Wake up in a dreamland with Nathalie Grice’s interactive installation La Forêt des Folies. This hand-sculpted installation is intended as an exploration of Canadian wildlife through an urban cultural lense.

"Rewind. Replay." is our opportunity to showcase the works of our talented artists without the context of the themed exhibition. New works by Olivia Johnston, Julie Himel, Patti Normand and Marney McDiarmid are paired with outstanding accomplishments of previous events - Vacationland by Marjolyn Van Der Hart, Breathing Spaces by Lori Richards, Rebellious Nature by Drew Mosley, and Paper with Michelle Valberg to name but a few.
The result is a visual feast and gets us in the mood to celebrate our tenth year!
We hope you'll stop by.

Project SPACE is pleased to welcome award winning photographer, Michelle Valberg with new scenes of Canada for Canada 150.
For over 28 years, Michelle Valberg has photographed Canadian landscapes and wildlife with the intention of regenerating simple beauty into a deeper reflection of humanity. Valberg’s portrayals of the natural world aim to draw viewers toward inner contemplation, based on the idea that building awareness and educating others through nature photography can inspire people to be better stewards of the natural world. By developing a deeper understanding of the interconnections between people, animals, and the environment, she believes that others can be motivated to take action in their local communities and beyond.
Valberg is one of seven Canadian Nikon Ambassadors and the first Canadian Geographic Photographer-in-Residence.
As Canada and the nation's capital gets ready to celebrate it's 150th year, Toronto based artist, Marjolyn Van der Hart explores Canadian midcentury history in shaping our identity. Canada was perceived as the great outdoors during the 1950s and 60s. Working with vintage advertising and postcards, Marjolyn Van der Hart creates works that see Canada as a place to escape into an untouched wilderness that can be explored and experienced.
