It's that time of year when art lovers discover the latest sampling of local talent at The Eyelevel Gallery. The Folks Fest: Annual Members' Exhibition will feature a variety of artists in video work, photography, installation and textiles. "What makes the event special is that there's no curator picking and choosing the artwork," says Elizabeth Johnson, coordinator at Eyelevel. "We encourage our members to showcase what they want." Artists that will be showing include NSCAD student Stephanie Yee, Leigh Kirkpatrick and Therese Bombardier. Yee is known for her video and performance art while Kirkpatrick has had a recent success with Operating Room Photographs. Therese Bombardier, a recent member of the gallery, shows her passion for the environment in her work. Other artists showcased include TOP BUNK, Elise Graham and Kelly Markovich.
Opening reception Saturday July 28, 2pm, To August 18, Eyelevel Gallery, 2159 Gottingen Street
