Through Our Eyes
Participants at the Centre for the Arts in Human Development were invited to take part in a series of five art wokshops led by Montreal artist Myrna Bercovitch, culminating in an exhibition titled "Through Our Eyes." The artists were guided in making three works of art using elements from Impressionism, Fauvism and Cubism, personalizing these in their exploration of mixed media collage on bowls and canvasses, the latter including a "selfie."
The initial showing of these works was in Concordia University's Jesuit Conference Centre on May 25th, 2016, and was followed by a remount in the Oscar Peterson Concert Hall during the Centre's 20th Anniversary celebrations. Both exhibits were curated by Katrina Driver. Accompanying the exhibit were photographs of the artists at work by Centre volunteer, Victoria Moraes. A film of the process was also made by videographer Will Mackenzie.
