Closing Reception Friday 6 March 7pm-9:30pm
Dennis Tourbin Members Gallery at NAC

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.*****


PSYCHOS & ALICES
A series of collages by Clelia Scala
Reception Saturday 7 March 2pm-4pm
Niagara Artists Centre
354 St Paul Street, St Catharines
The collages in this series are translations of Victorian artist John Tenniel’s illustrations for the 1865 edition of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. My collages illustrate Canadian poet Steve McCaffery’s Alice in Plunderland (BookThug 2015), a recreation of Carroll’s children’s book. McCaffery’s Plunderland transforms Wonderland’s familiar characters into a sketchy band of addicts and street hustlers, their songs and hijinks mired in drugged-out absurdity. To turn wonder into plunder, I incorporated into Tenniel’s woodcuts elements from Gustave Doré’s Victorian illustrations for Paradise Lost and The Divine Comedy, 19th-century Punch and Puckcartoons, old scientific illustrations, ads from 1950s Saturday Evening Posts, Krazy Katcartoons and many other sources.
