Geopoetics – Ranges of Motion
Stewart Hall Art Gallery
The exhibition is built around the notions of mobility and movement, considered as identity markers for the chosen

Geopoetics: From one ocean to the other
Kid’s Corner – Stewart Hall
This exhibition is the product of a partnership between the Stewart Hall Art Gallery and the “Little Stew’Arts”, consisting of groups of students from Marguerite-Bourgeoys elementary school. The project was inspired by artists Matt Shane and Jim Holyoak, who were in residence at the Art Gallery last April. The Little Stew’Arts take over the Kids’ Corner with paper murals illustrating the landscapes, wildlife and flora of Canada’s seven physiographic regions.
