Exhibit Margaret Peterson: A Search In Rhythm 2014-08-02 All Day
Description

A Search In Rhythm features the artworks and personal papers of the groundbreaking mid-20th century abstract painter, Margaret Peterson (1903-1997). Peterson had a big vision: to search for the spiritual realm, in rhythm with the artistic aims of Indigenous peoples across the world. Peterson's main medium was egg tempera on plywood panels—striking in size, colour, and form. By showcasing Peterson's possessions, photographs, and writing about her work alongside the works themselves, her vision and search is more fully realized. This is the first in an upcoming series of exhibitions presenting the University of Victoria's Artist Archives and Legacy Art Galleries joint holdings which demonstrates the rich research potential of this recently acquired material.

Other JDC Westination 2014-08-02 All Day
Description

JDC West is coming to UVic in 2015, and as charity is very important to the organization, the Organizing Committee is excited to announce “JDC Westination,” a fundraising initiative created to help raise money for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Victoria.

OC members are using Facebook, encouraging their friends to "JDC Westinate" (nominate) them to complete challenges. Once photo/video evidence is posted as proof that a challenge has been completed the 'challenger' then makes a donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters.

What type of nominations?  Random acts of kindness, volunteer hours, helping out in the community, or doing something silly/funny/crazy that will put a smile on people’s faces. Check out the OC member's Facebook accounts to learn more about what they are doing.

Film "The Immigrant" starring Marion Cotillard 2014-08-02 19:00:00
Description

THE IMMIGRANT

Director: James Gray   USA, 2014, 118 minutes; PG

Cast: Marion Cotillard, Joaquin Phoenix, Jeremy Renner

“FIVE STARS!” –Time Out New York

Marion Cotillard has made her share of unremarkable films. But when the French star, who won the Academy Award for her Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose, gets it right, the result is magic. Her Piaf was that. So was the whale trainer in Rust and Bone. In the title role of The Immigrant, as Ewa, a destitute Pole who arrives in New York City in 1921 in search of the American Dream, she once again astounds.

Ewa is plucked from the deportation line by Bruno Weiss (Joaquin Phoenix), who hands the guard a few bills to facilitate Ewa's hasty transfer to a Manhattan-bound boat. In fact, Bruno runs a bevy of bawdy women in a burlesque hall, offering their supplemental services to men willing to pay. He keeps his "little doves" several flights up in the tenement where he lives. Phoenix plays this guy with a kind of unpredictable, flummoxed charm. He can be wily and confident one minute, needy and pathetic the next.

Of course, Bruno falls in love with Ewa. And of course, there is a rival: Emil, also known as Orlando the Magician, a glinty-eyed prestidigitator (watch him levitate!) played with charisma and a pencil-thin mustache by Jeremy Renner. Bruno and Emil have a long history - in fact, they are cousins.

Cotillard gives Ewa an inner life, full of ferocity, vulnerability, cunning. In her peacock feathers and her cheap flapper's jewelry, or in a dark woolen shawl, huddled in the night, this woman is absolutely wondrous, absolutely real. –Philadelphia Inquirer

Exhibit Epiphany: Highlights from the Legacy Permanent Collection 2014-08-02 10:00
Description

May 1 to August 9, 2014

Curated by Mary Jo Hughes.

An epiphany in its broadest sense is the experience of sudden realization or insight. Through an epiphany, our world broadens and new understandings and ideas are unlocked. Indeed, this widening of perspective remains the ultimate goal for most artists. The experience of epiphany is what the exhibition aims to engender in viewers through highlights from the extensive permanent collection held by the University of Victoria's Legacy Art Galleries. It is intended that each piece will offer a unique insight or a fresh experience that was not entirely expected. Artists in the exhibition include, Robert Davidson, Emily Carr, Norval Morrisseau, Lawren Harris, Frederick Varley, Jean-Paul Riopelle, Myfannwy Pavelic, Robert Rauschenberg, and Jack Shadbolt, among others.
