Will Gill will be giving an artist talk about his experiences during a recent residency, north of the Arctic Circle.
“It was called The Arctic Circle and took place in Svalbard Norway, waaaay north of the arctic circle, just 1200km from the North pole,” says Gill. “It happened aboard a tall ship for two weeks with 27 other artists. I will talk about the things I saw, the experiences I had, and the work I made there.”

Warm up the photocopier! It’s Zineophilia 4. The annual event invites local artists and writers to trade, sell, or barter their small self-published bookworks or zines.
“The idea is for people to create a brand new zine, make 15 or so copies, and then trade them with others at the event,” says co-coordinator Laura Temple. “The purpose is to give people a deadline to make the zine, and give them an easy way to distribute it.”
“Whether people make a zine or not, it is worth coming to check it out!,” says Laura. “There is usually lots of variety, including zines of short stories, photos, personal journal, poetry, philosophy, and drawings. Plus, there will be cookies.”

Closing out the month, it’s an open workshop for all ages to create art, all day long.
“It’s an open day to make art in various mediums and collaborate,” says Pepa Chan. “We will be installing the works we create outdoors, around the gallery. And it’s open to anyone, young, old, artists and non-artists! I am hoping to work mostly with found objects and also drawings and collage. People are welcome to bring found objects and supplies too!”
At 4:00 pm, Pepa and participants will create an “art trail” across downtown, from Water Street to Harbour Drive.
