|


Curator-in-Residence of the Fritzi Gallery, Malika Welsh, welcomes artists and the public to the opening of Birds of a Feather on January 22, 2015 at 6pm. This exhibition, in collaboration with TD Canada Trust and BAND Gallery, runs at the Lorraine Yale ‘Fritzi’ Gallery at 1233 Wellington West, 2nd floor, from January 20, 2015 to March 8, 2015. Vernissage Thursday, January 22 2015 from 6 to 8 pm

The ‘Fritzi’ Gallery celebrates Black History Month with an intriguing look into the experiences, cultures and collaborations that shape who we are. This exhibition brings together a number of Ottawa artists to celebrate our cultural and social commonalities.

   "Although we may be of different colour, gender, sexual orientation, or religion, we are all “minorities". We all have experienced similar struggles and worked to overcome them in similar ways,” says Malika Welsh, the gallery’s Curator-in-Residence. “I invite you to explore what it means to be considered a “minority” in 2015 through these paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures and photography.”

The Fritzi Gallery is located on the second floor of the Irving Greenberg Theatre Centre.
