Animikii Noodinag / Thunder Winds

Animikii Noodinag / Thunder Winds, a full day art gallery crawl and symposium, is the culmination of the Aboriginal Curatorial Residency project at the Judith & Norman Alix Art Gallery (JNAAG) which has been generously sponsored by the RBC Emerging Artists Support Project for the past two years.

The goal of the project was to investigate ways that the JNAAG could work collaboratively in and with the four Aboriginal communities located in Lambton County and the broader contemporary Aboriginal art scene in Canada. Through outreach, visiting artist residencies, workshops, and exhibitions, the focus has been on unlocking ideas, opening up discussions, creating dialogue and facilitating engagement.

It is with great pleasure that the JNAAG collaborates with Gallery in the Grove, The Lawrence House Centre for the Arts, and Artopia to celebrate the art and culture of artists from Aamjiwnaang, Walpole Island, Kettle and Stony Point alongside contemporary artists from Petrolia and the rest of Canada.

Please join us as we discover, discuss and celebrate our diverse community through art as we consider our collective past, present and future.
