Colour with a U Too

The J. Franklin Wright Gallery presents

Colour with a U Too

“In Canada, we spell colour with a “u”. We also spell labour, favourite, honour, and neighbour with a “u”. That “u” could stand for unique, unforgettable, universal, unity, understanding, utopia. It could include the unusual, unexpected, unbound, unabashed, unaccounted, uncanny. We care about the “u”; it makes us unique. We care about the “you”; it brings us together. What do the Canadian values of diversity and inclusion mean to you? How does your labour in your favourite medium honour your neighbourhood, your community? How do you colour yourself in to our Canadian culture?”

The nine artists in this travelling exhibition have reflected on the theme of diversity and inclusion to give “colourful” representations of our Canadian cultural identity. Each offers an individual perspective on how we as Canadians see ourselves in our social, historical and physical landscape.

The public are invited to attend the opening, December 3 at 6:30 p.m.
