MAR 30 – APR 8, 2021: Kennedy Collins, Melissa Campbell + Q Silva, Sarah Graeme

Anna Leonowens Gallery Window Exhibitions 
1889 + 1891 Granville Street
1894 Hollis St. Halifax NS

The Anna Leonowens Gallery is featuring student exhibitions throughout the Winter 2021 semester in our historic street level windows. Not in Halifax? We will be sharing works from these exhibitions on social media.

Gallery 1
The Girl With No Mouth
Kennedy Collins, undergraduate exhibitor

The Girl With No Mouth is a feminist work the explores themes of identity and mental illness while simultaneously combining sculpture and photography. Collins presents herself in a mask crafted from the letters of her stalker, where she looks through the eyes of a man who forces his fantasy of the ideal woman.


Gallery 2
Just a Little Confused
Melissa Campbell and Q Silva, undergraduate exhibitors

In their exhibition of painting, cyanotype prints and fashion, Campbell and Silva aim to create the feeling of “being in a constant emergency but also not in an emergency all at the same time.” They will be showcasing a turbulent mix of works inspired by current events and “the current state of an artist’s mind.”


Gallery 3
Vessels for Tender Devotions
Sarah Graeme, undergraduate exhibitor

In her exhibition, Sarah Graeme weaves together cultivated plant materials grown and gathered in Mi’kma’ki, as well as SÁNEĆ and T’sou-ke territories with ceramic forms, to create vessels of interrelationship. This work contemplates the inherent story of materials: who they are, where they come from and how those stories intersect with those of the maker. Viewers are invited to contemplate their own stories by looking through the vessel windows and into the intentionally constructed space within.
