    Gallery 101 is proud to present Material Witness: Art, Activism, Fibre

    Curated by Laura Margita, featuring work by Barry Ace, Karina Bergmans, Bozica Radjenovic, Mona Sharma, and Emily Rose Michaud

    The work Ms. Michaud is presenting was created with an artistic development and production residency made possible through the Dennis Tourbin Fund for Emerging Artists. The Dennis Tourbin Fund for Emerging Artists at the Community Foundation of Ottawa, is a permanent tribute to the greatly respected late Ottawa artist and his legacy. The fund seeks to encourage emerging artists to carry out creative works of art that cross disciplines and traditional boundaries. It also seeks to promote the presentation of art outside of the gallery walls into the public arena, reaching new audiences and engaging the community. Special thanks to the Dennis Tourbin Fund for Emerging Artists, The Independent Filmmakers of Ottawa, The Community Foundation of Ottawa, The National Art Gallery, and the Peoples' Social Forum.
