Preparation Suites  — Celeste Cares & Alex Sutcliffe, undergraduate exhibitors — Gallery 1

Celeste Cares paints a mushy, girlish muse in various states of activity. Applying lipstick; combing hair; spilling coffee – these states of getting ready prove to be messy, chaotic, and fun. Alex Sutcliffe’s oil paintings abstract figures and forms in nebulous, unreal landscapes. Muted colours and rich brushwork reveal hazy figures that wait, withdraw, and dance in a visualized space of existential malaise, suspended on a stage where they prepare for nothingness.July 17, 2019

Ocean Treasures: Anthropocene Artifacts —
Jennifer McLatchy, IDPhD Candidate— Gallery 2A

Artist-researcher Jennifer MacLatchy combs shorelines in Nova Scotia by kayak and by foot, searching for and collecting marine debris, or, anthropocene era artifacts. This exhibition is a museum-like display of artifacts that have been documented and preserved with great care in order to study the relationship between humans and the ocean in a time of great change and loss. This work is an enactment of small acts of great care aimed at addressing massive and overwhelming environmental problems. In doing this, it engages with feelings of futility, grief, and maybe hope.Not Place
