Love Transforms Exhibition

Closing Reception

Reception:
Tuesday Feb 14, 2012, 7:00-9:00 pm

Storyteller Ariel Balevi will be reading The Red Pavilion: a story from the Haft Paykar as a finale to Queen Gallery’s Love Transforms Exhibition. This will be held on Tuesday, February 14th from 7:00pm to 9:00pm and will be accompanied by Persian music.

The Haft Paykar of Nizami Ganjavi (1141-1209) is one of the great romances of classical Persian literature. It tells the story of Bahram Gur, a king of Ancient Iran who marries seven princesses, each from a different realm. He builds for them a palace of seven pavilions, each with it own colour, each dedicated to one of the planets. Bahram Gur then engages in a journey through the seven pavilions where in each he hears from one of the princesses a story that teaches a lesson about love and about himself.

In the Red Pavilion, dedicated to the red planet Mars, the Princess of Russia tells Bahram Gur a story about a princess who refuses to relinquish her own destiny to anyone; and the untried prince to whom she teaches the language of courage and mutual respect.

Our opening was such an exciting triumph for both art lovers and artists that we decided to introduce more artworks and jewelry to the existing collection. So, come and celebrate Valentine’s Day by listening to the chords and love stories of Persian tradition and by supporting our romantic artists. We look forward to seeing you!

Fabricating Change Art Exhibit

Exhibit Times are:

Tue, Wed, Fri 11:30-6pm

Thurs 1:30-8:30pm

Sat 3:30-6:30pm

For more information and to RSVP, please contact thrive@metrac.org or call 416-397-0258 and 416 392-3135.

Thank you and hope to see you there.

On behalf of the Board of directors and the staff of METRAC (Metropolitan Action Committee on Violence Against Women and Children), we would like to invite you to the opening night  of  “ Fabricating Change Art  Exhibit“ on Friday, November 25,  6:30-9:00 PM at Queen Gallery, 382 Queen St. East (just east  of Parliament St.). Fabricating Change Art Exhibition is a Celebration of Women and Trans Art to Commemorate the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence.

Founded in 2002, THRIVE, the Multicultural Women’s Coalition Against Violence and Oppression was formed. THRIVE is a coalition of agencies and individuals working together to develop a response to violence against women of colour, Aboriginal women and their communities. THRIVE works actively for social change to end systemic forms of violence that women and trans folks experience.

Inspired by the Migrantas project in Germany, THRIVE worked with two local women artists to develop an arts-based installation project for diverse women to share experiences with and ideas about violence against women and youth. The project was entitled “Fabric of Violence: Fabricating Change.” Women’s art was displayed as part of the global 16 Days of Activism against Gender Violence Campaign. This small pilot was a success and demonstrated the potential that lies in Fabricating Change. In 2011, THRIVE expanded its reach and engaged more diverse women and trans persons across the city to challenge violence against women and youth through their own fabric art. We invite you to experience this art that will be on display at the Queen Gallery at 382 Queen St. E (@ Parliament) from November 25- December 9.
