The 2011 edition of the Scotiabank Contact Photography Festival is about to begin, and there’s a lot of art to see and events to participate in here on Ossington.
The festival runs the entire month of May with the theme “Figure & Ground” and features traditional exhibits in galleries and restaurants, and also a number of public installations and open exhibits.
The full calendar is available online, and there’s even a mobile app. We, of course, want to highlight some exhibits and events in and around Ossington Village.
On Sunday, May 1 between 6 and 9PM, head over to The Painted Lady for the opening of owner Nikki Potter’s exhibit, States of Undress: The Big Easy. The walls will be filled with her work for the entirety of May.
At the same time, 6-9PM Sunday May 1, Brockton General will host an opening for Ian Brewster‘s Cover of Night.
From 6-9PM this Thursday night, Angell Gallery launches two Contact exhibits, including Long Divisions by Geoffrey Pugen.
Also that night from 7-11PM at Levack Block is the opening for Pigeons and Powerlines by Mark Binks.
If you can’t make it out for the openings, these exhibits should be up all of May. Also, check out the Contact displays at Alison Milne Gallery.
There will be lots to see and experience this May with the Scotiabank Photography Festival. For more recommendations in other parts of the city, try these sites. It’s a city-wide event with a lot of variety, so go explore yourself!
