A public reception Friday, October 20, will celebrate the opening of an exhibition at the Art Gallery of Windsor which features artists with ties to the University.
The 2017 Windsor-Essex Triennial of Contemporary Art, entitled “Downtown/s: Urban Renewal Today for Tomorrow,” includes works by UWindsor instructors Michael Darroch, Cyndra MacDowall, Nadja Pelkey, Lee Rodney, and Terry Sefton, and alumni Joshua Bacock, Vince Kogut, Luke Madaford, Joey Stewart, and Julie Rae Tucker.
The show aims to reflect the shifts in Windsor’s economic, agricultural, social, and cultural growth. Curator Jaclyn Meloche considers it an invitation to the public to experience anew the City of Windsor, from its alleyways to its picturesque waterfront.
Friday’s reception starts at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $15, free for gallery members.
A walk through Windsor’s core on the theme “Reconnaissance, Heart + Soul,” led by the Hamilton Perambulatory Unit and the In/Terminus Research Group, will leave the gallery at noon.
Alumnus Chris Edwards (BA 1983, MA 1985) will lead a second walk Sunday, October 22, at 1 p.m.
The exhibition runs through January 28. The Art Gallery of Windsor is located at 401 Riverside Drive West.
