In the spirit of democratic and accessible art-making and experience, Graven Feather Studio & Gallery will be hosting the work of more than one hundred artists through the month of November. In the 1st annual exhibition of IN THE ROUND, artists will be showcasing multiple pieces of art on small 4-inch circular supports provided for this fun and innovative group show. Come and see this beautiful collection of small rounds!
Responding to a country-wide call-out, each artist was given carte blanche on 6 small disks, with the only caveat being that they respect the dimensions of the circle. Un-juried and without limits on materials or theme–the result is an extensive constellation of varied and exquisitely produced circular art.
"The feedback and variety of submissions has been amazing! And the work far surpasses our expectations. We wanted to find way to reach out to new artists, to make it fun and interesting, and to have it be something that anyone could do in their own way" say directors Erin Candela and Pam Lobb, co-founders of the venue. Graven Feather, which has been open to the public for two years, has a mandate to show emerging artists and to be an accessible and open forum for art and creativity. It operates as both a studio and workshop space as well as a gallery.
Showing from November 1st-30th, 2013, the reception for IN THE ROUND will be held on Thursday November 7th from 7-10pm. There will also be a talk on Unusual Supports in Art given by OCAD lecturer Holly Wheatcroft at 6pm on November 7th. Space is limited, so get your tickets early (reserve here). More information on the show and how to get involved at Graven Feather is available at www.gravenfeather.ca. Or pop in and visit Thurs-Saturday at 906 Queen West, Toronto Ontario.
