Community Curatorial Project

Inspired Connections: A Community Curatorial Project
January 25 – February 3, 2013
Opening reception: Saturday January 26 from 2-4 pm

Inspired Connections will give a group of local artists the opportunity to work closely with the gallery’s permanent collection, identifying connections in subject, medium and style that inspire their own artistic methods. Each participant will select a number of pieces from the collection and curate these into a display that also includes their own related work. The artists will learn about the collection and how it is developed and cared for, and about the curatorial process. They will be inspired by the wealth of artwork available.

The GPAG Collection includes over 1500 works of art, many by artists who live or work in the region. There is also a small collection of historic Canadian paintings and drawings and many fine examples of the book arts, printmaking and works on paper. Canadian fine craft and contemporary culture are also represented. Every year we include at least one exhibition drawn primarily from the Permanent Collection in our schedule. We would, however, like to see many more people enjoy these works of art and bringing community members into the vault to develop curatorial projects is one way to make this  happen.
