Wintertide:Return of Light MacLaren Art Centre

A first again!  Wintertide: Return of Light is the first annual art projection project by the MacLaren Art Centre..

In collaboration with the City of Barrie and our incredible local arts community they will use windows to show projected art.

Very First Show!

This first show points us to our bi-annual time change as well as the growing optimism afforded by mass vaccinations and an end to this Pandemic!

Now that weather is warming, get ready for an evening walk along Collier and Mulcaster Streets with your family.

Once dusk has moved in viewing will be in the windows of the MacLaren Art Centre and the vacant storefront beside Jimmy Chews. 

Included in the Projection will be an endearing candlelight vigil for Roberta Place; photographs provided by Simcoe County Archives and Canadian Forces Base Borden, as well as art from the following artists:

And the Artists Are:

Angela Aujla of Barrie is a Professor of Sociology, an emerging artist specializing in mixed media, drawing and visual collage.

Using ink, oil pastels, paint and computer Angela creates a very special effect loved by children and adults alike.

Krystal Ball is a regional artist known as a globally based citizen living in both Toronto or Jamaica.

Her work is a very definite style of bold, rich and striking use of color.  There is such an appreciation of her cultural background found within her art.  Simply stunning!

David Andrec, formally of Hamilton has now made Barrie his home for work and play.  David has travelled extensively for his love of photographic art.  His showings represent expansive insights into different cultures through his lens!

Tarun Lak of Los Angeles is a very special artist within the art projection project.  Tarun is a filmmaker nominated for a Golden Globe and works in animation at Pixar Animation Studios.

Check Them Out!

Many of you will recognize his work; take a moment to find out more about Tarun before visiting the project.  Just reading a bit about him will start your creative thoughts in motion.

Many Thanks -

Wintertide has been made possible through the generous support of the Founding Partners; Thanks to the City of Barrie, Georgian BMW/MINI Georgian, the Sargeant Company, Canadian Forces Base Borden and Simcoe County Archives.

So gather the family, put your walking shoes on and head towards this unique collaboration downtown Barrie!
