THE WEIGHT OF PAPER
an installation by Liz Eakins
- Station on the Green
The Weight of Paper is both an experience and an art installation. Under the guidance of paper artist Liz Eakins, community members of all ages have contributed to this participatory art project. The Weight of Paper explores a conventional material in a contemporary installation. It examines the way we communicate and connect and contrasts the ephemeral nature of paper with the permanent effect of what is written upon it.
ARTISTS ON LOCATION
the work of artists and artisans on display
- throughout Creemore
From watercolours to oils, sculpture to photography, Artists on Location showcases the works of approximately 45 artists in businesses, studios, and homes throughout the village of Creemore.
Get the most from this arts weekend when you start with the group show at the Station on the Green. The show features work from each participating artist and a large map (and volunteers!) to help you find your way.
THE FACE OF CLIFF
a collection of photographs, poetry and artifacts by Paul Eprile
- Creemore’s Log Cabin, 165 Library St.
The Face of Cliff depicts the values and textures of a vibrant way of life, now past. Basic and slow-paced, Cliff Lindsay’s life was also rich in awareness, resilience, and sustainability. Three decades ago, Paul Eprile photographed Cliff and his house. These large images, combined with poems and artifacts, open a window into a lifestyle that is almost lost to us today. The Face of Cliff offers us a chance to explore how the past informs and enriches the present, especially during times of accelerating change.
POEMS FOR CLIFF
- a reading with Paul Eprile sponsored by The Creemore Echo and the Creemore Log Cabin
Saturday and Sunday . 11 am and 2 pm daily
Poems that pay respect to an almost vanished way of life. Written and read by artist, publisher and translator Paul Eprile as part of his exhibit, The Face of Cliff.
