The ART GALLERY OF BANCROFT presents ARTIST TALK with CAROLINE DeMOOY

"THE ENIGMATIC LANDSCAPE"

Posted November 25, 2016

Where: Art Gallery of Bancroft, 10 Flint Ave. Bancroft,

When: 2:00 PM, Sunday November, 27

Free Admission

Artist Caroline DeMooy's work is currently on exhibition at the Art Gallery of Bancroft and the gallery is happy she will be giving an Artist Talk. It'll be an opportunity to meet the artist and hear about her art practice.

DeMooy was born in the Netherlands and came to Canada in 1968. She graduated from the Alberta College of Art and Design in 1984 and moved to Toronto in that same year to pursue independent studio work.

In 1999, her knowledge of paint and colour led her to film work. She created silicone prosthetics for films which include Snow Falling on Cedars,The Shipping News, Xmen 1&2 and the pilot for the J.J. Abrams series Fringe.

DeMooy's work is not based on any specific idea, but rather a feeling or thought that she has about the world around her. Nature provides her with a symphony of information that becomes her palette. The multi-layered world, with its endless possibilities and outcomes presents a vast riddle of visual, emotional, psychological and spiritual information. It is a feeling presented in layers. The more you look the more you will see.

In addition to this solo show at the Art Gallery of Bancroft, she has shown at galleries in Peterborough, Toronto, St. Johns, Nfld., Calgary and has been involved in Art Collective projects.

In 2012, deMooy opened STANDARD28, a cappuccino bar, store and gallery just south of Apsley, Ontario in addition to continuing her independent studio practice.

The public is invited to attend the Artist Talk. The event is free and is becoming the place to be seen in the area.

 

 

The ART GALLERY OF BANCROFT presents ARTIST TALK with VALERIE ASHTON

Posted October 6, 2016

Where: Art Gallery of Bancroft, 10 Flint Ave. Bancroft,

When: 2:00 PM, Sunday October 16

Free Admission

  Artist Valerie Ashton at the Haliburton Landfill, her "Studio"

Valerie Ashton has been working as an artist for most of the last 20 years. She most often works in acrylic, pastel and mixed media. Recently she has begun to use less traditional objects in her art, such as cans, beer caps and used coffee filters. Recycling, waste, the environment are all important things to consider when considering the world we live in – how can the questions that arise out of these issues be incorporated into an art practice – and how to engage a community of people using a landfill site are questions that Valerie pondered while she was the Artist-in-Residence for the Haliburton School of Art and Design this summer.  While in residence, she worked at the Haliburton landfill using art to show the effect of the landfill on the environment. For eight weeks, her art supply store was the landfill.

The first time Valerie observed the landfill site she was struck by the surroundings and remarked that  'You see this big pile of garbage and right behind is Haliburton's forest. It's fascinating.”

While at the landfill, Valerie also made her rolled landscapes. Working directly on the ground at the landfill, Valerie uses paper, acrylic and a rolling pin to create these beautiful and unique works.

Valerie was elected as a member of the Ontario Society of Artists in 2008 and awarded a Master Pastelist designation in 2012. Her works are in the permanent art collections of the Ontario Government and the Town of Markham.

Anyone interested in this stimulating talk is encouraged to attend this free event.  This is the fourth Artist Talk at the Art Gallery of Bancroft this year and the interest in them is growing with great turnouts and lively discussion.  The series was initiated this summer with the gallery's partnership  with the Hybla Residency.

The talk will be held at the Art Gallery of Bancroft, 10 Flint Ave. Bancroft, ON at 2:00 PM, Sunday October 16.  The talk will be followed with an informal Question and Answer session with the artist.

 

The ART GALLERY OF BANCROFT presents ARTIST TALK with KATHY M HAYCOCK

Posted September 17, 2016

Where: Art Gallery of Bancroft, 10 Flint Ave. Bancroft,

When: 2:00 PM, Sunday September 25

Free Admission

 

Kathy M. Haycock grew up in Ottawa surrounded by the art of her father, Arctic artist Maurice Haycock and his painting partner A.Y. Jackson of the Canadian Group of Seven. She cites them as her major influences. Early Arctic trips with her father introduced her to the lure of the North and infused a sweeping and graceful rhythm in her work. The Art Gallery of Bancroft is honoured to have Kathy M. Haycock's paintings in the gallery currently, a solo exhibition of her work entitled “In The Prevailing Wind,” continuing until October 1.

Haycock continues to find her deepest inspiration when immersed in the wilderness landscape. The experience of “being there” affirms a deep connection with the natural world. To demonstrate her dedication to working as a plein air painter, the focus of her artist talk will be a work that she will begin that morning at a Bancroft area outdoor location.  She will be talking about what makes creating work on site special to her and what she needs to prepare for it.  How do you even start to decide where in all this beauty to paint?  How do you deal with black flies?  The talk promises to be informative and entertaining.

Kathy exhibits in select solo and juried shows. This is her first solo show at the Art Gallery of Bancroft. Her award winning art is represented in private, public and corporate collections across Canada and internationally. She is frequently invited to present lectures, slide shows, workshops and demonstrations such as the workshop held last weekend at the Gallery. Her paintings are featured in numerous books and publications, recently “Artists of Algonquin”, Ottawa “Style” magazine and “Wild Women, Painters of the Wilderness”, a book about a group of three Canadian wilderness artists of which Kathy is one.

The talk will be held at the Art Gallery of Bancroft, 10 Flint Ave. Bancroft, ON at 2:00 PM, Sunday September 25.  The talk will be followed with an informal Question and Answer session with the artist.

Anyone interested in this stimulating talk is encouraged to attend this free event.  This is the third Artist Talk at the Art Gallery of Bancroft this year.  The series was initiated this summer with the gallery's partnership  with the Hybla Residency.

 

 

ARTIST TALK AT AGB: TORONTO FILMMAKER LAURIE TOWNSHEND

Posted August 6, 2016

THE HYBLA RESIDENCY in partnership with The ART GALLERY OF BANCROFT

Presents

LAURIE TOWNSHEND, ARTIST TALK

Sunday August 21, 2016 at 2:00 PM.

 

The public is invited to hear artist, documentary filmmaker and educator, Laurie Townshend, give an informal talk about her art practice and the work she is developing while in residency in Hybla.

Toronto teacher and filmmaker, Laurie Townshend is writing, directing, and producing documentaries and narrative films for a growing audience.  Her take on human connectedness is explored in an online collection of 2-minute vignettes featuring strangers titled, Human Frequency Streetdocs. With a thematic lens aimed squarely at the resilience of the human spirit, her cinematic offerings extend to include acts of courage made visible through crisis. Townshend’s short film, The Railpath Hero (2013), is a gripping portrait of the threads of hope that hold a young athlete's life together in the wake of childhood sexual abuse.  In 2016, Townshend wrote and directed "Charley", a visually powerful documentary about civil rights activist and human rights lawyer, Charles Roach. 

Anyone interested in this stimulating talk where Laurie will discuss her work and current projects is encouraged to attend this free event. This is the first residency for Laurie in Hybla and the fourth time the Hybla Residency has partnered with the Art Gallery of Bancroft.

The talk will be held at the Art Gallery of Bancroft, 10 Flint Ave. Bancroft, ON at 2:00 PM, Sunday August 21. The talk and screening of her work will be followed with an informal Question and Answer session with the artist.

Initiated in 2014, The Hybla Residency is an opportunity for artists to develop and reflect on their art practice surrounded by the beauty of Hybla. The Residency Directors, Roy Mitchell and Ken Fraser welcome artists from various art practices to come and spend time in the residency's beautiful location, meet area artists and see their work. It is hoped that both local artists and the artist-in-residence will have a chance to exchange ideas and skills and inspire new and thought provoking art in a place that has inspired many for many years. A century-old farmhouse, studio converted from a century old barn and artist accommodation in a 1976 Rover Trailer provide a contemplative setting amongst the forests, fields and trails of Hybla, a hamlet 15 kilometres north of Bancroft.

No artist, or anyone for that matter, can visit the area and not be inspired by the natural beauty that our artistic community thrives in.” - The Hybla Residency Director, Roy Mitchell

Artist Talk by Keith Cole

Keith Cole returns to the Art Gallery of Bancroft as part of his artist residency to talk about his practice and upcoming projects.  The talk offers to be both informative and entertaining and an opportunity for local artists and people interested in the arts to chat informally after the talk in a Q and A session.  Last year's artist talk was informative, thought-provoking and entertaining; this year's promises to be as enlightening.

Keith Cole's Biography

Keith Coleʼs artistic practice collides with the interdisciplinary art forms of theatre, dance, film and performance and the intersections that they can create. He has appeared in films, television and performance events worldwide and is a recipient of a Harold Award (1999) a National Tap Dance Award (2004), the Roberto Ariganello Award (2007) a Dora Award Nomination for Outstanding Male Performance in a Musical (2008) a Pink Triangle Award (2000) and XTRA! Magazineʼs Mouthiest Queer Activist Award (2010). In 2010 Keith Cole was a leading contender in Toronto's Mayoral Election. He placed 8th in the overall election putting him in the top 10 of well over 80 candidates. He has written for FUSE Magazine, KAPSULA Magazine, The Dance Current, XTRA! dailyxtra.com and Fab Magazine. His writing also appears in several anthologies that have a queer focus. Keith Cole has a BFA from York University and a MFA from the Ontario College of Art and Design University (OCAD U). In 2014 and 2015 NOW Magazine readers voted him Torontoʼs Best Performance Artist. As an independent scholar his research work explores gossip, hearsay, rumours, theft, speculation and appropriation within the contemporary art world. In the fall of 2016 Cole will be a part of TORONTO at The Art Gallery Of Ontario with a month long performance.

The Hybla Residency

The Hybla Residency is an opportunity for artists to develop and reflect on their art practice surrounded by the beauty of Hybla. The Residency Directors, Roy Mitchell and Ken Fraser, welcome artists from various artistic practices to come and spend time in the residency's scenic location, meet area artists and see their work.  It is hoped that both local artists and the artist-in-residency will have a chance to exchange ideas and skills and inspire new and thought provoking art in a place that has inspired many for many years.

Hamlet of Hybla

Before the railroad arrived in 1907, Hybla was a farming community. The arrival of steam engines created a thriving village. On the main street were two stores, boarding houses and churches. A blacksmith shop and a sawmill made up Hybla’s other industries. When the railroads switched from coal to diesel, the station and boarding house were no longer needed and Hybla became another ghost town. The Hybla Residency takes place on Farmtasia, 100 acres of forest, fields and trails. The farmhouse dates back to the late 1800s.  Artists have access to a 400 square foot artist studio created from a century old farmhouse, and stay in a beautiful 1979 Rover trailer.

Rattle-Making Workshop to Enhance AGB Exhibition of Algonquin Artists

Posted June 9, 2016

The Art Gallery of Bancroft is excited to announce that the upcoming exhibition by Algonquin artists, titled “Finding Critical Mass”, will be accompanied by a unique one-day workshop on rattle-making. The workshop, held on Sunday, August 7, 2016 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., will be led by Ada Tinney of Faraday Township, a member of the Algonquin Nation Kijicho Manito Madaouskarini Community Bancroft/Baptiste Lake Region.

Ada is an accomplished artist in a number of media, including drum and rattle-making, stone and wood carving, and stained glass.  She has taught drum-making to many adult classes, as well as students at Our Lady of Mercy and North Hastings Secondary School.  Fourteen years ago, she organized the Faraday Drumming Circle, which continues to be held on the second Thursday each month. 

In the workshop, students will cut and stitch together pieces of deerskin rawhide cut from a pattern, then paint a personal design.  The students will also decorate handles of beaver-chewed sticks with feather, beads, deerskin lacing prior to attaching them to the rattle.  

 

 

 

The AGB is extremely enthusiastic about the Finding Critical Mass exhibition to be displayed from August 3 to September 3.  The exhibition, curated by Robin Tinney, is an ambitious undertaking in attempting to represent artists from all ten Algonquin communities of Ontario. According to curator Tinney: “Finding Critical Mass” is about realizing that Algonquin First Nations in Ontario need to choose: to collect, share and encourage our cultural past, present and future.  We need to share our crafts, stories and artwork to heal the fractures within our communities and within ourselves.  Without critical mass, we may cease to exist in any meaningful way.  We must remember, and we must grow.” 

 “Finding Critical Mass” is such a unique undertaking that curator Tinney has indicated he will be exploring opportunities for the exhibit to travel to other parts of Canada, circumstances permitting.

The Gallery has received generous grants from the Town of Bancroft and individuals to expand the cultural experience of the exhibition. In addition to the rattle-making workshop, the AGB hopes to be able to offer other experiences, including a traditional smudging ceremony at the opening reception for the exhibition on Friday, August 5th at 7:30 p.m. Part of the mandate of the Gallery is to enhance the outreach of art into the Bancroft and area community. Stated President Barbara Allport, the AGB is “excited to increase awareness of the culture and history in this area”.

The Exhibition by Algonquin artists is sponsored by Marla Allison.

He is an artist with a background in dance and performance. In 2014, Keith won the best performance artist in NOW Magazine's Best of Toronto 2014 Poll.

Among the topics Keith will touch on are:

*Tom Thomson - the creation of a Canadian art hero and the mysteries about his life. How was his public persona created? How is he "cleaned up" for consumption?

The Talk will be followed by a Question and Answer session.

While in Hybla he will be working on these ideas and discuss at the talk how he will develop and present them as art pieces.

2015: A Year of Rejuvenation!

 Posted September 2, 2015

The year 2015 will be a memorable one for the AGB on many fronts. We had an inspirational Michal Manson student exhibition, a very successful annual juried show, wonderful curated exhibitions and very popular workshop offerings. What more could we want?

A number of aspects of the Gallery had a dated feeling, so revitalization became the mission. First, a new logo for the organization. In place of the previous logo and colour scheme, local media design consultant Dianne Eastman created a simple, bold and eye-catching scarlet logo that now appears on all AGB communications, including the large sign on Flint Avenue.

         

Next up, the Gallery interior. The Gallery Shop (formerly the Gift Shop) underwent a major facelift thanks again to Dianne’s organizational skills. The old layout failed to make the best use of the available space, so desk and display space were shuffled to optimize the Gallery Shop space. The result has been a much more spacious, bright and inviting feeling for shoppers, browsers and AGB members.

 

But the interior makeover didn’t stop there. The back wall of the Gallery Exhibition space was awkward and unsightly, with storage area easily viewed by patrons. The partition of the back wall was extended to close in the storage area, thus providing not only a cleaner look, but also increasing valuable wall space for exhibition displays. New ceiling track lighting to improve the illumination of the wall displays topped off the interior upgrade.

Although the sign with the new logo was in place on Flint Avenue, a fresher look to the entrance was needed. Updating the exterior of the Gallery was the final effort, completed as two different initiatives. To clean up the approach to the Gallery entrance, the old sod (weeds mostly!) was removed and replaced with maintenance-free river stone. This was a visual and environmental triumph (no water, fertilizer, weed-killer or lawnmower engine emissions)!

The second project was re-painting of the Gallery building exterior. In place of the cranberry and gunmetal blue tones from a generation ago, the new colour scheme incorporated the scarlet of the logo with black and driftwood grey. The painting effort truly relied on the fortitude of the volunteers who laboured on ladders and scaffolding through the hottest week of the summer.

 

With autumn fast approaching, who knows what more can be accomplished in 2015? It may be time for the volunteers to rest on their collective laurels and enjoy their creative efforts, maybe while thinking of future projects. One thing for certain is that the Art Gallery of Bancroft will continue to evolve as one of the best little art galleries in Ontario!

Thanks to the many volunteers who took part in these transformational activities. The Gallery has never looked better!
