Meet us at the Owens next Friday for a BBQ to celebrate the start of the fall term and the current exhibition Endless Return.
We’ll be cooking up hamburgers, hotdogs, and vegetarian burgers. Snacks, sodas, and gluten-free buns will be available. If it rains, we will have sandwiches in the Lobby of the Owens. All are welcome!
On view 23 June – 8 October 2023
Curators: Emily Falvey and Jane Tisdale
Inspired by the lifecycles of plants, this exhibition explores themes of impermanence, regeneration, and resilience. It presents the work of artists Kaeli Cook and Roger J. Smith in conversation with a selection of work from the Owens’ permanent collection, including early botany studies by students from the Mount Allison Ladies’ College and artists such as Lizzie McLeod, Amy McLeod, and Violet A. Gillett. It also features Diaspora Series (2015), a recently acquired work by Innu/English artist Melissa Tremblett, in which she returns to her roots in Sheshatshiu, Labrador.
