“Urban Legends” Art Exhibit Opening Reception – Stephanie Van Doleweerd

April 6 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

The Alex Dufresne Gallery is pleased to host “Urban Legends”, an exhibition by artist Stephanie Van Doleweerd. The opening reception will take place on Saturday April 6th from 2:00 – 4:00pm. There will be light refreshments, free museum admission, and the artist will be present.

In “Urban Legends” Van Doleweerd tackles themes of exploring ancestral roots and lifeways, our relationship to the land on which we find ourselves, and the stripping away and shaking off of destructive conditioning and harmful messaging from the broader culture, in favour of returning to a closer relationship with nature and each other.

Van Doleweerd moved to Northern Ontario from the GTA more than 20 years ago and it has profoundly affected her worldview and her work. She has shown in 18 group exhibitions, and has been on the boards of the White Water Gallery, Nipissing Region Curatorial Collective, and CBACH (now Creative Industries). This will be her second solo exhibition.

Van Doleweerd says, “This show, Urban Legends, celebrates people in my community who embody a love of nature, who challenge outdated societal norms, and who share my vision for a unified culture that respects and embraces both the differences and similarities between us.”
