Reflections on Indigenous Awareness Week at McGill

by Lori Beavis, Artist-in-Residence, Dept. of Integrated Studies in Education

I attended the Opening Ceremony at Thomson House. Delbert Sampson and Jean Stevenson gave the welcome and elder blessing. Unfortunately the keynote speaker was unable to attend as he had gone fishing and was caught in the middle of the St Laurent River at the scheduled time. Two members, Nakha Bers and Emilie Monnett of the song and drumming group, Odaya were there to perform and close the opening luncheon.

Montreal's OBORO gallery presents Anne Ashton's Tiburón from September 12, 2015 until October 17. Anne Ashton currently teaches painting with the Faculty of Education.

The Tiburón installation "deals with the great white shark," reveals OBORO's promotion for the exhibit, "in danger of extinction due to human impact. The artist's intention is not to romanticize or demonize this animal, but rather to emphasize the uniqueness, as well as the primeval and mystifying beauty of this rare species..."

The award particularly celebrates the artistic medium of clay. Horlik's winning submission is entitled PROUNS(SLASH), and is a 300-pound ceramic reinterpretation of Japanese video game Katamari Damacy, also drawing inspiration from Horlik's experience with the Canadian reforestation industry.
