Thank you, Dr. Zabudsky, and good evening everyone. This truly is an honour to be asked to speak to you tonight. Look at all these happy faces. Well you have done it, you have delivered unto the world the best artistic talent of 2014. You must be exhausted: the late nights, the stress, the demands, the balance of work and school. I am talking to you friends and families, it is a lot of work getting these people through school and you have done it. Graduates, give your friends and families a hand for their endurance.

Photography Alumna Emily Cooper is showing her work as part of an exhibit entitled ‘Dreamers” ‘Dreamers’ encompasses a collection of artworks tailored to the styles of both the twentieth-century art movement Surrealism, as well as dream like Figurative paintings. The collection aims to embody the contradictory conditions of dreams and reality. It is an exhibition with strong references to the real world, but with perspective and concepts applied uniquely by each artist, changing the reality into a dream; ultimately forcing reactions unique to each individual viewer. The exhibit runs from March 18th to March 30th at Arta Gallery, 14 Distillery Lane, M5A 3C4, Distillery District.

A recent alumnus of Sheridan’s Crafts and Design – Ceramics program, Zimra Beiner, has come out on top of this year’s Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition (TOAE), earning the “best of exhibition” title. The inspiration for his award-winning piece came from “obscure sources such as a 9000 year old Pestle from Papua New Guinea, to the most generic furniture found at every Walmart in North America.” He expanded to explain that his interests in the material arts lies in “the overlap between situations which occur in the studio (my reality), the home (everyone’s reality) and the gallery (the reality of art), and I use my own language of line, volume, and composition to make sense of these places and things for which I have both great admiration and skepticism.” I asked Zimra about his practice, and he said that he prefers simple, lo-tech methods – “primarily basic coil and pinch techniques”… Read More
