The exhibition will feature artists:

Juror Kendra Ainsworth, Curator of Contemporary Art at the Art Gallery of Mississauga, and board member at Gallery 44, will be in attendance to congratulate the Ontario artists featured in this multi-disciplinary exhibition.
Ainsworth identified “of the 95 artists who submitted work this year, those whose work is included in the final selection demonstrated a strong command of medium, and - a theme that emerged as I reviewed the submissions - a strong sense of history, be it of material, tradition, or the personal.”
Back to the Drawing Board is an exhibition of the collaborative work of artist-educators at the intersection process and labour. The show features large-scale, mixed media and site-specific installations of collaborative drawings.
This work is supported by the Ontario Arts Council

Artist Talk: How Pest Happened
Sun Sept 18 11:30 am
Monsters and miniature fantasy hybrids, museum dioramas, hyper real images from news headlines and the unseen world of the imagination are rich creative territory for Toronto-based visual artist Amy Swartz. In this artist's talk Amy will explore how soldiers, princesses and farm animals mix with bees and butterflies to reveal patterns within the human world. The artist will also discuss her process, research path as well as her artistic inspirations and the ethical challenges revolving around collecting from the natural world for art making purposes.
