The Grimsby Public Art Gallery proudly presents its 4th season of the Art House Café Lecture Series!
This year, we proudly present Alisa Cunnington as our Keynote Speaker with her talk, 40 Yarns.
Hosted in the Grimsby Public Library’s Periodical Reading Room, the Art House Café Lecture Series is free to the public, and a café reception will follow each talk.
The Art House Café Lecture Series is dedicated to the memory of Pat and Edith Brown, two dedicated members of the arts community in Grimsby and long-time supporters of the Grimsby Public Art Gallery. The series is run in partnership with the Grimsby Public Library.
About Alisa Cunnington:
Alisa Cunnington is a mixed media artist working with found
objects, assemblage, fabric/quilting, drawing, installation,
bookbinding, and book arts. She has participated in and
curated past exhibitions in Niagara Region and southern
Ontario including Rodman Hall Arts Centre, Grimsby Public
Art Gallery, NAC, Hamilton Artist’s Inc, Visual Arts Centre
of Clarington, and the Durham Art Gallery. She is a regular
contributor to the annual Wayzgoose Anthology published
by the Grimsby Public Art Gallery and an active member
of the arts community in the Niagara Region. After a hiatus
from art production to pursue other academic interests, she
has renewed her practice in an effort to further investigate
relationships, intersections and interstices between memory,
history, cartography, archaeology and story/myth.
Fascinated by the untold story obscured by the process of
representation and the separate subjectivities of viewer and
collector/creator, her work is most often a collection that focuses
on connections between objects, spaces, stories and surfaces.
She currently works full time at Brock University as an Academic
Adviser and as a part time instructor for a variety of departments.
