Words and Images: Lit-Art

Words and Images: Lit-Art is a collaboration of local artists who contribute original written works and visual artists working in mixed genres and mediums; the visual artists will create original pieces inspired by the written word.

There is an exhibition of written works and visual artworks in the Alcove Gallery from January 26th, 2020 to February 23rd, 2020.

There is a Festival Performance on Sunday, February 16 @1pm, where each writer will talk for a moment about their work, then read it to the audience. Each visual artist who has chosen that work will then stand by their creation and explain what in the writing motivated them to develop their visual work.

IMAGES OF HOME: TWO PERSPECTIVES

Paintings by Jennifer Zsolt and photographs by Tom Zsolt.

Sunday March 1 to Sunday April 5, 2020.

JENNIFER ZSOLT:

I live in Georgina with my husband, two dogs, three horses and four chickens. I have worked in many mediums, from watercolour to high realism with coloured pencil.
I have been a member of SOYRA and have entered juried shows in Aurora and here in Georgina. As a child, I carried a pack of markers and a doodle pad everywhere: getting a fresh set was pure bliss!  Right now, I am enjoying the wonderful creative surge that comes with showing up at the easel every day.

TOM ZSOLT:

I have documented the changing Ontario countryside for over 30 years. In 1999 my book Country Matters was published, documenting the changing land, people and lifestyles in rural Ontario.

In 2009, my work was selected for a major Canadian exhibition in Beijing, China, entitled Canadian Cameras at Work. It was extended to a 10-city tour of China, with my photograph Niagara Falls selected as the poster image.

I lecture internationally and have often been featured on CBC, with works appearing on the cover of novels and in magazines. My photography is collected by private individuals, corporations and institutions including Ryerson University, Georgina Arts Centre, Royal LePage and Borealis Capital.

The Best of the Best of the Best

A new exhibition where the criterion is that you want to show the very best artwork you have ever created, hanging on the wall, or placed on a pedestal, in the Main Gallery !

If you consider your 10-foot by 40-foot mural to be the best, well, there is a space consideration… Each artwork should occupy a maximum of 6 square feet, with ‘reasonable’ dimensions (i.e. 3ft x 2ft is good; 6ins x 12ft is not).

Free-standing media should respect the same size qualification, seen front-on.

If you think you may need more space, or if you need more explanation, contact the curator.

• The deadline for submissions is Friday, April 3.

The exhibition runs from April 12 to May 17.

Qualifying exhibitors are members of the GACAG.
