Sundays in the Studio

Join us for family time and be engaged in creative studio activities led by local artists. Presented with the support of Anne Safranyos & family, we are pleased to offer Sundays in the Studio for a returning 5th year.

Come and join us in the studio each Sunday for the month of August, with featured artist, Talysha Bujold-Abu.

Talysha Bujold-Abu is a multifaceted artist, illustrator, and art educator. She holds an Honours BFA from McMaster University, and recently completed an artist residency at NZ Pacific Studios in New Zealand. Bujold-Abu’s practice is rooted in Critical Race Theory; focusing on rejecting the constructs of race and stereotype in Western culture, while integrating the authentic perspective/experiences of a mixed-race woman. This lens is attempting to remedy the micro-aggressions and racism associated with an ‘unknown’ identity, racial ambiguity, and concepts of belonging. Talysha is a first year MFA candidate in the Visual Arts program at the University of Windsor.

Sunday August 6th

“You are what you eat” Collage portraits and food

Collage a portrait of yourself, using food items and kitchen utensils. Begin with rough pencil drawing, and then collage. Considering why we choose the foods we do, or kitchen implements – cultural associations, feminist perspectives, ‘favourites’.

Sunday August 13th

Soup Cans? Not Always! Campbell’s Soup Everything

Pop-culture, iconic ‘Campbell’s Soup Cans’ Andy Warhol tribute. Taking an item, and turning into a soup-can look-a-like (milk, beans, corn, and the like). How do we influence the presence of pop-art (from this era) in today’s culture? How does switching the initial ‘object’ change the meaning, and why do we pick the new objects we do? Is the symbolism being carried over?

Sunday August 20th

A Heaping Plate-full Plate Painting

Creating your favourite meal, an homage to the plate! Sharpie drawing, or painting on the plate. Modge-podge to seal it afterwards. An introspective look at what we consider to be ‘food’ customarily found during their favourite meal – why these foods? How does this relate to childhood or adulthood? Our cultural backgrounds or community?

Sunday August 27th
