Art on the Wall - Winter 2022

Unmasking, Breathing, Moving Forward

The Kanata Centre for Worship and Global Song, at Martin Luther University College, hosts and evening of art, music and conversation starting at 7 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 13. 

The centre’s annual Art and Vespers gathering (online) will offer live jazz music and talks by artists featured in the exhibition Unmasking, Breathing, Moving Forward, said Debbie Lou Ludolph, director of the Kanata Centre. 

“This gathering will serve as the opening for the exhibition co-curated by Carol Pinnock and Beverly McNabb, two of our dedicated volunteers,” Ludolph said. 

Pinnock said the purpose of the exhibition, a project of the Kanata Centre’s Art on the Wall program, is to highlight the voices of racialized and Indigenous artists and their response to the existing pandemics. 

McNabb added, “It has been a delight to work with the artists to assemble this powerful exhibition.” 

The exhibition will be on display on Luther’s campus from Feb. 1 to April 22, 2022. Public access will be subject to pandemic safety protocols. Pease see below for viewing hours and pandemic safety protocols for visitors.
