About FIELDWORK

FIELDWORK is run by a team of artists (The Collective) that volunteer their time and energy to make FIELDWORK a vibrant and dynamic destination for the creation and experience of site-specific artwork in and around a field in eastern Ontario. Susie Osler, Chris Osler, and Sheila Macdonald are the present members of the FIELDWORK Collective. They look after the site, co-ordinate and promote projects, share administrative duties and make joint curatorial decisions. And from time to time they also create their own FIELDWORK installations. Barbara Meneley and Erin Robertson have also been active members of the FIELDWORK Collective.

FIELDWORK began in July 2008 with the installation Spec-u-late (Chris Osler) followed by Migra-scoping (Chris Grosset, Autumn 2008),  Winter Gestures/Beacon Whispers (Susie Osler, Winter 2008/09), and Heavenly Blue (Erin Robertson, Spring 2009). These first installations can be found on our first blogsite www.fieldwork.blogsome.com

The project has been fortunate to receive the generous support of the Ontario Arts Council since 2008.
