The Fair Wind to play Fourth Friday concert celebrating new exhibitions at Guelph Museums

GUELPH, March 16, 2018: Celebrate the launch of Guelph Museums’ new exhibitions with free admission and a free concert Friday, March 23 at Guelph Civic Museum. The Fair Wind will perform as part of the Fourth Friday concert series to mark the opening of Focusing on Nature: Photography in the Natural World, and I STAND #InUnity.

The Fair Wind sings and plays the traditional music of England, Ireland and Scotland. The group is comprised of Carole Pines, Ruth Shushan, Mark Pancer and Bob Mino. For this occasion, The Fair Wind will be joined by the talented Eva McCauley as well as Friends of The Riverside Celtic College.

About the exhibitions
Today’s technological, urbanized culture meets the natural world in Focusing on Nature: Photography in the Natural World, an exhibition of digital photographs created by Guelph youth through Focus on Nature, a local organization that connects kids to nature through photography. Historical objects combined with the digital photographs tell the story of photographic technology in our ongoing and curious engagement of nature. Guest curated by Simon Bell.

I STAND #InUnity fosters a collective awareness of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women (MMIW) in Canada. Viewers are encouraged to explore and respond to contemporary colonialism. I STAND #InUnity is led by four Indigenous women in Guelph — Brittany Luby, Kimberley Anderson, Cara Wehkamp, and Maria Shallard — together with ally and artistic consultant Peter Denton.

Opening remarks are set for 6:30 p.m., and will be followed by the concert at 7 p.m.

Guelph Civic Museum is located at 52 Norfolk Street. Admission on Fourth Fridays is free from 5 to 9 p.m.
