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. She created these videotaped interviews in partnership with the Director of the Laurentian University Film Studio, Hoi Cheu. These videos are needed to support the implementation of the new Ontario Ministry of Education: The Arts guidelines and include Aboriginal, Métis, Francophone, and Anglophone artists. 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.

Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann Sudbury Irish Arts Association Inc.

Contact Name: Crystal McCollom, Chair

CCE SIAAI concerns itself with the development of an environment conducive to: promoting traditional Irish music and arts in all forms; promoting, in particular, the playing of the harp and uilleann pipes locally; promoting Irish traditional dancing and singing with the traditional music; fostering and promoting the use of the Irish language; creating a closer bond among all lovers of Irish music and culture.

Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann Sudbury Irish Arts Association Inc. (a non-profit, charitable organization) was originally formed on March 17, 1996 under the name Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann Sudbury Branch.  Our finances are reviewed and we carry on a number of fundrasing activities during the year, including membership fees, events and ticket sales.  We have a Board of Directors and a Constitution and Bi-Laws (March 2009).  Since the begining, we have produced 14 Irish Celtic fairs (attendance from 600 – 1200), and ran a variety of weekly programs, large community shows (e.g. Echoes of Erin) and preformed in countless venues.  At the last Echos of Erin Irish show hosted in the community, there were 700-800 attendees and 45 volunteer participants.  We also train local adult singers, dancers and speakers of Irish, and also children to dance, sing, speak Irish, Irish crafts, do plays, and play fiddles and tin whistles.  Our programs are provided on a weekly basis to children, youth and adults.  We also run a week long Irish Summer school which is attended by (average) 10 – 30 children.  Our activities in public are usually directed towards all ages including seniors of any ethnicity.  We regularly perform for the residents of Long-Term Care facilities.  More recently we have organized a number of ceili dances (80 – 100 attendance).  Our dancers and Irish speakers attend events and competitions across the province.  We have now been funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation to provide set dancing (similar to square dancing) lessons in the community.  This is all been possible because of a core group od dedicated community volunteers.

The objectives/activities for which the corporation is incorporated are:

-To educate and increase the public’s understanding and appreciation of the arts by providing performances of an artistic nature in public places, senior citizens homes, churches, community centres and educational institutions and by providing seminars on topics relating to such performances.

-To provide instructional seminars on topics related to the performing and visual arts.

-To produce performing arts festivals for the purposes of educating and advancing the public’s understanding and appreciating of Irish culture.

Myth and Mirrors Community Arts

Contact Name: Blaire Flynn

Artistic Vision

“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.”

Art in Action

Playfully and actively, we dream and create together, in order to infuse art into the everyday. In this way, we work toward social change and all people identifying as creative beings who take part in creatively evolving their communities.

There is more to the story……

Stories are transformative. They offer multiple perspectives and promote flexibility of thinking. They form the realities they describe. People and communities are created and recreated through stories. They, and the worlds they live in, are imagined into being, renewed again and again through the sharing of stories, both real and not yet real.

Colouring outside the lines…..

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.
