Drawing inspiration from experiences as both a general labourer and journeyman welder, he is particularly interested in materials and their associated joining methods. With this body of work, Buszchak looks to draw attention to the implicit hierarchy between “parent” material and the method for fastening – often taken for granted as a means to an end. The exhibition represents the culmination of two years of focused work in the University of Guelph’s Master of Fine Arts program and is presented in conjunction with the School of Fine Art and Music (SOFAM).
