Summer Look Club at CUAG

Wednesday, 3 June 2015, 2:00 p.m.

 
Discover great art this summer with our Summer Look Club! Inspired by the book club format, the gallery’s educator Fiona Wright invites you to join her for weekly coffee and conversation sessions about artworks in our summer exhibition, Human Nature. Wide-ranging and thought-provoking, the exhibition features contemporary Ontario artists whose works look at the state of the natural world and our impact on it. We’ll explore mediums such as painting, sculpture, installation, and video, and discuss how artists reflect on the complex interconnections between nature, culture, history, and technology. Focused looking and open discussion will lead to new discoveries about artists and art-making, and help us to discover together the joy of looking at and loving contemporary art. 
 
The Summer Look Club takes place at the gallery on Wednesdays at 2 p.m., running from June 3rd to July 15th (no class on July 1st).
 
This FREE course is organized in partnership with the Old Ottawa South Community Centre.  Please register by visiting http://www.oldottawasouth.ca
