Join fellow AGG members, supporters, and art lovers at the Art Gallery of Ontario for an exclusive tour of Denyse Thomasos: just beyond with Sally Frater, AGG Curator of Contemporary Art and co-curator of just beyond. Frater will share her deep understanding and research into the work of the late Trinidadian-Canadian artist Denyse Thomasos (1964-2012), who left an indelible, yet frequently overlooked, mark on contemporary painting. The career retrospective brings together more than 70 works, many rarely seen, to show how she challenged the limits of abstraction, infusing personal and political content through the innovative use of formalist techniques.

This program is free for AGG Members and includes admission to the Art Gallery of Ontario for the day. Non-members must pay AGO admission fees. Transportation is not included. Registration is required as space is limited; please contact Nicole Neufeld at nneufeld@artgalleryofguelph.ca to confirm your attendance.

Free | In Person | Art Gallery of Guelph

Join us for a conversation between artist Insoon Ha and curator Sally Frater, discussing Ha’s installation Dirge, now on view at the Art Gallery of Guelph, while also reflecting on how this exhibition relates to ongoing themes in Ha’s practice. Together, they will touch on issues that are woven throughout her practice spanning over three decades. This in-person conversation also invites you to experience the way Ha’s compelling installation transforms space, making room to acknowledge the enormity of feelings of loss both personal and collective, and hear the artist speak about how Dirge creates openings for grief and mourning.

Free | In person | Drop in

Calling all families with young artists and the young at heart – spend Family Day afternoon exploring printmaking and collaborating on a community project! Join us at the gallery Monday, February 20, between 1 pm and 4 pm, for a free guided printmaking workshop and community-engaged project. As a drop-in event, participants – children and caregivers – will learn how to design, carve and hand-print a single colour print using a variety of tools and techniques. All printmakers will create and take home their own printmaking block that can be used over and over again and create two printed banners – one of these will become part of a community banner quilt that will be assembled and displayed at the Art Gallery of Guelph. Come and collaborate with your friends, family and neighbors in the Guelph community!

This program is designed for kids aged 4-14 with their caregiver(s), though all ages are welcome. Please note: children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. All materials are provided. No experience is required. Come dressed for a mess!
