‘In the Flow’ - New Paintings by Oxanna Adams and Dennis Gaumond

By Oxanna Adams

Guelph Arts Council member Oxanna Adams and Dennis Gaumond met in the mid-90s while volunteering at the local chapter of the Council of Canadians. They like to think that their art is informed by the same sense of caring and compassion for the planet that brought them together at meetings and demonstrations.

Meet Mallory Tolcher during Culture Days weekend - Guelph’s Artist in Residence

By Jen Rafter

Mallory Tolcher is the City of Guelph’s 2019 Artist in Residence. Tolcher’s project, called #GuelphMovesMe, promotes physical fitness on Guelph’s trails through an outdoor art exhibition.

The project kicked off by asking the community to submit photos of individuals getting physically active as inspiration for 12 hand-drawn portraits. The portraits will be installed at six points along the Silvercreek and Eramosa River trails at the beginning of September and changed out halfway through the project.

The project ends with an artist talk and trail walk at 1 p.m. on September 29 at McCrae House during Culture Days weekend.
