Donna Akrey

Saturday 28 February, Saturday 7 March, and Saturday 14 March 12NN-3PM

Universal Remote will continue to grow and evolve over the duration of the exhibition. Artist Donna Akrey will be working in the space creating new parts for the installation. Join in on some of the making any time between 12NN and 4PM, on the next three Saturdays.

Built to engage the public and encourage collaboration, this installation asks the viewers to take the controls and to consider, from a closer perspective, the movement of the landscape (be it urban, suburban, industrial, abstract) and their hand in it—even if imaginary. It also revels in the chaos, beauty and possibilities of the spaces we live in.

The Brock University Art Club in conjunction with Brock University, will be hosting its annual Juried Art Exhibition at the Niagara Artists Centre. Traditionally, the jurors are two professors chosen from the Brock Visual Arts department, this year the jurors are Donna Akery and Kristen Patterson. They have selected a total of twenty student works for this show.

The Brock Visual Arts program will be relocating their studies to the downtown area of St. Catharines in fall of 2015. The Juried Exhibition of 2015 is titled “Migration” inspired by this move. It will showcase a selection of artists from Brock’s Visual Art Undergraduate Program as they make a transition to their new downtown home to further
strengthen their relationship with the arts community.

*****Come out on Friday March 6th between 7pm – 9:30pm for the closing reception of Migration. There will be refreshments and the awards for select works will be announced at 8pm.*****
