Fieldwork opened its gates to 4 new installations, 13 wonderful bird boxes, a science fair, and many many visitors on the beautiful breezy afternoon of May 9, 2015.  What a great turnout.  We were all charmed by the students from our local independent schooll - Brooke Valley School - who painted and installed bird boxes and also presented their science fair projects - on birds - to visitors that afternoon at Fieldwork. 

We were pleased to also introduce our 4 new art installations which delighted and intrigued visitors:

Annette Hegel's Two Guiding Principles, Franc van Oort's Eye Box (a rotating camera obscura you can enter), Christine Nobel/Brian Barth's 191 Meters,  and Kimberly Edgar's Bird Memories.  More information and photos on each of these is or will soon be posted on this blog, so keep scrolling down the page and have a good read!

More photos of this year's installations (and other year's) can be found in the gallery menu to the right.  There are also many more on our Facebook Page which we encourage you to check out and 'Like'.

Many thanks are due in pulling together this year's exhibition. First of all a big shout out to the artists who have put great amounts of sweat equity, dedication, and passion into their wonderful work. Second, a bit thank you to the other collective members - Chris Osler and Sheila Macdonald who's councel and assistance is enormously appreciated. And also big gratitude to Cam Gray for being so generous with his time and expertise.  Coral Nault, principle at the Brooke Valley School, thank you for your creative ideas and for organizing the kids and their projects. Finally, we could not do this without the financial assistance of the Ontario Arts Council. Thank you OAC for your support once again this year.

Fieldwork Opening and Hootenanny a Big Hoot!

In September 2012 we celebrated the opening of the new Autumn installations at fieldwork  and our 5th anniversary with a fun, well-attended opening followed by a Hootenanny/barnparty fundraiser across the road in Susie's barn.  The fruits of our labours (artists, collective, and friends and supporters) were much, much appreciated - the shelter was up, the outhouse operational, the sheep fence around the parking area beautiful and functional, the installations all wonderful, and the bands were totally FUN!  The kids kicked off the dancing and we all joined the galavanting until the wee hours.  Thanks to everyone who volunteered, to everyone who came out, and to the bands The Good Right Arm Stringband and The King of the Swingers that made it such a fun night.  We hope to do host another fun event in September 2013.
