The Centre for All Canadians
Summer Gallery Opening Party

Road Work, 1969 acrylic polymer emulsion on Masonite

June 10| 7:00 p.m. | Studio 1

Join us at the Summer Gallery Opening Party to celebrate the opening of three new exhibitions: Generations: The Sobey Family and Canadian Art, Human Capital, and Conversation Pieces.

This evening reception will begin in Studio 1 with light food, a cash bar, and musical entertainment. After opening remarks, guests will be invited to make their way to the Gallery to explore the exhibitions at their own pace.

Organized and circulated by McMichael Canadian Art Collection and curated by Sarah Milroy, Generations: The Sobey Family and Canadian Art is one of Canada’s most impressive private collections. It braids together works by early European newcomers, titans of Canadian 20th century art, a rich display by the Québec Impressionists and Les Automatistes, as well as trailblazing artists of today, including contemporary Indigenous artists.

Organized and circulated by MacKenzie Art Gallery, Human Capital presents work that offers insight into the impact of Canada’s immigration policies and history: how it treats humans as capital, and the role it plays in shaping the complex and contested formation of a “Canadian identity”.

From Confederation Centre Art Gallery’s permanent collection, Conversation Pieces is a selection of works in and about dialogue. This exhibition has been curated by Pan Wendt.

Curator Sarah Milroy and Head of Exhibitions and Publications Jennifer Withrow from McMichael Canadian Art Collection, as well as Associate Curator Tak Pham from MacKenzie Art Gallery will be attending.

Arrive early as attendance is limited.

Artist Luis Jacob will give a presentation about his work, followed by a Q & A.

Luis is a longstanding collaborator with Confederation Centre Art Gallery. His work has shown here in two exhibitions, including Oh, Canada in 2014, and he co-curated the exhibition Funkaesthetics in 2009.

“He’s a thoughtful and accessible artist and thinker, and a fantastic speaker. We’re so glad to be able to welcome him back to P.E.I. this summer,” says CCAG curator Pan Wendt.

Jacob is in PEI for the month of June, as an artist-in-residence with Annandale Artist Residency. His residency is supported by Confederation Centre Art Gallery

What are Relaxed Performances?


Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.

These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.
