The Inverness County Centre for the Arts will be presenting its latest exhibit, Measures of Absence, starting this Saturday and running until Sunday, Feb. 28.
This group exhibition will bring together the work of 11 artists from across Canada including Laura Bucci, Anthony A. Clementi, Clara Congdon, Brandt Eisner, Jessie Fraser, Robin Gislain Shumbusho, Coralee MacDougall, Nasim Makaremi, Tyler Muzzin, Jessy Watson and Ulrike Zoellner. They will be exhibiting works in painting, photography, found objects, sculpture, drawing, weaving, mixed media embroidery and collage.
The juried exhibition deals with a variety of themes speaking to commonalities of our collective current experiences. Some artists reflect on encounters of loss or change, others consider feelings of possibility and resilience. Many are concerned with how we individually and socially make space to be together in the world. Some of the artists ask us to consider our relationship to memory and touch. Some ask how to navigate an inhospitable world. The issue of living through a crisis is also present in many of the works.
Because of COVID-19 restrictions, there will be no opening reception but one of the exhibiting artists, Jessy Watson, will be on hand from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. on Saturday.
The gallery and gift shop hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. For more information, go to www.invernessarts.com.
