    How to Spot a Wolf is a community video project produced and directed by The Elder Financial Abuse Dialogue Group (North Shore Neighbouhood House), and Lois Klassen (11 MAA). The artists and participants worked together to create a video that would invite open discussions and awareness of financial abuse issues which are faced by many Canadian elders. The impact of the video-making process was also featured in Klassen's work, Word Finding, which was seen in the recent Degree Exhibition at the Charles H. Scott Gallery. This community video project constitutes part of Klassen's practice-based research project on dialogical art projects for her Master’s thesis.

    Eli Bornowsky (05) holds his third solo exhibition at Blanket Gallery. Over the last year, Eli has departed from his iconic and austere color paintings to explore new structures and a wide range of motifs.

    For this exhibition, he continues his new trajectory of oil painting diptychs and includes a group of works entitled Reading. Originally commissioned by Walrus magazine (June, 2011) Reading has grown into a small body of intimate gouache painting and balsa wood constructions.

    The new work of Karin Bubaš ('98) is centered around the use of coloured smoke.  Bubaš has captured outdoor settings, literally painting on landscapes of snow and fog with coloured smoke and documenting the results. The outcome is a minimalist landscape with the decoration of colour, evocative of the dreamy hues used in Gerhard Richter’s seascape painting series.
