Curator to lead tour of AGW art exhibition

This year’s AGW Biennial has a great array of works, which curator Iain Baxter& says represent the new energized spirit of Windsor. A professor emeritus of visual arts, he will lead a tour of the exhibition at the Art Gallery of Windsor this Friday, October 14.

Baxter& is not the only participant with a UWindsor connection. Most of the more than 30 local artists showcased have studied or taught at the School of Visual Arts.

Biologists hope nesting boxes attract swallows to research centre

If you build it, they will come.

That’s the hope of a team from the Department of Biological Sciences who installed 51 nest boxes at the University’s Pelee Environmental Research Centre on Saturday, August 27, to attract tree swallows, a blue-and-white species of songbird that breeds in the area.

“Tree swallows are an important part of our local bird community and they are excellent study animals,” said biology professor Dan Mennill, an ornithologist who helped to organize the project.
