Tuesday Night At The Museum

Date: May 19, 2015

Location: 97 Thomas Street East, Napanee

Category: Community Events

On May 19th, artist Marlene Hilton Moore will lead an engaging and anecdotal presentation about her artistic methods and historical research for the development and installation of the monuments that were unveiled by, The Governor General of Canada, Michaëlle Jean, in 2006. The Valiants Memorial is a monument to 350 years of the evolution of Canada through its military conflicts. The fourteen historical figures of this work were selected by Canadian historians to represent critical moments in our country’s history. These historical figures create a pageantry of history as one circulates amongst them in Confederation Square in Ottawa. The bronze figures, five life-size standing and nine life-size busts, are historically accurate in detail, costume, and portrait. It is the living presence of each historical figure, achieved through the sensitively sculpted portrait and accuracy of detail that moves beyond fact to create a memorable and evocative work. This presence reminds us that each of these heroes was a distinct human being who dedicated his or her life to faith in our country, its morals, and its principles. Tickets are $3 each and are available at the door. Find out more by calling the museum at 613-354-3027.

Swamp Ward Orchestra features Jan Le Clair on accordion, Alison Gowan on hurdy gurdies and bass, and Laura Murray on cello and banjo. They combine various European sounds from medieval to musette, circus to café, and write their own tunes in tribute to these traditions. Members of Swamp Ward Orchestra all sing, and love to throw themselves into very old songs as much as swinging jazz. They're a bit of Eastern Europe, a bit of Paris, and none of the everyday. For more information visit www.swampwardorchestra.com/video.cfm. It will be an evening of fine music that you won't want to miss. This event is proudly presented by the Lennox & Addington County Museum & Archives. Tickets are $3 each and are available at the door. Find out more by calling the museum at 613-354-3027.

Tuesday Night At The Museum

Date: June 16, 2015

Location: 97 Thomas Street East, Napanee

Category: Community Events

Exhibit opening! Join artist and photographer Tod Ainslie for an evening of talk. Tod will walk with us on the “Road to Freedom” through the lens of his pinhole camera. From a contemporary perspective, his photographs will guide you through the places and events prior to the Civil War and during a slave’s journey to get to the Promised Land known as Canada. Tod chooses historic sites that were seen through the eyes of the people who lived in that time, who traveled those roads and who lived their lives (or lost them) in these places. Tod captures a sense of historical truth in the images of these sites. However, 150 years of time and “progress” have either eroded or taken some of them out of this context, either through attempts to interpret them or the built environment has grown up around them. By using the specialized pinhole cameras for each site’s unique setting, a genuineness has been achieved. His beautiful photography captures a strong sense of the period’s aura, a sense of the places themselves and an empathy for the people whose lives were lived in them. About the Artist: Tod Ainslie is a practicing documentary pinhole photographer of historical sites and architecture, using his own self-designed and self-built cameras. His photographs straddle the fine line between purely documentary and fine art, as they capture not only the literal sites themselves, but also fragments of their aura and a sense of the people whose energies occupied them. He is particularly interested in the War of 1812 and the Underground Railroad. His work has been featured at the Royal Ontario Museum, Cambridge Centre for the Arts, The Carnegie Gallery, Grimsby Public Art Gallery, Toronto Image Works. and Old Fort York. Tickets are $3 each and are available at the door. Find out more by calling the museum at 613-354-3027.
