Opening Reception: ARTICULATIONS
2017-11-23 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Food – Bar – Wheelchair Accessible – All welcome
Co-curated by Rose Ekins and Myka Burke, Articulations (November 23-January 6) features the artwork of 40 women/femmes artists working in the National Capital Region (unceded Algonquin territory). As a landmark year in terms of Canadian colonial history, it is a crucial time to identify ways in which our country can and should grow. Historically and currently, female-identifying artists (especially those of colour) are, sadly, underrepresented in Canada’s art galleries.
As a gallery run by women, Studio Sixty Six wishes to focus our efforts towards encouraging local Canadian women/femmes artists. Co-Curator Myka Burke interviewed all 40 artists regarding their experiences and perspectives as women/femme artists working in the region, compiled and available to listen during the exhibition and on a special online minisite.
10% of all artwork sales from the duration of the exhibition will be donated to OCTEVAW (Ottawa Coalition to End Violence Against Women), who will be present at the reception to share information about their impressive initiatives.
More information, including special sponsorships, coming soon.
