Sylvia Trotter Ewens: Taming Grief: The Banana Trees Stand Vigil in Your Resting Place

June 12th - August 16th, 2024
Sylvia Trotter Ewens Leaf Pile
NoteThe gallery is closed for June 24, and July 1st holidays.

The Warren G. Flowers Art Gallery is proud to offer it’s first ever summer artist residency to alumna Sylvia Trotter Ewens (Fine Arts, 2014).  Sylvia will utilize the time and space to advance paintings and work on projections in completion of her MFA (Painting) at Concordia University.

She writes, ‘This is a body of work pulling from writings I’ve made on my time caregiving and experiencing loss after my mother’s passing. In these writings I used the garden as an allegory for these experiences as I tackled the memories of this time through writing and painting as a means to congeal its memory. 

Vernissage: Thursday, July 18th, 2024 at 5:00pm

Untitled: Dawson College Commercial Photography

December 19th, 2022 - January 10th, 2023

Untitled is a varied collection of images presented by the fall 2022 graduates of Dawson’s AEC Commercial Photography Program.

Seven students, including Fiona Campanelli, Valeria Cori-Manocchio, Surah Field-Green, Nicholas Gagnon, Molière Solon, Nadim Zakkour and Atena Zare, showcase their work in portraiture, fashion, product, sports photography and more. Their adventure at Dawson began in an unusual way–on a computer instead of in a classroom. Pursuing photography during a global pandemic wasn’t always easy, but they learned to hone their craft, and present their achievements with pride here.

Pareidolia: Dawson College Professional Photography

December 8th - 15th, 2022
Mateo Vega Cantu

Pareidolia is the ability to see or make pictures out of randomness. Seeing beyond what the average person sees and expressing that vision in an image is a large part of training to be a photographer. This collection of work by Dawson’s third-year photography students embodies how they see people, places or objects in their world.

Twenty two students are showing their work, including: Ayah Alatrash, Yisségnon-Chris Avosse, Sophie Becquet, Samuel Bermudez Fernandez, Lemuel Campbell, Mark Cedeno Moreno, Emma Cloghesy, Emma Diz-Giguère, Jilliane Flores, Jade Franco-Ehrmann, Alexe Grignard, Elizabeth Huppé, Sandra Kucko, Desireen Layne, Bramanda Mahaputra, Nour Naggar-Osama, Maya Naidu, Thibault Quach, Damon Roloff, Bianca Tedeschi, Mateo Vega Cantu, and Daphné Voisine.

Anna Williams, Remedy, 2017

The Warren G. Flowers Art Gallery is pleased to present the work of Ottawa-based artist Anna Williams. This is the first Montreal exhibition of Williams, who has created technically and conceptually complex prints and bronze sculptures which reinterpret female roles, gender conformity, and attitudes towards nature in classical Greek myths.

Born in Ottawa, Anna Williams studied sculpture and printmaking at Mount Allison University (Sackville, New Brunswick), before returning to Ottawa, where she continues to work, garden, and live with her wife, children, dogs and an excessive number of houseplants.

a meadow holds many life-forms

June 10th - August 24th, 2022

Departing from The Grove, the title of the 2022 exhibition of Visual Arts graduates from Dawson College, a meadow holds many life-forms presents a selection of strong and innovative work by nine upcoming artists from that cohort: Alicia Ferguson, Jade, Victoria Petrecca-Berthelet, Sabrina Schmidt, Boning Tao, Phan Chau Anh Thai, Kathy Mai Truong, and Kessem Vaknin.

Like any ecosystem, a healthy meadow displays diversity and sustains that divergence and difference over time.

Resistance and Resilience: An online exhibition

October 8th, 2020 - June 30th, 2022

Exhibit website:

Twelve artists from first or second generation migrant/immigrant racialized communities of colour present work exploring  the  racism and systemic oppression they have experienced.   At times poetic, at times harrowing, their work in video, sculpture, installation and textiles seeks to open up dialogue and complexify discussions surrounding migration and narratives of nationalism, benevolence, and fear.

Initially proposed by Diana Rice of the Dawson College Centre for Peace, the exhibition was also conceived to include student, or emerging artists, who were selected by a jury following an open call for submissions.

Lan Florence Yee: Sharp Tools for Unripe Fruit

March 3rd - April 14th, 2022

Sharp Tools for Unripe Fruit underscores the awkwardness of monumentality and its precarious taste for nostalgia. The unfinished business of commemoration takes the form of hand-embroidered text, choosing the anti-spectacular visual elements of watermarks and default fonts.

Inspired by traditional printmaking processes, the PROOF series attempts to hold the desire for archival presence with the problems of its structure. In these interrupted photographs, the various subjects are unable (or unwilling) to be claimed.
