The Lake
Maggie Groat


“I’ve been thinking more and more about a news program I saw back in the 1990s, which showed salmon spawning up the Humber River. The fish were large, strong and determined. Since learning to swim when I was about five, in a small lake near Shawanaga, I’ve cooled off every summer in the Great Lakes. In 1996 Rebecca Belmore presented an an installation at the Power Plant, which is right next to Lake Ontario. The artwork included bags of water and a water fountain using water from Lake Ontario. This book reminds me of that artwork and continues important conversations about access to fresh water, relationship to water and water bodies.”

Wendy Critical Reader
Walter Scott


“Let’s face it, we all need to be critical even when it hurts. I think that Walter Scott’s comic characters have such complexity and vulnerability, and I find these qualities in the characters give me emotional entry points into his stories. Plus, I’ve always wanted the limited edition Wendy-nonstar-bucks cotton bag and poster!”

Ruth Cuthand: Back Talk, Works 1983 – 2009
Mendel Art Gallery


“I’m thrilled to be able to get Ruth Cuthand’s Talk Back at Art Metropole! This book contains her work from 1983 to 2009, including a suite of twelve major beadworks. I so admire Ruth Cuthand’s work and want to read this book for a curatorial project I’m working on for 2018.”
