Mon-Sun, September 1-August 23, 2015, | ARTIST IN RESIDENCE PROGRAM Kent Harrison Arts Council is a not-for-profit organization, nurturing and supporting local arts and culture in the region for over 40 years. The arts council operates the Ranger Station Art Gallery in Harrison Hot Springs, BC and is supported by the BC Arts Council.

The annual residency provides an unfurnished two-bedroom suite with adjoining studio space on the second floor of the Ranger Station Art Gallery. In exchange for this space the Artist in Residence will be expected to devote an average of ten hours per week to the operation of the Arts Council and the Ranger Station Art Gallery. The majority of this time will be spent working in the gallery on Saturdays, Sundays and holiday Mondays from 1-5pm. The Artist in Residence will also present an annual art exhibit of their work in June and organize two public outreach programs or workshops. Artist in residence is responsible for monthly utility costs of residence and studio. Please refer to the artist in residence job description for specific duties and responsibilities at
www.kentharrisonartscouncil.com

This residency is ideally suited to visual artists and writers, although all artists are encouraged to contact us about their interests. If an inspirational natural setting, public art gallery work experience and self-directed, independent studio practice is of interest to you.

Interstate 10, the southernmost transcontinental highway ranging from San Diego,
California, through several states including Texas and onward to the east in Jacksonville,
Florida. The basic concept of the connectivity of land, road, transportation and travel are,
indelibly, American themes. Although open to all 2–D art forms in abstract, non-representational
or realist imagery, submissions should reflect this landscape/land–based motif.

Fri-Sat, January 9-February 21, 2015, 12pm-5pm | REALITIES FOLLIES Realities Follies surveys the work of five Victoria based painters; Jeremy Herndl, Todd Lambeth, Rick Leong, Neil McClelland, and Jeroen Witvliet. Curators Lynda Gammon (UVic Visual Arts Department) and Wendy Welch (Vancouver Island School of Art) observe: “We live in an image-world. Selfies on Facebook, instant sharing on Instagram, and photo albums on Flickr, all demonstrate our intense desire to re-present our world. Through the practice of painting, the artists in this exhibition, each in their own way, are re-presenting and interrogating the meaning of representation, and in turn, questioning our ways of perceiving reality.”

Exhibition Opening: Friday, January 9, 2015 at 7:00pm

Voice ++ is Open Space’s festival that focuses on the exploration of the human voice and its intersection with sound and music. Voice++ 2015 will feature the work of Tomomi Adachi, Janice Jackson, and Erik Bünger.

Tomomi Adachi will host a workshop on the voice and body. The workshop will investigate collective performance with the voice and body movements and will work on finding connections of voice with visibility, tactility and acoustic of space and body. Participants are not required any musical skill, dancers and visual artists are welcome.

On Friday, Adachi will present a mix program with his own and historical sound poetry, internet-based performance and composition/improvisation with self-made electronics and voice. He extends possibilities of music and poetry with very intense, physical and conceptual way.

Saturday’s concert Echoes of Time is a Canadian program of contemporary vocal music written in the past 20 years. All of the music in this program is theatrical, powerful, and engaging. The music contains bel canto singing, extended vocal techniques, improvisation, ritualistic movement, and exemplifies the music which Janice Jackson has specialized in over the past 25 years. This concert will include a performance of Sandy Moore’s Echoes of Time Weeping, a mini-opera based on the Mexican myth of La Llorona.

On Sunday afternoon Open Space will host Erik Bünger’s performative lecture The Third Man: part of a series of works on the human voice in relationship to recording technology, music and language. The Third Man includes his childhood memories of discovering a music box to watching the Sound of Music however, it is in fact an exploration of the negative power of music. Displacing and recombining familiar material, Bünger challenges the separation between authentic and simulated experiences.

“The links [Bünger] makes between Kylie Minogue and zombies – between popular melodies and the Pied Piper of Hamelin – are not only novel but also witty in a subtle way.” – Thibaut de Rugter frieze-magazin.de
