Grounded: Seeking Connections is a juried group exhibition that features artworks by eight artists based on Prince Edward Island: Will Baker, Doug Dumais, Maggie J. Whitten Henry, Monica Lacey, Sarah Saunders, LiliAnne Webster, Jane Whitten, and Damien Worth. The exhibition is an exploration of place, the natural world, and the artist’s role within it.
The exhibition was organised from an open call for submissions for recent artworks that are original, forward thinking, and incite conversation. The selected artworks are in a range of mediums, including photography, sculpture, textile, video, painting, and mixed media. Many of the artworks are introspective and personal reflections, often demonstrating a desire for deeper connection, an especially relevant subject in a time where many of us are distanced. The artworks further explore themes related to the natural world and ecological concerns, material juxtapositions, and revisiting and recording traces from the past.
The exhibition is a partnership between this town is small and Eptek Art & Culture Centre and is made possible with the support of the PEI Culture Action Plan through Innovation PEI.
