Artists on Elgin and Science North to feature "Awakening" a group exhibit of local emerging talent

SUDBURY, On – April 14, 2014 – Artists on Elgin and Science North are proud to introduce and promote the work of three new emerging artists this April. The two organizations have come together to present a group exhibit entitled "Awakening", featuring the work of Sophie LeBlanc, Paityn Fitzgerald and Madison Kotyluk.. The exhibit will be open to the public on April 15, 2014 and can be found on display in Science North’s Sunwalk.

This show is part of Artists on Elgin’s initiative to support and promote local emerging visual artists under thirty who are not members of the organization. This is the fourth exhibit that Science North has offered to display as an extension of Artists on Elgin’s Art About Town project, which displays the work of AOE’s members at various local venues.

"These talented young women show us just how promising the future of arts in our community will be", explained Courtney Natale, Business Promotions Coordinator with The Northern Artist Gallery/ Artists on Elgin.

The group exhibit Awakening will be on display beginning April 15, 2014 and will remain on display for two months. The exhibit will feature various styles of paintings by emerging local artists. The public is encouraged to come to Science North’s Sunwalk to view the exhibit where all works will be available for purchase.

"Producing work of this caliber at such a young age is exciting to see. One artist is as young as 13 years old", explained Courtney Natale, Business Promotions Coordinator with The Northern Artist Gallery/ Artists on Elgin. "This exhibit is a must see!"

Artists on Elgin is a project of its parent organization, The Northern Artist Gallery, where artists can exhibit, promote and sell their work in an attractive and professional gallery space. Artists on Elgin aims to build mutually beneficial partnerships between the artists and the community by addressing the business and marketing needs of the local art industry.

DYING TO LIVE: Death May Be a Second Chance
…Book Signing with Gladys McElrea March 22nd

Gladys McElrea, aka The Northern Gypsie, has recently released her first book, and will be at Chapters on the Kingsway, March 22nd. She will be available between 1 and 4pm to visit, and sign copies of her book DYING TO LIVE: Death May Be a Second Chance.

About the Author:
Gladys McElrea comes from a long line of traditional family story tellers, so it is no surprise that she has a background in media studies from Lambton College in Sarnia Ontario. She performed as a singer/songwriter, under the name Northern Gypsie, for fifteen years in the Greater Sudbury region; producing two recording projects. Gladys’s first publishing experience, was a book of self-published poems entitled Gypsie Song. She had created it with the intention of presenting it to her father as a birthday gift, but the project took on a life of its own. For the last five years, Gladys has been a freelance contributor for the Great North Arrow, a popular independent publication in Northern Ontario.
In true Northern Gypsie fashion, Gladys relocated with her husband to Western Canada in 2011, enjoying a brief stay in Thompson Manitoba, before moving to Saskatoon Saskatchewan. She now lives in Moose Jaw. When she is not working on her next book, Gladys is happily exploring Western Canada with her husband. www.gladysmcelrea.com

DYING TO LIVE: Death May Be a Second Chance, is a fast paced story of what comes after a disastrous girls night out. Cherri and her best friend are attacked while on their way home from a popular singles night club, by predators her friend met earlier that night. She is left dying in an ally while her friend is abducted, and later found raped and murdered. As Cherri’s life is slipping away from her, a mysterious stranger she had encountered at the same club earlier, appears beside her. She asks him to help her, but her rescuer is not human and his solution has dark consequences. In order to save her, Adrian transforms Cherri into an immortal. Now Cherri must reconcile her new existence with her former human life. She has two daughters to nurture, a friend to grieve for, a shaky marriage to settle, and a growing attraction to her mentor to manage. She desperately wants to keep her double life a secret, but secrets have a way of stepping out into the light when you least expect them to. ISBN 978-1-62516-281-6

Steve McDade – Jazz Trumpeter / Flugelhornist

Steve McDade began playing the trumpet at the age of 12, touring Europe and North America to participate in band competitions. Two years later, he was featured as a soloist at Hamilton Place in Hamilton, Ontario. He played professionally throughout the area and entered the Humber College Jazz Studies program when he was 16 years old.

Steve McDade has been a member of Manteca and The Boss Brass since the 1980s, touring the world with both bands and playing on their Grammy and JUNO Award-winning recordings. He has performed in major jazz festivals all over the world with Rob McConnell and The Boss Brass and as a member of The Rob McConnell Tentet.

He has played and recorded with some of the biggest names, ensembles, bands, and orchestras on the arts and entertainment scene including Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Doc Severinsen, Diana Krall, Mel Torme, Ella Fitzgerald, The Toronto Symphony, Manhattan Transfer, and worked and recorded with Doc Kupka of Tower of Power.

Tickets are $10 and are available at La Fromagerie (5 Cedar Street) and at Hair To Live For in the Cedar Pointe Mall. Tickets are limited, so pick them up soon.

About the Joan Mantle Music Trust

The Joan Mantle Music Trust was established in the fall of 2008 to help refresh, modernize and revitalize school music programs in the Rainbow District School Board.

The Trust allocates funding for musical instruments and equipment to selected schools on a rotating basis. The Trust also accepts the donation of new and used musical instruments and allocates them to schools in need. This ensures that there is an ongoing improvement in the condition of musical equipment throughout the Board, allowing students to achieve more in their musical studies together.

Joan Mantle dedicated many years to music education in Rainbow Schools. She passed away on June 9, 2009, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Canadian Musician is produced bi-monthly by Norris-Whitney Communications Incorporated. Published since 1979, the magazine’s primary interest is to profile Canadian musicians and musical events.

 

The Trews are on the cover of the current issue. In the past, the magazine has profiled Avril Lavigne, Rush, The Sheepdogs, The Tragically Hip and Hedley, among others.

LUminaries Reading Series Presents Margaret Christakos and Matthew Heiti, Thursday Feb. 6, Living with Lakes Centre, 7:00 pm
Thursday Feb. 6th, from 7:00-10:00, local Sudbury author Matthew Heiti and returning Sudbury poet Margaret Christakos bring new material to the Vale Living with Lakes Centre on the Laurentian campus as part of the LUminaries Reading Series
Matthew Heiti, playwright-in-residence of the Sudbury Theatre Centre, will read from his first novel The City Still Breathing (a literary crime novel set in Sudbury in the 1980s), and acclaimed poet Margaret Christakos, former Sudbury resident, will read from her intriguing poetic social media investigation Multitudes.

Drenched in 1980s nostalgia, Matthew Heiti's The City Still Breathing is a book about a dead body that is found on the side of Highway 17 outside Sudbury. Naked, throat slashed, no identification. It disappears from the back of a police van and begins a strange odyssey, making its way, over the course of one early winter day, all around the northern Ontario town and through the lives of eleven very different people.

'A fantastic debut ... The City Still Breathing brings to life the strange, proud beauty of has-beens and also-rans in one relentlessly hard-luck town.' -- National Post

Margaret Christakos's ninth collection, Multitudes, is a rousing, witty foray into a timely frontier of public spaces, poetic forms, private longings and virtual relocations. With her trademark linguistic sonar, Christakos freshly filters Whitman's 'Song of Myself' through the intimate address of social media where individuals conduct flamboyant acts of lament protest, erotic self-dispersal and indelible spectacle.

'Like Christakos's other work, Multitudes is sexy, excessive, slyly ironic, shifting, maternal, quotidian, joyous, lyric yet procedural ... Christakos extracts and manipulates the specific language of Facebook and Twitter, but deftly recombines this text with all her usual humour and tenderness.' -- Lemon Hound

The Ontario Arts Council Releases
Phase I Strategic Planning Report

Toronto, January 21, 2014 – The Ontario Arts Council’s (OAC) strategic planning process continues on schedule with a draft strategic plan to be submitted for approval to OAC’s board of directors followed by a public launch of the plan this spring.
This work is being greatly informed by Phase I of the process – the information gathering stage. It began with an environmental scan focused on the external issues and trends currently affecting the Ontario arts sector and those anticipated in the future.This was followed by consultation with external stakeholders through an online survey and a one-day focus group session to delve more deeply into the survey findings.
In June 2013, OAC sent an online questionnaire to the 28,000 people who regularly receive OAC’s newsletter – individual artists, organizations receiving operating grants from OAC, other funders and stakeholders in the arts. The e-mail also included a request to forward the survey link to others with a connection to Ontario arts. Additionally, the survey was tweeted by OAC and others and posted on OAC’s website. A video version of the e-mail was available in American Sign Language. The survey covered a variety of topics including: the key needs and issues facing the arts sector, those that OAC should address, OAC’s roles, the appropriate focus of OAC’s activities, an exploration of public value, and OAC’s goals over the next five years. A total of 1,858 individuals responded to the survey, resulting in 1,460 completed questionnaires.
Data gathering culminated with a one-day focus group session on July 12 with 49 people (peer assessors on OAC grant review panels from the previous 18 months and participants in OAC’s Equity Plan focus groups), to dig more deeply into key themes emerging from the survey. The participants represented a broad spectrum of diversity, including artistic disciplines/practices, gender, age, language, people with disabilities as well as OAC’s current priority groups (Aboriginal, francophone, culturally diverse/persons of colour, new generation, and regional).
It’s clear from the number of individuals who took the time to complete the online survey or participate in the focus group session that people care deeply about the arts in Ontario and about OAC.The respondents and participants – including a diverse mix of artists, arts organizations and others, from across the province – shared their candid views about what OAC might consider addressing or fulfilling over the next five years. Their thoughtful opinions, responses and ideas are helping to shape OAC’s new strategic plan.
More details on the findings from the environmental scan, survey and focus group session are available in the Summary of the External Consultation Phase.
OAC’s strategic planning process is being led by OAC’s Research Office. Phase I components were contributed by Robyn Jeffrey Writing & Editing Services, The Monarch Park Group Inc., and Consulting Matrix.

Jazzworkz Concert Series

 

Jazz Singer Melissa Lauren to perform Saturday, November 9th

 

The second concert in the Jazzworkz Concert Series will showcase Jazz singer Melissa Lauren on Saturday, November 9, 2013.

 

The Jazzworkz Concert Series, launched in the spring of 2012 by producer Jack Broumpton, celebrates the expanding growth and influence of jazz music in the Sudbury community. A portion of the proceeds from the Jazzworkz Concert Series will continue to support the Joan Mantle Music Trust, which provides musical instruments to students in Rainbow Schools.

 

Melissa Lauren is an accomplished young singer and songwriter making her mark on the Canadian music scene. With a strong influence in jazz and blues, Melissa Lauren has developed an original style of her own, melting together old school sounds with a modern flare.

 

Her latest album, “The Other Side”, was released in March 2012 to great reviews and is a collection of original compositions and standards. The CD is a tribute to the jazz and swing sounds that shaped the Toronto songwriter’s musical style.  Quickly making a place for itself on Canadian charts, the album offers a variety of classic sounds, mixed with modern pop sensibilities.

 

Melissa Lauren has performed as part of the Toronto Downtown Jazz Festival, Beaches International Jazz Festival, Markham Jazz Festival and Oakville International Jazz Festival as well as  Canadian Music Week. She recently hit the Canadian Festival scene this year.

 

The concert begins at 8 pm and takes place at St. Peter’s Church, 203 York Street in Sudbury. Admission is $10 for students and $20 for adults. Tickets are available at Black Cat on Durham Street and Hair to Live For in the Cedar Pointe Mall.

 

The concerts are held at St. Peter's United Church because of its warm acoustics. “It is a wonderful atmosphere to listen to jazz in an intimate setting” said producer Jack Broumpton. “In addition to the concert series, we hope to extend our jazz outreach this season with some educational workshops so the public can get an inside look at jazz performance.”

 

He added: “The series also allows us to support the Joan Mantle Music Trust. As a long-time music teacher, I recognize the importance of music in our schools and our community. The series will highlight the efforts of the Joan Mantle Music Trust and the great results it has produced to support music programs in Rainbow Schools.”

 

About the Joan Mantle Music Trust

 

The Joan Mantle Music Trust was established in the fall of 2008 to help refresh, modernize and revitalize school music programs in the Rainbow District School Board. The Joan Mantle Music Trust allocates funds to school music programs in Rainbow District School Board, one school at a time.  This ensures that there is a tangible improvement in the condition of equipment in an entire department, allowing for students to achieve more in their musical studies together.

 

Joan Mantle dedicated many years to music education in Rainbow Schools. She passed away on June 9, 2009, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Fall 2013 Titles from Scrivener Press

Dark Enough to Dance

Wolf Man Joe LaFlamme

Dark Enough to Dance 

by Colin Hayward

Two Novellas and Two Short Stories comprise the latest collection by Sudbury 's Colin Hayward

In the Prairie Fire review of Other Times Other Places (Scrivener 2006), the reviewer asked for “More from this author, please.” So here are four more travel tales, this time set in England, Cuba, Thailand and France. Each traveller arrives with clear expectations, but during the intricate dance with local cultures and local languages, the clear path soon begins to veer in unanticipated directions.  Sometimes the way is uncomfortable, sometimes exhausting, sometimes even dangerous.  Not until the characters begin to feel the local rhythms, to discover that here it is finally dark enough to dance, are they really able to unpack the baggage they have been carrying ever since they left home.  

Wolf Man Joe LaFlamme: Tamer Untamed

by Suzanne F. Charron

Imagine a strapping Canadian trapper raising timber wolves to pull his sleigh; now imagine him mushing his wolf team down Elm Street in Sudbury, or Ste. Catherine Street in Montreal, or Bay Street in Toronto, or even Broadway in New York; imagine him travelling by plane with his untethered and un-caged wolves, and later his moose; imagine him surviving wolf mutinies and a plane crash, or escorting his moose into both posh banquet rooms and the local pub for a beer, or trucking a live moose to the International Order of the Moose convention in Ohio, or accompanying his moose to ABC radio in New York, where his pet was guest on a tourist show—and now imagine that simultaneously with these exploits he is bootlegging his moonshine to make ends meet and spice up his life.

Well, no need to imagine. Joe “Wolf Man” LaFlamme did all this and more during his three decades as a wild animal trainer in Northern Ontario. His great love of the animals of the boreal forest combined with his own untamed spirit turned him into a legend, a true Canadian “original” whose fame spread from Gogama, midway between Sudbury and Timmins, throughout Canada and the United States. He ended his unusual career as a private zoo keeper and conservationist in Montreal.

The Sudbury Arts Council is passing this information to our members.

 

Dear colleagues,

The Greater Sudbury Synergy Project (GSSP) is a proposed multi-use arts and convention facility dedicated to serving the cultural, business, social enterprise and tourism needs of the community. It will be based upon an economically sustainable, community governance model and located within the area of the downtown redevelopment master plan. 

We have engaged the firms of ArtExpert.ca and Sceno Plus, with global expertise in the planning and development of community arts, cultural and conference centres to facilitate a community consultation and concept design process which will assist us in evaluating the needs of organizations and individuals wishing to be part of the proposed Project. 

Today, we invite you to take part in a survey in order to assess your level of interest and your estimated requirements within the proposed multi-use venue model. This survey is part of the design charrette and related activities which will be used to establish the potential business case. For more information about the Project, please visit our website at www.sudburysynergyproject.ca

Survey to be completed by Monday, June 10th at 9 AM.

Please click this link to access the survey.

Thank you!

 


John Caruso, Chair
