Readings: New work from 2017 Anvil Centre Artists in Residence
February 25 3pm-5pm
4th floor landing, Anvil Centre
Free and open to the public
Join us for this event in conjunction with the AiR exhibition at the Community Art Space presenting art and writing by AiR’s Chelsea Comeau, Lois Klassen and Elisa Yon. The afternoon will feature readings by participants of Reading the Migration Library*, a project initiated by Lois Klassen during the June 2017 Artist in Residence at Anvil Centre. Dwellings, an installation by Elisa Yon (May 2017 Artist in Residence) of the chapbooks produced in Reading the Migration Library, will be set up to facilitate an exchange and a one-time give-away of the chapbooks’ first edition. Finally, the event will conclude with a reading by featured poet, and April 2017 Artist in Residence, Chelsea Comeau.
*Reading the Migration Library readers: Frederick Cummings, Alan Hill, Christine Leviczky Riek, Franci Louann, Graham McGarva, and Natasha Sanders-Kay
While at the Anvil Centre, also take a look at AiR Works, an exhibition of art by artists involved in the 2017 inaugural Anvil Centre Artist in Residence program in the Community Art Space on the 3rd floor.
