IS THIS REAL LIFE | EST-CE LA VRAIE VIE

19 May 2022 – 26 June 2022

Is this real life | Est-ce la vraie vie is a contemporary installation of 25 artworks by 26 artists looking back on two years of unsettling times, including works by Alexandra Berens, Jon Butler, Linda Finn, Sue Gamble, Ashley Guenette, Madison Kotyluk, Martin Kotyluk, Maven Kotyluk, Sue Lampinen, Maria Legault, Suzanne McCrae, Andrew McPhail, Jess McShane, Neli Nenkova, Rob O’Flanagan, Elyse Portal, Emilio Portal, Joey Solomon, Heather Topp, Isak Vaillancourt, Rita Vanderhooft, Sharon VanStarkenburg, Johanna Westby, Cheryl Wilson Smith, Laura Woermke, and Karen Ylitalo.

Each art work was selected on its individual merit. Gathered together in the exhibition installation, the art works offer meditations by artists on artmaking during pandemic, mortality, social distancing, sheltering at home, the companionship of pets during solitude, the omnipresence of social media, real opportunities for social change and reconciliation, environmental impact, and essential connections to nature and the outdoors.

The Gallery was honoured to have three invited curators – Anik Glaude (Toronto), Deanna Nebenionquit (Sudbury), and Aidan Ware (Owen Sound) – who juried from 90 submissions from visual artists across Greater Sudbury and around the province. Sincerest thanks to our jurors – and to all the artists who submitted in the online process.
