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 daily from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

  • All Day Zaagi’idwin: Silent, Unquestionable Act of Love, a multimedia installation by artist Leanna Marshall (Multi-Day Event)

    Leanna Marshall is a member of Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug. Her art practice focuses on the art of ancestral storytelling – creating an intersection where viewers can meet to understand the essence of relationships, connection/disconnection and loss. Through the making and documentation of seven jingle dresses, Marshall explores the stories that have shaped her perception of the complexities of her family history in the context of Canadian history. The social inequities, resistance and sadness told in these narratives serves as a springboard to examine the act of healing, compassion and forgiveness.

    The program will open with a performance of music by Clara Schumann on the vintage Streicher fortepiano, played by Heather Taves. Next, the young emerging pianist and Laurier student Marko Pejanovic will play a work written by the young Johannes Brahms. These Variations on a theme by Robert Schumann were penned soon after a 20-year old Brahms first knocked on the door of the Schumann household in 1853. This will be followed by a piano duet by Brahms, performed by Walter Delahunt and Heather Taves. After intermission, Maestro Delahunt will play Brahms late masterpiece, the Intermezzi Opus 118. The evening will conclude with a Brahms Hungarian Rhapsody for piano duet.
