Bridging the Gap
Silverthorn Collegiate Institute
 

Exhibition Duration:  June 25 to July 21, 2019

Silverthorn Collegiate Institute (SCI) art students participated in the Bridging the Gap Program with students in elementary schools and with senior citizens in residential homes where they introduced painting, clay work, music and dance.

The goal of the project was not only to share creative knowledge and skills, but was to facilitate connections and bonding between the diverse age groups which would not have naturally otherwise occurred.

They produced a collaborative art installation representing the dreams and hope of all of the participants, creating an artwork reflecting the integration of the all their voices. The various age groups were represented in their final art piece, which expressed the power of working together to create a strong voice in an original way.

The Net

Olivia Brouwer

Exhibition Duration: July 8 to August 9, 2019Brouwer Olivia IMG 20190705 112710588

 

 

The Net represents objects or ideas we value that may weigh us down, causing us to waver from our ultimate purpose. We must cast off a “net” of everyday burdens in order to pursue what we have found to be right and true, and, ultimately, seek clarity, become aware of our actions, thoughts, and behaviour, and open our hearts to change.
 
The idea for this piece comes from the Biblical story of the first disciples in Matthew 4:18-22, where Jesus approaches a group of fishermen and invites them to follow and learn from him. Instantly, they accept his invitation and leave their nets, fishing boats, and occupations – basically everything they knew and relied on for survival. This piece attempts to draw attention to their willingness to leave that which weighed them down in order to pursue something greater, and encourages the viewer to do the same.
 
Olivia Brouwer is an emerging artist from Hamilton, Ontario. In 2016, she graduated from the Art and Art History joint program, specializing in painting and printmaking, at the University of Toronto Mississauga and Sheridan College Institute of Technology. As a partially blind artist, Olivia explores the idea of blindness through her art, melding organic and geometric abstraction with scenes inspired by real objects or stories. She uses blindness as a metaphor to examine ideas surrounding belief, meaning, clarity, and sight - both physical and spiritual. Her most recent work explores the symbology of clarity and sight in Biblical contexts. Website www.oliviabrouwer.com
