    How to Spot a Wolf is a community video project produced and directed by The Elder Financial Abuse Dialogue Group (North Shore Neighbouhood House), and Lois Klassen (11 MAA). The artists and participants worked together to create a video that would invite open discussions and awareness of financial abuse issues which are faced by many Canadian elders. The impact of the video-making process was also featured in Klassen's work, Word Finding, which was seen in the recent Degree Exhibition at the Charles H. Scott Gallery. This community video project constitutes part of Klassen's practice-based research project on dialogical art projects for her Master’s thesis.

    Eli Bornowsky (05) holds his third solo exhibition at Blanket Gallery. Over the last year, Eli has departed from his iconic and austere color paintings to explore new structures and a wide range of motifs.

    For this exhibition, he continues his new trajectory of oil painting diptychs and includes a group of works entitled Reading. Originally commissioned by Walrus magazine (June, 2011) Reading has grown into a small body of intimate gouache painting and balsa wood constructions.

    Sessional faculty member Holly Wards interdisciplinary practice is centered on ideas surrounding social progress and political power, and serves to examine the role of art within this. In Persistence of Vision, Holly investigates symbolic strategies of resistance and the use of utopian discourse as a starting point for revolution. The exhibition creates a linkage between contemporary spaces of protest and historical representations of the utopian city square.

    Featuring new sculptural and print work, the exhibition is an extension of her ongoing interest in social engagement and the utopian imaginary.
