Opening of Fieldwork's Summer Installations


fieldwork is holding the opening of its Summer Art Installations this Sunday, May 15th between 2-4 pm.  

Participating artists are Steven White (Owen Sound), Jennifer Ryder-Jones (Almonte), Michael Alstad (Toronto), and the Bakerygroup (Marcin Padlewski and Anissa Szeto-Padlewski (Clayton)).  (Click on their names to view their websites). 

The installations, each a unique visual response to the nature of the site itself, result also from each artist’s specific interests and methods of working.  Steven White’s work Piano Pendulum invites participation from the public (and nature) and highlights his interest in ‘accidental’ music, nature and technology.  Jennifer Ryder-Jones’ Scrag-ends/Scarecrows contemplate the notion of ‘waste’, renewal and decay.  Michael Alstad’s Coyote Illumination brings some drama and light to the field and investigates the relationship/tension between humans, the wild, and nature.  Finally, the Bakerygroup’s Inside/Out invites us to ponder our perception of art and how it is influenced by the environment that ‘frames’ the art-viewing experience.

Bring your family and friends out this Sunday (May 15, 2-4 pm) for a walk around the field to explore this new work and meet the artists.  All are welcome.  Light refreshments will be available. The Summer Installations will remain in the field until the end of August.
