Browning, Kathy

Growing up in Thunder Bay, Kathy’s relationship to landscape has inspired her to create photographically for over forty years. She learns about land and water and her relationship to them through the work that she creates. In the past this understanding has inspired her to create sculpture, painting, drawing, printmaking, musical instruments, performance art, and particularly digital photography. Her latest exhibition entitled Spirit Animals was shown at the Stopciati Gallery, Sudbury wherein she superimposed images of animals on rocks, water, and sky photographs in Northern Ontario. Spirit Animals is a series of digitally manipulated images that encourages the audience to view nature as interconnected and unified. These photographs exemplify the spirits inherent in animals. We are all a part of this landscape and these photographs question the animals continued existence in this changing landscape. Some of her other exhibitions and photographic series have been Spirit of the North, Superior Power, Images on Rocks and Images on Icebergs. Kathy’s photographic series are limited edition archival quality giclee prints.

Kathy Browning is an Artist and an Art Educator. She has a Ph. D. and B. Ed. from University of Toronto, an M. F. A. from York University, and a B. F. A. Honours from the University of Manitoba. Kathy has taught Visual Arts and Technology at the elementary, secondary and university levels and currently teaches Visual Arts in the School of Education, Laurentian University.

Kathy’s research interests include digital photography, digital applications in elementary and secondary visual arts education, media arts, aesthetics, and video. Kathy has completed 14 DVD’s for Videos of Visual Artists in Greater Sudbury.

The videos will be made available on-line through streaming and links. The purpose is to add to the knowledge base of artists in Canada, particularly more remote areas like Northern Ontario, through videos and on-line sites for information access.

Myth and Mirrors Community Arts

Contact Name: Blaire Flynn

“Through the process of multi disciplinary artistic practices and public art interventions, Myths and Mirrors collaborates with community to weave art and story into the landscape and practices of our daily lives.  We actively seek unexpected connections, openings, opportunities and possibilities of collectively being in the world.  We push boundaries and create openings for public participation in social transformation.  Everyone is welcome to imagine and create community with us.”

We work to blur the lines between artist and audience and push boundaries around places of artistic creation and experience. We use methods of artistic subversion to question who is artist, who is audience, where and when art is made and experienced. As community and environmental connections become increasingly electronic and virtual, Myths and Mirrors seeks ways to reconnect. We believe it is necessary to find opportunities for first hand connections. By sharing our stories in meaningful and tangible ways we humanize and learn to be a community.

While M&M continues to create collaborative visual art such as murals, we are also directing our energies toward performance, puppetry and circus arts.

Williams, Terry

I describe myself as a “lens-based” artist, mostly because I can’t draw, paint, or sculpt. Photography lets me capture ideas visually, and helps me try to translate large-scale social narratives into intimate, personal encounters. I have a strong interest in analog photography (plus most other forms of analog practice.) I’m interested in “signal based realizations”…which for me has mostly been about analog/terrestrial radio waves. I’m also fascinated by airline disasters and most things related to the Cold War.

My training began in 1994 with Susan McEachern at NSCAD. After that I pursued a self-directed practice for 15 years, before returning to school at Ryerson University and receiving my BFA in Photography in 2014. Along the way I also took advanced professional courses with Carson Jones, Craig Samuels, and Ray Steinke at the Canadian Photographic Centre.

I have also been active as a producer and project manager in the performing and visual arts since 1994. My experience includes grant writing, marketing, fundraising, publicity, capital projects, public engagement, event ideation and production, tour management, concert management, documentation, and reporting. I’ve been fortunate to have worked with several of the leading creators of our time, as well as many of the most active arts organizations in Canada. I also work with individual artists to help them with marketing, social media, and career management.
