Grenfell's 40th birthday: Volunteer planning committee
Grenfell Alumni Affairs and Development is establishing a volunteer planning committee this fall to begin planning Grenfell’s 40th anniversary celebrations in September 2015. We are looking for Grenfell graduates and former students, as well as faculty and staff, who may be interested in serving on the committee. For more information contact Patricia Walsh, Grenfell Alumni Affairs and Development, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 709-637-7329.
Today, Thursday, 4:30-6 p.m., there will be an reception for the artists represented in the summer exhibitions at Grenfell's art gallery. Refreshments will be served and all are welcome. Following Memories features the colourful hooked rugs of Sarah Feltham and the whimsical sculpture of Nicole Russell. The exhibition is an exciting mix of traditional and non-traditional imagery which explores the concepts of home and place. Both Russell and Feltham graduated from the visual arts program at Grenfell in 1998 and continued on to receive education degrees from Memorial University of Newfoundland in 1999. Since graduating the artists have exhibited their work in group and solo exhibitions. Feltham is the recipient of a Newfoundland and Labrador Arts Council project grant and her work is in such public collections as the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador and the Grand Falls/Windsor Arts and Culture Centre Collection. Russell was a winner in the 2008 Arts and Letters Senior Division Awards and her work has been collected by the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador. And continuing this summer is Metaphorical Figuration, work by Corner Brook Regional High visual arts students. In March this year the two upper level visual arts classes of Corner Brook Regional High visited Grenfell Campus Art Gallery to view Don Foulds’ solo exhibition and then worked in Grenfell Campus sculpture studio with the artist on a number of sculpture projects including cast plaster and glazed tiles. Metaphorical Figuration (which takes its title from Foulds’ exhibition) is the culmination of these projects. As well, continuing in the art gallery's media room is the film L’Nug Agnutmagan (The Native’s Story), a film which captures the spirit and history of the Flat Bay Mi’Kmaq. The film was directed by Contessa LaSaga and Jacqueline White Snook.
