Proud at OCAD U coordinators, Casey Helm and Teddy Schaub curated this exhibition and here is their perspective on this art show:

The PROUD at OCAD U Exhibition features the work of LGBTQ+ identifying students here at OCAD. Art Exhibition spaces can be inaccessible spaces, especially for those whose identities intersect in different ways. The theme is simple: there is none! The participants were encouraged to bring in work they felt like showing off. PROUD is a community space and focuses on claiming our own space here at OCAD. Copies of the PROUD Community Zine are also available for free in the Learning Zone!

‘Perspectives’ is an exhibition showcasing the work of international students at OCAD U. While being international means different things to each student, it is oftentimes a big part of one’s identity. This is a small insight into the diverse body of work that international students are creating that highlights their abilities, personalities and passions.

A unifying theme of this exhibition is nature in greyscale or minimal colour. Using a palette of black and white or greyscale excluding aspects of colour offers collectively an exploration of nature in terms of visual form and tone.

This exhibition aims to provide students with an opportunity to explore the interpretation and portrayal of ‘nature’ in a new lens—through black and white/greyscale artworks (including artworks with minimal colour). The de-emphasis of colour as the primary artistic medium promotes an examination of the subject matter based on the emphasis of form, design, and values seen in nature, while interpreting the perpetuity of black and white imagery in relation to current developments of the world within a collective context …Kenny Tran & Emily Zou

Danielle Coleman & Mashayla Richie Abstract Works

Danielle Coleman & Mashayla Richie paintings, 2017

This exhibition features a series of works by two abstract painters from OCAD University; Danielle Coleman and Mashayla Ritchie.

Both artists bring a distinct approach to their work. Ritchie experiments on mixed media and texture with application and technique, while Coleman introduces experimental materials and old world imagery.

Mashayla Richie, 2017

Works featured by Ritchie includes studies and abstract paintings.

Acrylic paint and oil pastel/sticks are explored on miscellaneous surfaces. Utilizing plastic baggies as piping bags for acrylic paint, she creates an intrigue to the overall composition and texture of the work. In combination with an unconscious train of thought, these works embed past felt emotions and mental states.

Material experimentation is important to Danielle Coleman’s art practice. The use of glitter, protective sponge liner, electrical tape and floral textiles and her studio’s atmospheric component of disco and alternative break up tunes frames a context for the creative process.

Danielle Coleman

Combinations of colours reflect kitschy, nostalgic graphics and retro floral textiles through mixing vibrant, reflective and neon acrylic paints. Works seek to visualize the kitsch feeling of heartbreak of post relationship status.

Visit the Learning Zone Gallery.

On until October 28
