In this series Liminal Animism, the masks of Venice help to reveal the animating spirits of nature. Liminal Animism appreciates the living soul in plants and other natural phenomenon. These photographs also represent a liminal zone — a fluid moment of crossover between nature and soul. In the tradition of Oscar Wilde who said ‘Give him a mask and he will tell you the truth’, Liminal Animism uses masks to reveal some truths about nature..
Please join the opening reception on Thursday, May 2nd from 7:00-10:oo pm at Gallery 1313 (1313 Queen Street W-near Brock).
Exhibit runs from May 1st through May 12th. Gallery hours: Wednesday-Sunday 1:00-6:00.

The complete books of Rhapsodies and Fantasias by Constantine Caravassilis for solo piano performed by internationally renowned Canadian pianist Christina Petrowska-Quilico are visions in sound, transcending lyrical poetry to passionate drama in an opera for the keyboard. Experience a world of intense and hypnotic soundscapes accompanied by projections on a screen of over 70 paintings created by Christina Petrowska-Quilico and inspired by the music. Driven by deep emotions and spirituality composer Constantine Caravassilis is intimately connected to his Hellenic roots, drawing inspiration from ancient Greek mythology and Byzantine music. His work also reflects his strong affinity to classical music ranging from the Baroque to impressionism. These virtuosic piano works are synaesthetically linked to colour and movement.
