 Tanakiwin: Home and Native Land

Rational Expressions Gallery is very pleased to announce that Alfred Villeneuve has a solo show of works on now. Show runs until Sunday August 20th.  If Algonquin Park is near and dear to you, then you have to see this show.

Alfred says :
“Living and working in the same locale where I was born and raised (Madawaska & Ottawa Valleys, Algonquin Park Region), has granted me a familiarity with the land; a painterly intimacy; sensitive to its faintest change or movement.  My Father’s ancestors (Kichisippirini-Algonquin) regarded this area as “Tanakiwin” (homeland), and it still boasts what visitors might call-‘pristine wilderness.’”
We have studio works and some plein air pieces that art part of the show as well.  Meegwetch Alfred for the smudge and the Gathering Ceremony you performed at the opening on July 8th. This work is saturated with rich colour and movement. Come see them for yourself and be transported.
