INNOVATIONS ’19 – Juried Contemporary Craft Exhibition – Upper Gallery An exhibition of contemporary craft by artists from across Canada. Juried by: Dr Denis Longchamps (CEO, Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery), Sarah Quinton (Curatorial Director, Textile Museum of Canada), Stuart Reid (Independent Curator, Arts Writer, and Board Member for the Ontario Craft Council) From emerging artists and seasoned creators, the range of submissions was an impressive mix of ideas, materials, and skill levels. From the fine detail to the sculptural statement, from functional objects to conceptual artworks, the resulting exhibition is a feast of personal expressions, full of character and individuality. It is evident that today's makers are merging handmade tradition with astute commentary on contemporary life. The awards go to creators who presented works that are unique, and technically sound. RETOOLED: New Assemblages by Justin Cosman and David A. Hill – Project Gallery Reclaiming the discarded, David Hill & Justin Cosman reexamine refuse and the forgotten for their aesthetics and form. Primarily working with metal, established photographer and sculptor Hill ensures whimsy is part of his additive process, with old buttons, knobs and levers rearranged to arrive at abstract figurations in the overall composition. Emerging artist Cosman keeps to the non-objective, exploring space, shape, colour and texture through waste often associated with construction and packaging. Remnants of plywood, cardboard, and sprayfoam become his muse. RECRAFTED – Atrium Gallery As makers, artists often have a way of looking beyond the original form or intention of objects to see their potential as raw material. Re-Crafted presents artists from the North Simcoe community and beyond who have submmited 2D & 3D works of art that incorporate reclaimed materials to arrive at something new. Collages, assemblages, reconstructions, deconstructions, wrappings, splicings and reconfigurations all encouraged

Starring Michael Torontow. This wonderful production charts the lengths we’ll go to for those we love. With his mother in hospital and a somewhat unhelpful father, a young boy constructs a list of little “brilliant” things to comfort her. From ice-cream and Kung Fu movies, to Christopher Walken’s voice and laughing so hard you shoot milk through your nose. What begins as a simple and naive way of dealing with tragedy becomes a life-long reminder that joy can be found in the seemingly insignificant. In fact, the unremarkable can become something quite remarkable. Directed by Steven Schipper

A simple game between gamblers, before long becomes an intricate trail of deceits within deceits within deceits. And just when we think we have it all worked out, we realize the jokers are pulling the wool over our very eyes. Nobody is whom, or what they seem in our new, gender-fluid version of Nikolai Gogol’s genius satire of card sharps and confidence tricksters. One highly entertaining story of people who gamble, hustle and cheat. Directed by Esther Jun.

Newfie Electra is a modern-day adaptation of a classic, Electra, by Sophocles. We are in a small out-port fishing village in Newfoundland. The main character, Tanya, is grieving the death of her Fadder at the hand of her Mudder. She spends day in and day out submerged at the fish plant plotting her next step. She wants revenge. Between jigs and the reels, we explore the storytelling of this wacky character and what it’s like to live in her shoes. Will she honour her Fadder and avenge his death? Only time will tell. AND Performing her original songs, music she was raised with, and even some tunes by the late Don Wright himself, Alyssa weaves together a tale about growing up in his musical shadow and under his silencing oppression; then eventually using the cello and the other tools she’d inherited to find her own voice, heal from the past, and turn even the most shattered bits into art.
