Marginalia is an exhibition of book-arts related works by Lise Melhorn-Boe, of North Bay, Ontario and Juliet Jancso of Hamilton. Melhorn-Boe uses updated and alternative versions of traditional stories to expose and critique societal stereotypes. Jancso's ceramic figures are inspired by medieval and early renaissance drawings and woodcuts; a number of her most recent works are based on woodcuts from the collection of the Grimsby Public Art Gallery which will be exhibited along with Jancso's sculptures. The marginalization of people and art media are explored in this unusual look at the genre of book illustration. Maze, Grace Loney April - June. Iron Man, Brandon Vickerd May - August. Xtracurricular: A Highschool Art Exhibition, May 22- June 7. Special Events: Steeped in Music Concert Series. Visions 2009: Wayzgoose Book Arts Fair The Goose is back for his 31st year!
