Janet Macpherson: A Canadian Bestiary is an unprecedented group of installations where the artist uses her unique visual language to convey a very personal view of Canada. Through four immersive installations that include sound design by Justin Haynes and Janet Macpherson, and video projections by Renée Lear, Macpherson revisits moments in Canadian history and questions commonly-held conceptions about the North, identity, and our relationship to landscape.

Each year a group of Schlifer clients participate in what has come to be known at the Schlifer as the Gardiner group. This unique trauma informed art therapy group runs for 11 weeks. The group is for women survivors of child sexual abuse/incest, adult sexual assault and intimate partner abuse. The women work with clay to produce a ceramic piece of art in reference to a common theme that is introduced in advance of their participation. Suzanne Thomson, an art therapist and Susan Low-Beer, a ceramic artist, facilitate the group. At the end of the 11 weeks, there is an opening night exhibition where group participants display their sculptures. The women are directly involved in the design and installation of the art exhibit, each time offering the public a unique and compelling window to their reflections on violence against women and their hopes for healing. Come join us for Consciousness Blooms, this year’s Gardiner group art exhibit.
