This first Art X Project exhibition will feature the visual art of local artists
Musical Stylings of Ava Nori.
Artwork from these artists will be on display and for sale with 100% of proceeds to the artists. We also ask that visitors support the artists with pay what you can donations to cover show preparation costs of the artists, again 100% of the donations go to the artists.
Due to Covid restrictions not all visitors may get the opportunity to meet the artists, so Rolling Pictures has used it’s expertise and resources to create videos of each of the artists that will be displayed on several monitors and in-house theatre so visitors can ”get to know” the artists.
The Art X Project was conceived by the partners as a way to support local early career inter-disciplinary artists by providing opportunities to display their work in a public space, gain experience in exhibition development, network with other local artists and build their portfolios.
Comments From the Partners
Robert Peace – Director, Community Relations – Rolling Picture Company
“As a new business in town we really wanted to be part of the arts scene in the City. We came to Future SSM with the idea of using our studios as an exhibition space and they were on board soon afterwards, says Robert Peace, Director of Community Relations with Rolling Pictures in Sault Ste Marie. While Covid-19 has kept our plans small for now, we hope to grow this event in the future and give opportunities to artists of all kinds in the Soo.”
Todd Fleet – Arts & Culture Coordinator – Future SSM
“ The project was developed with the partners to help implement action items from the City’s Culture Plan. Through the Culture Plan public consultation process it was an identified issue that artists found difficulty in being able to display their work in a public space, we think this is a great format for providing that opportunity while connecting with the downtown community and local businesses”.
Ashlyn McMillan – Interim Manager – SSM Downtown Association
“ The DTA is always looking for opportunities to provide more events and programming in the downtown core, while connecting membership with local artists/musicians. Arts and Culture are critical to make Downtown a vibrant place to be. We are pleased to work with neighbours Rolling Pictures, FutureSSM and local Artists for the Art X Project”.
