Kick off your weekend with a performance by Wooly and meet the 2019 Artist in Residence, Mallory Tolcher! On the Fourth Friday of the month, Guelph Museums offers free admission to the Guelph Civic Museum after 5 p.m. Performance by Wooly at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m.
About Wooly: In 2017, four unique talents came together under the moniker Wooly. Wooly represents a collaboration of unique musical talents brought together through a common vision. Their music and lyrics are innovative, energetic, and insightful presenting a fresh view of the human experience and evoking a range of visceral responses. Emerging from diverse musical experiences and influences, members strive to present a fusion of folk, jazz, rock and alternative that is truly original.
About Mallory Tolcher, #GuelphMovesMe: Mallory Tolcher is a local artist and educator who specializes in community art, drawing and installation art. Since graduating from the University of Toronto and Sheridan College’s joint Art and Art History program in 2012, she has worked on a variety of public and private commissions including the creation of Canada’s largest sports-court mural in Palmerston, Ontario.
Tolcher’s project promotes physical fitness on Guelph’s trails through an outdoor art exhibition. The project will kick off by asking the community to submit photos of individuals who use the trails regularly as inspiration for 12 hand-drawn portraits.
The portraits will be installed at six points along the Silvercreek and Eramosa River trails at the beginning of September and changed out halfway through the project.
The project ends with an artist talk and trail walk on September 29 during Culture Days | Fête de la culture weekend.
