PROFILES is an exhibition of 6 local artists with curatorial statements provided by the White Water Gallery’s curatorial committee. This exhibition provides local artists the opportunity to exhibit their work after working directly with an emerging curator. A small publication will be made as well as an online exhibition featuring curatorial writings from each curator. We hope to expand this activity in the future and make PROFILES a yearly event.


June 8th to July 14th 2012

The White Water Gallery has recently launched a new exhibition that is designed to encourage the development of emerging curators and the promotion of artists from our region of Ontario working within contemporary and innovative fields. Profiles, featuring five local artists curated by five local emerging curators, creates a dynamic space in which the audience walks through five micro-exhibitions all housed within one room. The contrast between art forms, intentions and presentation methods creates an overwhelming sense of intrigue while giving the audience a glimpse into what artists are doing in our area. This is the first exhibition of this kind for the White Water Gallery, but we hope to make it an annual event which continues to offer experiences for emerging curators and a professional venue for local artists.
