reception 1:30-4:30pm
Abstract Sculpture by Irene Sirko: Living Stone. Imagine sitting in front of a roughly hewn stone. You shut your eyes, your hands mould, chisel, chip, sand and shine. The stone takes on shapes of its own as if it knew its destiny and only needed an assistant to guide it in its journey. Irene Sirko doesn't know what will become of a new block of stone. It is as if some outside force shapes and steers her hands. Irene is a member of Sculptors Society of Canada and Ukrainian Association of Visual Artists of Canada.  Irene studied art at Wilfrid Laurier University, Toronto School of Art, Haliburton School of Arts and through private studies ... more

Gallery A and The ArtLab.
The goal of Gallery A and The ArtLab is to foster and support a thriving art community. Programs provide accessible opportunities for artists and art communities to present and discuss artwork, collaborate, share ideas and be inspired. They are designed to be artist-driven, self-guided and flexible.
Unlike the rest of the Robert McLaughlin Gallery, these spaces are not curated – instead artists may apply to use these spaces through a competitive process, and applications are selected by a committee of artists from Durham Region. Priority is given to underrepresented artists and projects that encourage experimentation, collaboration and align with the RMG's statement of purpose.
Information session: Thur 18 Feb, 7-8pm.
Next application deadline: Sat 15 Oct 2016 (for projects taking place 1 Mar 2017 – 31 Aug 2017). http://rmg.on.ca/gallery-a-and-the-artlab/.

Each participant will then create a unique soft sculpture that fits them.

26 Jun: Take Action! Join Franz Erhard Walther, a contemporary German artist who invites you to engage with both sculpture and the institution in new and moving ways. We will begin with a tour of Call to Action, Walther's first Canadian solo exhibition, followed by the activation of his wearable fabric forms and the chance to design your own imaginative Werksatz (First Work Set).
10 Jul: A Sound Story. In this workshop inspired by Ulla von Brandenburg's film It Has a Golden Sun and an Elderly Grey Moon (2016), we will collaboratively write a theatrical play without dialogue. After a short investigation into the qualities of sound and silence, we will create sound-producing instruments with plastic, metal, wood and re-purposed materials. We will then compose a musical score for our play using our new instruments. A performance of our play will be recorded, available for participants to access digitally, after which participants will take their instruments home.

28 Aug: All Spelled Out. Experiment with felting techniques and make your own expressive letters using felting techniques inspired by Franz Erhard Walther's Das Neue Alphabet (1990-96). Together, participants will arrange their letters to create a brand new alphabet before taking their letters home.
