Jean Eng’s painting “Bonsai Minute” is included in “Animalia” an exhibition of animals in the Archives of Ontario. The show currently runs indefinitely— at least until 2021. The Archives of Ontario’s newest exhibit explores our changing relationships with other animals and how these species have left their mark on Ontario’s history.
We received the following call for entry from Les Filles électriques in Montreal:
Interdisciplinary company Les Filles électriques has launched its call for projects for Phénomena Festival 2019. Phénomena takes place in Montreal and offers a platform and laboratory to emerging or established artists who work with the unclassifiable, unconventional, or experimental. We feature works of dance, music, theatre, and the digital and visual arts by artists who question their discipline and are looking to experiment with new forms, in both English and French. After seventeen years, Les Filles électriques and its festival has managed to leave their mark on Canada’s artistic and cultural landscape.
We often receive project proposals from artists based in Montreal and we are keen on receiving proposals by artists from other Canadian provinces.

The Yogen Früz Pinkberry Brain Project is the Toronto art installation that took the city by storm in the summers of 2016, 2017 and 2018. Brain sculptures designed by a diverse group of artists were placed on display in high-traffic areas such as Nathan Phillips Square and the Distillery District.
Now, we’re getting ready to begin creating for 2019. We want to know what’s in your brain! In the summer of 2019 we will be beautifying our streetscapes by placing another set of unique sculptures on display, and we’re calling all artists to submit their concepts for consideration.
In an effort to end stigma and promote progressive, positive conversations around mental health and wellness, the Mindful Project is organizing its 3rd Annual exhibition: Roots|Routes. The exhibition also recognizes Canadian Mental Health Association’s Mental Health Week (May 6-12) and the National Youth Week.
Artists and makers are invited to articulate their roots or routes in relation to mental health and wellness through visual arts. Your roots are personal to your past and self-identity. Your roots can lead you to follow certain routes or charter new ones along your personal journey. Your experiences along these routes are important because they transform you and affect your mental well-being. Submissions will be juried and selected artworks will be exhibited to spark positive conversations and ignite change in social attitudes.
The exhibition will be held at the Newmarket Old Town Hall in Newmarket Ontario
If interested, contact Logan Bales
