Photo Club Show Opens

June 12, 2019
PEI Photo Club Annual Print Show Opens June 12
Photography-Club

The PEI Photo Club will be hosting their 37th annual print exhibition at the Gallery @ The Guild from June 12 to 23. The public is invited to attend the grand opening on Wednesday, June 12 at 7 pm.

There’s something new about the exhibition this year. The images won’t be grouped according to categories such as landscapes, people, and nature as they have had been in years past. Rather, exhibition spaces will be dedicated to the
photographers who will be showcasing their work. The theme of the 2019 show is “Through My Mind’s Eye,” and club members have been encouraged to submit small collections of related images.

“The annual photo show is evolving,” says club president, Paul Vreeland. “Last year’s show was a first in that it wasn’t a competition with judges and prizes. We wanted it to reflect who we are as a community of photographers. This year, we
hope that each member’s collection will say something about the photographer and give more credit to him or her, rather than to a singular, prize-winning photo.
The show also encourages us to think in terms of working on creative projects.”

Everyone is invited to see the show during gallery hours which are Monday to Saturday from 12 to 5 and one hour before show times. The PEI Photo Club is grateful to all of the volunteers who make the show possible.

This Art Exhibition is a visual journey of Three P.E.I. women that are close friends and have diverse backgrounds but similar interests. This Exhibition features over 75 chosen works that relate both directly to the Island and their own individual journey through life. They each have their own distinctive styles to convey their message to the viewers. Some artworks are scenes of the Island to interest tourists, some imaginative and dreamlike to interest the free thinker and some more realistic of life around them. The art works have been completed in the last three years and their goal in life is to inspire others.

Abstract and Amazing

Abstract Joy: The Amazing Natural Beauty That Surrounds Us, work by Julea Boswell
May 15, 2019 through May 26
Julia-Boswell
Abstract Joy features lively abstract art which Julea describes as “providing a nice hit of colour to warm us up
for summer”. Her imaginative pieces take shape with a blend of recalled imagery, thoughts and emotion.
“Although the work is abstract it is pretty straightforward,” says Julea. “I simply try to capture moments of
spontaneous joy and express this in my art. What stays with me from these moments becomes my inner
springboard for creation. Like many artists, the amazing natural beauty that surrounds me, especially on PEI,
is a primary source of inspiration.”

Black & White at the Guild

Black & White: Where Lines Can Take Us By LiliAnne Webster
At the Guild through April 30
original
We have become all too familiar with the phrase “Black and White” meaning clearly defined
lines. This series explores the use of a line. LiliAnne’s goal is using black and white lines to
communicate more abstract thinking and to question how we interpret lines. Black lines on
white and white lines on black; the lines go from organic shapes that freely flow to purposefully
made marks that create figurative forms.
In this series LiliAnne explores her understanding of lines and pushes herself to look at what
lines mean and how they capture the natural flow of her environment. She limits herself to the
simple black and white palette thus challenging herself to look at the world differently. She
explores movement and emotion with new vision and insight. What began as a simple task with
ink pen on paper in a mindless act of meditation soon began to create form and shape that
echoed representative patterns. Continuing in this process faces appeared with almost
fingerprint patterning, trees grew in wood-grain patterns, lines of poetry evoked an artistic
response and flowers and leaves moved on page after page of exploration.

Howard’s ‘Healing’ at The Guild

emily-howard
‘The Texture of Healing’ by Emily Howard at The Guild.
We all have energy that we radiate as we walk through life. Places that we consider sacred tend to have a beautiful energetic glow to them. The salted air at the beach, a walk through the woods on a fall day. These places have a way of healing people of everyday worry and anxiety. You simply trade your frazzled state for that of these calm places.
I have found that people can generate this type of healing, calm energy within themselves and in doing that, heal the people around them just by simply being there. What does this healing look like in the air swirling around people? Places?

The Texture of Healing is a story told through paintings. It’s also an offering of an energy exchange when we all need it the most, mid winter. Come and experience the calm.

All paintings can be purchased through donating to Lennon House.

Through March 31st.

7th Story Window Ledge Story

March 8, 2019 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm at The Guild
Fast-paced and full of energy, this sophisticated satire takes place on the window ledge of a seven-storey apartment building where a man is contemplating suicide.

Unknown

Endlessly interrupted by a variety of quirky, self-absorbed tenants, he becomes drawn into the absurdity of their daily lives.

7 STORIES is a meta-theatrical gem of a black comedy, full of eccentric characters with a wistfully existential conclusion.

This is the Festival’s first full-length production, and first Canadian work. 2019 marks 30 years since the premiere of this Canadian classic by multi-award winning Canadian playwright Morris Panych.
