This winter, five artists, working in a diverse range of media, from across Canada, joined the island community at Artscape Gibraltar Point to create new, participatory and, engaging artworks inspired by the the unique built, sonic, socio-cultural and environmental landscapes of the Toronto Islands, as part of the Third Annual Winter Island Artist Project Residency Series.

We invite you to experience for the first time, relive the memories of, and celebrate with all of us, what was an incredible four months of winter programming at Gibraltar point at the easily accessible, no ferry required, Artscape Youngplace.

Artscape Award Recipient Solo Exhibition: Katrina Jurjans, “for a moment it all comes together (and you’re the only one)”

Katrina Jurjans

for a moment it all comes together (and you’re the only one)

November 13, 2017 – November 24, 2017

Hours: Monday-Sunday 8am-9pm, 3rd Floor Hallway Gallery

Opening Reception: Thursday November 16, 2017 | 6-9pm 

Katrina Jurjans was awarded the fourth annual Artscape Award at the 2017 Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition.The award includes a residency at Artscape Gibraltar Point and exhibition at Artscape Youngplace.

Katrina’s paintings rely on the visual language of colour, pattern, layering and spatial tension to explore intimate relationships and ideas of loss, memory, love, grief, instability and transition. Formed by blurring these concepts, her work breaks free from a fixed meaning, instead becoming a layered solidification of thoughts and feelings.

Opening reception – Soft: transformative queer love and care

Opening Reception: Thursday November 2, 2017 6pm-9pm 

Exhibition Dates: November 2, 2017 – November 24, 2017

Hours: Monday-Sunday 8am-9pm

The Centre for Emerging Artists & Designers at OCAD U congratulates Morgan Sears-Williams on the creation of this new photo documentary series and installation as the recipient of the 2017 Artscape Youngplace Career Launcher prize.

SOFT: transformative queer love and care explores the different manifestations of love and care and the intersections with politicized bodies, protest and reclamation of space. Where are the unexpected spaces where love and care manifest? What spaces are seen as more ‘legitimate’ than others? How can we challenge the idea of legitimacy of love and care within an intersectional queer lens?

As part of this Career Launcher, Madison Leeson, a graduate of OCAD U’s Curatorial and Criticism Practice program was commissioned to conduct an interview with the artist as well as a small essay to accompany the solo exhibition.

The artist would like to acknowledge the Mississaugas of New Credit, the Haudenosaunee and the Huron-Wendat, the original keepers of this land, for hosting us during the reception and for the duration of the show. We are very grateful to have the opportunity to live and work on this land.
