All Day LIFT Exhibition Series: Unobstructed Beauty (Multi-Day Event)

This year, the LIFT series features three female painters from the Waterloo Region: Lauren Judge, Marion R. Anderson, and Anne Filiatrault. Each artist shares a narrative that invites viewers to reflect on how we perceive and experience our surrounding environment.

The LIFT microgalleries are located on floors 4-6 of the Waterloo campus Library.

  • All Day C. Elizabeth Best: Nelson Small Legs Junior & Going Back Woman Exhibition (Multi-Day Event)

    This exhibition by C. Elizabeth Best explores modern Indigenous identity through her art practice and academic thesis work. See her artist statement below for a detailed description.

    On 16 May 1976, a young AIM activist killed himself in protest of the mishandling of Indigenous affairs by the Canadian federal government.

    This series of paintings complement my Master’s thesis. I made these pieces in tandem with my academic work. Despite the distance of 40 years, I mourned the loss of the young AIM activist. It wasn’t until I made a painting in his honour that I felt I could process this tragedy outside of myself.

    My second painting, the pink and turquoise rabbit, is an amalgamation of my own identity. Identity plays a central role in my thesis and this theme flowed naturally into the art I made during the past academic year.

    The series of three represent the main chapters of my paper. When I think about my thesis, bits and pieces float in and out of focus. I tried to capture that feeling with this series by using my notes to produce a visual representation of my thesis.

    This series represents the process I went through to understand the material I was reading and writing about. I think it is important for academics to experiment with different ways of presenting their work. Expression through art is how I have chosen to present my academic work to a varied audience. For more information, please see my thesis, Writing Activism: Indigenous Newsprint
    Media in the Era of Red Power, accessible through the Laurier Library.

    Don't just cope, Thrive! with mezzo-soprano and Laurier alumna Rebecca Hass.

    Do you feel like you are forever running after life, unable to catch up and get a comfortable seat? We can all feel this way at times. We search in vain for the 'pause' button so we can just catch our breath. But life isn't happening to us, we are active players in the unfolding story we are experiencing. The pause button we seek is in our hands, and with a few simple questions and ongoing practices we can begin to make the change we seek. Balance isn't a place you arrive and lock in place. It's and activity you engage in daily. Join me and learn three practices that can support your journey to ease and balance and ultimately a more peaceful and satisfying life every day.
