Art in The Bullring

Updated: Nov 24, 2020

Hello, and welcome!


Kaleidoscope Magazine is pleased to present a virtual tour of Art in The Bullring, in partnership with the Fine Arts Network (FAN), The Bullring, and The Central Student Association (CSA).


Art in The Bullring is an annual event traditionally co-hosted by the Fine Arts Network and The Bullring. It is a juried art show open to all University of Guelph undergraduate students where five winning artists will be selected to install their work in The Bullring for the remainder of the school year. Although there were physical restrictions this year, we are happy to announce we received many submissions of artworks, proving the resilience and creativity of our students during an unprecedented time.


The five winners will be announced on November 23rd with a separate blog post. After the winners are selected, we will add each artist's name and statement to their work on this post. The CSA will be having a Student's Choice Award on their Instagram on November 23rd.


Thank you to our talented MFA students who volunteered to be our jurors: Alicia Barbieri, Ella Gonzales, and Chantal Khoury.

Artists


Addi Lemmon is a 5th year Art History and Studio Art major at the University of Guelph working primarily in watercolour, collage, and acrylic painting to convey childhood memory through systematic abstraction. Currently she is focused on her experience of outdoor play and growing up in southern Ontario, and creating a positive sense of nostalgia for the viewer. Find Addi on Instagram @addi.margaret


Claire Stewart is a third year studio art major with an interest in drawing, printmaking and experimental practices. She converses with the divine presence that is available to tap into during moments of creation. Her work is an intuitive, gestural response to the medium at hand and an exploration of freedom within the experience of art making. Untethered, channeled, releasing.


Victoria Abballe is a third-year Studio Art major whose work involves photography, painting, drawing, printmaking, and more. Victoria's artwork is inspired by nature and the environment. Check out her Instagram for more! @vabballeart


Marjan Kaviani is a studio art major and a recent graduate from the Claude Watson Arts Program at Earl Haig Secondary School. Her interest in art began when she was very young; her mother passed down her knowledge as an artist and her father passed down his interest in poetry to her.

Anna Golding is a student at the University of Guelph majoring in studio art. She works with any mediums she can get her hands on, but recently she’s been working with spray paint and sharpie. Anna takes the use of bold colours to a whole new level and documents most - if not all - of the artistic process throughout the creation of all her artworks. Her style is an ever-changing force of self expression that begs for viewer response, both good and bad.

Hannah West is a Studio Art major with a minor in History and is currently in her third year. She is involved in many art forms, such as drawing, painting, printmaking and digital art. She primarily enjoys traditional drawing, using mostly coloured pencils and ink. You can find more of her art at @artbyhwest on Instagram.


Ray Fleming is a studio art major living in Guelph having great time!


Winnie Chen is a second year student in Arts and Science minoring in Studio Art. She focuses on painting/drawing realistic and surrealistic paintings. You can follow her @w1nart and _winniec_.


Terry Yauri is a fourth-year Studio Art major and History minor who primarily works in Painting. She is interested in legends, myths and supernatural occurrences, which is the central theme of her work.


Farhad Omarzad is a Guelph based lifestyle photographer who has been in practice for several years. In his personal practice, Farhad’s experience with both rural and urban environments provides him with a unique perspective on the natural and undiscovered world around us. Travelling and meeting new people has been an opportunity to expand his understanding of different cultures beyond his own. Being of Afghan heritage, he is inspired by photographers like Steve McCurry who document vanishing cultures of places the viewer has never visited.


Laura Vautour is in her fourth year of Studio Art. Her practice is multi-disciplinary with a focus on printmaking and photography processes.

David Bowen is a compsci student who is taking SART courses to do the minor.


Colleen Alcorn is a gender queer/queer artist in the 4th year of their Studio Art degree. Focusing on the spaces between, Colleen uses line to explore balance in her art. She aims to create thought provoking art with found materials and up-cycling.

Alexa Collette is a fourth year student double majoring in Studio Art and Psychology. She uses drawing and painting to depict personal experiences with mental illness. She hopes to generate feelings of empathy and educate the public about mental health.

Emma Ongman is in her final year at the University of Guelph, double majoring in Studio Art and Criminal Justice and Public Policy. She is an interdisciplinary artist interested in a variety of topics, but primarily her work focuses on technology, failure, and creating a space between the electronic and physical worlds. Her website is emmaongman.com.







This concludes the 2020 Art in The Bullring Show. Thank you for attending!
