This year Harcourt House is hosting the second annual Illuminate event to shine some light on what the local art centres offer the community and to get more people involved and aware of the local art centres. This summer Harcourt is working in collaboration with four other art centres including: FAVA, Guru Digital Arts, the Nina Haggerty Centre for the Arts, and E4C. This year, they are also introducing Pop-Up Illuminate; a week long exhibition showcasing light-based art. This show will be in Harcourt’s Main Gallery will be on display until July 25.
From 12:00-5:00pm participants will have the opportunity to create a small and individualized light box, and add to a group mural while experimenting with colour and shadow on an overhead projector. FAVA will be hosting a scratch film workshop with Lindsay McIntyre in the annex and in the evening all the activities will come together to complete the exhibition in the gallery space.
From 5:00-8:00pm you will have the chance to mingle and view the crafts that have gone on during the day, as well as several light-based projects from local artists and some live music. Finger food and light drinks will also be available during the evening to keep everyone refreshed.
