Guelph Emerging Artist Mentorship Project Summer Exhibition 2019

By Lauren Taylor

This summer, Guelph Arts Council and the School of Fine Art and Music at the University of Guelph are co-presenting the Summer 2019 round of the Guelph Emerging Artist Mentorship Project. Since 2017, the GEAMP has been pairing emerging artists, musicians, and cultural managers with established artists and arts professionals to collaborate creatively and gain experience in curation, social media, marketing and publicity, graphic design, and more. The final presentation of the project is Treading Loudly, a multi-media art exhibition at the Boarding House Gallery, fully curated by GEAMP participants. Treading Loudly runs until Wednesday, July 31, and included an opening reception on July 19 with a musical performance by singer-songwriter and Project participant Mikalyn Hay. It will also include a closing reception on Tuesday, July 30 from 7-9pm, which will feature a musical performance by Roscoe Fiction (Project participant Peter Spring).
