Meeting Minutes

The Power of the Doodle(r)

In The Craig Main Gallery

Opening Wednesday, February 28, 7-9pm

Exhibit runs through March 25th, 2018

“What did Einstein, JFK, Edison, Marie Curie, and Henry Ford have in common? They were all inveterate doodlers. These powerhouse minds knew instinctively that doodling is deep thinking in disguise-a simple, accessible, and dynamite tool for innovating and solving even the stickiest problems. I’m not Einstein, or Henry Ford, but I am an inveterate doodler, and it has transformed my life, and how I experience the world….Some of my drawings take 50+ hours and require controlled breathing and a calm mind. The benefits for me are two fold, the collecting and organizing of thoughts and how the outcome is a result of a meditative repetitive process.”

-Bruce Roosen

Missing Women

A Film by Anna Quon

in The Craig Case Galleries

Opening Wednesday, February 28, 7-9pm

Exhibit runs through March 25th, 2018

“Statement about the work
In it’s first incarnation from 2011, Missing Women was a page poem, prompted by news stories about the women who went missing on the Highway of Tears. Poet Anna Quon wanted to voice the ways in which women and their names have gone missing from history and from their own lives. The poem, a catalogue of erasure and disappearance, went through several revisions and additions, culminating in the 5 minute video of the same name, which Anna created herself thanks to a grant from the Canada Council for the Arts. Missing Women had its official debut at Halifax’s Smart Phone Film Festival in 2017.

Bio for Anna Quon
Anna Quon is a middle-aged, mixed race Mad woman born and raised in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. Anna likes to make thing with words and pictures– stories, poems, painting, digital collages and film. She is the author of two novels published by Invisible Publishing (Migration Songs, 2009 and Low 2013), and is currently working on her third. She is also in the middle of creating a memoir of madness in poetry. Anna lives at different times on one side of the bridge over Halifax Harbour or the other, with her laptop, clothes and as few belongings as she can reasonably posses to make moving around easier. ”
