Sylvester is going to be chasing Tweety all over the Woodstock Art Gallery! Bugs Bunny and Wile E. Coyote will be here too from November 10, 2018 - January 5, 2019. It’s all part of the exhibition The Art of Warner Bros. Cartoons, a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at how these classic cartoons were made. Through cels, model sheets, story sketches, animation drawings, and concept paintings, you’ll discover the evolution of Bugs Bunny, Elmer Fudd, Porky Pig, and so many other favourites.

Uncertain Bearings

 

Ron Milton, As the Crow Flies, 2005, Kinetic Sculpture bronze, brass and marble. Gift of the artist.

Exhibition Run: February 17, 2018 to January 26, 2019

Curated by Roberta Grosland, Head of Collections

Uncertain Bearings explores the age old question, “How do we find our way?” using works from the Woodstock Art Gallery’s permanent collection. All works in Uncertain Bearings deal in some form with direction, place and distance. However, they are about more than just a place or destination. The artists that have created these works inspire us to look at our environment or situations in new ways. In other words, they encourage us to take in our bearings.

A loved object is any item that is the cause or subject of passion. Everyday objects, including artworks, are often the recipients of our emotional investments. The artworks featured in The Loved Object were acquired by the Woodstock Art Gallery in the last six years and have been the subject of the passions of their owners and creators, past and present.
