Film "TRACKS" 2014-07-25 19:00:00
Description

TRACKS

Director: John Curran   Australia, 2013, 112 minutes

Cast: Mia Wasikowska, Adam Driver, Rainer Bock

“A STIRRING AND BEAUTIFULLY SHOT ACCOUNT OF THE AUTHOR ROBYN DAVIDSON’S REAL-LIFE JOURNEY BY CAMEL ACROSS THE AUSTRALIAN OUTBACK.” --Independent

A journey of arduous physical challenges and incalculable spiritual rewards is evocatively rendered in this superb adaptation. Robyn Davidson’s remarkable journey in 1977 across 1,700 miles of Australian desert to the Indian Ocean with four camels and a dog is given a richly sensorial screen treatment. Alternately haunting, inspiring and dreamily meditative, this is a visually majestic film of transfixing moods and textures. Its stealth-like emotional charge is fueled by unerring work from Mia Wasikowska, her affecting performance grounded in the fortitude and determination essential to such an undertaking, at the same time subtly keeping an open window to her character’s fragility. –The Hollywood Reporter

“TRACKS WILL LEAD YOU TO A PLACE OF QUIET WONDER.”  –The Telegraph

Exhibit Margaret Peterson: A Search In Rhythm 2014-07-25 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.

Exhibit Epiphany: Highlights from the Legacy Permanent Collection 2014-07-25 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.

Other JDC Westination 2014-07-25 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.
