Be inspired this month as we host a series of art exhibits and demonstrations including sound, photography, history, acrylics, and oils.
We’ve got three new exhibits at Central Library in June, and we’re a partner in two amazing local festivals!
Don’t miss out on:
OPEN EARS FESTIVAL
As part of the Open Ears Festival, Central Library is hosting a special sound installation in the Theatre Lobby on the lower level.
Octave by Tristan Perich
Twelve sound panels that project 300 different frequencies; each distributed at equal distances in ascending order over the length of the display. Walking back and forth along the display, listeners get varying perspectives on the different sounds and tones.
Exhibit runs until June 25.
MAKE IT KITCHENER
As part of Make It Kitchener, an initiative of the City of Kitchener, see the exhibit in the Reading Lounge on the main level.
Dedicated to the makers, hackers, writers, coders, builders, and creators in this city, from 1854 right up to today, the exhibit combines historical and contemporary photos with objects found by Bernie Rohde and curated by Eric Rumble. Be sure to pick up a Make it Kitchener magazine while you’re here.
GRAND RIVER IMAGING PHOTOGRAPHY SOCIETY (GRIPS)
In the Art Gallery at Central Library, on the lower level.
See this exhibit mounted by members of GRIPS, a club for photographers of all skill levels that strives to increase the enjoyment of photography through workshops, outings, and friendly competition. Exhibit runs until June 30.
Everyone is welcome to attend the Opening Reception on Wednesday, June 8 at 6:30 pm.
