Who do you think found the “Golden Egg”? (The “Golden Goose” this year was unavailable due to scheduling conflicts, but perhaps next year she’ll make an appearance…)

Happy Hunting!

Legion 2011 – Show & Sale

April 19, 2011 § 1 Comment

Another semester, another Show & Sale! Another Show & Sale, another post from us here at HSTA about how amazing our Show & Sale was…seriously. Once again, we were blown away by the professionalism, the quality and breadth of work, proud of the amount of participation from every in-season certificate and VCAD, and incredibly pleased with the response from the community. To make a bad pun, they came in legions. We keep saying it, but it only makes it more true….each time, our Show & Sale gets bigger : more work, more students, more visitors, more sales. Still only in its infancy, the bi-annual Show & Sale has proven itself to be a “don’t miss” event and here at HSTA we congratulate all of  our students who participated and thank the legions from the Haliburton Community and beyond who came out in support of the emerging arts and our Campus.

Alumni Spotlight: Deborah Murphy

HSTA- VCAD and Glassblowing alumni, Deb Murphy, has recently been announced as an artist-in-residence at the newly resurrected Art in the Park at Pukaskwa National Park. Deborah will be in residence Friday, June 3 – Wednesday, June 8, 2011.

Approaching 60 and obsessing with the transience of life, Deborah resurrects life’s rejects in the materials she uses – from the fungi in her Gooderham, ON yard to the electrical wiring from her husband’s work to the windows from her godparents’ home.  “My art escapes me with the force of a robust fart that refuses to be contained; accompanied by laughter and protests of surprise,” she says.  Pukaskwa can’t wait to spend some time laughing with Deborah this spring! While in residence, Deborah will be offering workshops (Details to TBA.)

The resurrection all started with a local artist prompting, begging, nagging staff at the Park to bring back Pukaskwa’s Art in the Park program. They listened, and there’s no better year for it – this year marks 100 years for the world’s FIRST national parks system. Parks Canada is celebrating its 100th, and HSTA is proud that Deb is a part of it.

Pukaskwa located at the end of Highway 627, 15km south of the TransCanada Highway 17. The closest communities are Pic River First Nation and Heron Bay, also on Highway 627, and Marathon,a 25 minute drive west of the park. It is a 4.5 hour drive northwest of Sault Ste. Marie, ON and a 3.5 hour drive east of Thunder Bay.

Pukaskwa is a spectacular wilderness park located on the most rugged and wild section of the Lake Superior coast. Tucked into this shoreline is the 67-site Hattie Cove Campground. Known for its quiet and intimate feel, Hattie Cove is the sort of hidden gem the pulls visitors back year after year. But , Lake Superior makes its own weather. Even in the summer months, visitors should expect cool temperatures. Daytime highs rarely go higher than 25°C and evenings can be chilly around the fire. On the bright side, the days there are long!

Congrats again Deb!

Visual and Creative Arts Diploma Class Exhibition
March 9 to March 24, 2011

When you attend this show, you are along for the ride on a journey that has just begun for these artists. “THIS” provides some insight into the progressive nature of student work, that is at turns playful, pensive and sometimes pretty darned hard to get a handle on, and that’s ok! It is through experiments, concept development and creative risk taking that students develop their artistic voice. By intention, no finished work is shown. This is the third year in a row the Rails End has presented a peek at the inner world of VCAD.

Meet the Artists at a Reception Wednesday March 9 from 4:30 – 6 pm.
