A painting by Richard Bedwash, a person kneels over steaming rocks in a sweat lodge. The work features bold black outlines and primary block colours.

You are invited! Join us Thursday, June 13 at 6:30 pm, for the launch of the Art Gallery of Guelph’s summer season featuring three exhibitions: Yours in Native Spirit: Richard Bedwash, Catherine Chan: Fractures and Fragments, and What Remains. All three exhibitions address ideas and issues that are exceptionally timely – from the work of Richard Bedwash, the Anishinaabe artist tied to murals that remain at risk within the aging structure of the abandoned Guelph Correctional Centre, to Catherine Chan’s engagement with questions of the Anthropocene, and the work in What Remains that draws attention to the humanitarian crisis playing out on the southern border of the United States.

Accessible parking and a limited number of free parking spots are available in the lot beside and behind the gallery with an entrance off Gordon Street, just north of College Avenue. Additional parking is available in the University of Guelph campus parking lot P23 with access from College Avenue and MacDonald Street.
