SOYRA: FROM MEMORY

Lucy Q U I N has been selected to participate in FROM MEMORY: A juried exhibition to examine and celebrate memories that construct our stories, exclusively featuring the Society of York Region Artists.

Opening Reception: Saturday January 12, 2019, 1 – 4pm

Exhibition Brief: Our memories are a collection of stored information, sensations and feelings, created from communal stories and fleeting memories. They nurture our traditions, inform daily functions and provide context for our lives. Memories establish where we’ve been, who we are and guide us to who we may become. Intensely personal and powerful, memories can trigger a broad range of responses.

Aurora Cultural Centre, 22 Church Street, Aurora ON. | auroraculturalcentre.ca | 905 713 1818

Free admission.

Tuesday, 10 am — 4 pm | Wednesday, 10 am — 8 pm | Thurs — Sat, 10 am — 4 pm

Oasis Centre for Bereavement: The Empty Chair

In the fall of 2018, Lucy Q U I N was invited to create a chair for auction at this moving event, an auction to raise funds and awareness for the Oasis Centre for Bereavement and Healing, which helps members of the York Region community navigate their grief journey. Lucy describes her thinking behind “River of Life,” the chair she created and was graciously purchased:

When someone we love passes away, the river of life overflows with sadness and tears. As time passes we somehow learn again to enjoy the warmth of the sun and the brightness of the light, and new branches grow from the darkness. This doesn’t mean we forget; it means that the river of life continues flowing just the way our loved one wished it would, for us to honour their memory. The river of life finds new life and purpose as a branch with fresh buds, ready to blossom with old and new possibilities.
