Shellicka Anglin’s Mint Green Bantu Knots at The Art Gallery of Guelph.

The Guelph art tour for Partners in Art members in September began at the Art Gallery of Guelph with the thought-provoking exhibition Critical Mass which features the work of established and emerging black artists from across the country. Focused on the complexity and diversity of blackness in a transnational context, the show featured works by Camille Turner, Jan Wade, Shellicka Anglin, Noah Brown, and Kosisochukwu Nnebe.  Critical Mass is running until January 6, 2019.

The day’s itinerary also included studio visits with artists John Kissick, Don Russell and Ron Shuebrook, as well as viewing exhibitions by Jessica Masters, Eileen MacArthur and Jenn E. Norton, to name but a few.
