This exhibition makes us understand the power of the mind and its projection on our societal roles in a simple statement “strong body, strong mind’.  The conceptual works stand beyond our preconceptions about strengthening our bodies to achieve a look.  Strengthening our bodies becomes more of a process of understanding the control of our thoughts and behaviour in society.  It is not a criticism of people who avoid exercising. Instead, it is motivation to realise that an active lifestyle and routine help us understand that we are part of society.  One’s physical, mental and spiritual strengthening contributes to our health as individuals and collectively as a society.

Curated by Virginia Eichhorn in collaboration with Rob Waldeck.

Meet us at the James Bay Community Market
Saturdays – May 7th through Sept. 24th
 
 
The James Bay Market is a vibrant community farmers market located at the corner of Menzies and Superior Street in the heart of James Bay. You will still find yourself surrounded by a bounty of fresh local produce and farm goods, beautiful and unique artisan crafts and fresh ready-to-eat foods.
 You will love the fine handcrafted wood items, whimsical home décor and naturally crafted body products. We also have top-quality traditional baked goods, speciality sauces and seasonings and dried soup mixes. Hungry? You will find prepared food you can eat right on site in our picnic area. We also have a vast array of farm-fresh products from farm-fresh meats to seasonal veggies and fruits.
 Along with a unique community shopping experience, live local music by some of the area's most talented musicians will entertain you throughout the day. There is also plenty of room to sit and relax or have a bite to eat, while you take in the ambience of the market.
 Visit us at the corner of Menzies and Superior every Saturday rain or shine from 9am – 3pm. The market runs from May 7th until the 24th of September. Free parking on Superior and we have a limited amount of 1-hour parking spaces in the adjacent lot, inquire at information tent.

    

The Robert Bateman: Heart & Home exhibit illuminates the inspirations, connections and soul of an artist steeped in nature. The collection is comprised of extraordinary artwork and pieces, some never-before-seen and meant for an audience of one. It captures the intimate occasions of birthdays, holidays, and the love that Robert Bateman shares with his close family and friends. Just like capturing the fleeting moments of light in the natural world, Robert savours the moments of creating gifts to express his care. 
Step into Robert’s studio and be immersed in the artist’s space. In the next room, you’ll enter a Bateman Christmas in the 90s with a 54” sculpted Nutcracker with a mischievous grin standing beside a handcrafted Christmas crèche. The journey continues with paintings, drawings, and furniture pieces gifted to loved ones. 
The gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10:00 to 4:00 PM. Late night admission by donation every third Thursday of the month from 4:00 to 7:00 PM. 
Tickets at door only: Children (0-4) $0, Youth (5-16) $6, Seniors/Students $8.50, Adults $10.

    

Out of Place delves into the relationships between the ground beneath our feet and the roofs over our heads. Through sculpture, photography and stop-motion projection, artist Connie Michele Morey explores ecological displacement (a colonial separation from the earth as home) and its impact on labour and housing dislocation. The exhibition grows out of tensions embodied in the artist’s mixed settler and Indigenous identity, alongside her personal experiences with housing insecurity. Emerging from travel to over fifty former village and industry sites on the east and west coasts of Canada, Out of Place questions what it means to be at home with the body, community, and earth.

The two-artist exhibit “MurMur” intends to make visible the intangible, the physical representation of our heartbeats, breath and even the presence of our souls on our loved ones.
