The Art Gallery of Algoma (AGA) will be presenting a virtual Artists Talk at 3 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 12.

The topic?

The exhibition Wrapped in Culture currently on display at the AGA.

The exhibition is organized and toured by the Ottawa Art Gallery, a collaborative project of ten Indigenous artists from Canada and Australia. The exhibition is on display until Nov. 14 at the AGA.

It includes the work of Barry Ace, an Ottawa artist who is a band member of M’Chigeeng First Nation, Manitoulin Island. 

Ace uses mixed media and textiles, his work available for viewing at the National Gallery of Canada, the Canadian Museum of History, the Art Gallery of Ontario and the Nordamerika Native Museum in Zurich.  

Other participating artists include:

  • Rosalie Favell, a photo-based artist from Winnipeg, who draws artistic inspiration from her family history and Métis (Cree/English) heritage to produce a complex self-portrait of her experiences as a contemporary woman. Her work can be viewed at the Indigenous Art Centre (Gatineau), the National Gallery of Canada (Ottawa) and the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian (Washington,D.C.)
  • Adrian Stimson, a member of the Siksika (Blackfoot) Nation. Working through painting, performance and installation, Stimson explores landscapes and portrays various personas

The AGA is inviting art lovers to hear the artists speak about their work and this particular exhibition.

Those wishing to attend must register in advance for this webinar.
