CALL FOR ARTISTS!

Image

Don’t believe what you see outside your window! Summer is coming and soon it will be the launch of “Destination Roseau 2014” a celebration of theatre, film, art and music, made possible through support from the Ontario’s  Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport’s “Celebrate Ontario” programme.Image

As part of our inaugural festival the TWG Gallery is staging “Brave Art”. We are still looking for a few more artists to participate in a solo or group presentation of their work for periods within July and August. Our only rule is “NO PICTURES OF MUSKOKA CHAIRS, LOONS OR THE SEGWUN STEAMSHIP”.  We’ll consider all media and genres…as long as it fits in the door. We can also present outdoor works. 

“Brave Art” reflects the age old question “What is art?” as  discussed in our Muskoka Theatre Project’s presentation of the new comedy “The Audit”, playing here in Rosseau July 8 – 19th.

The TWG Gallery opened last summer and is operated by the Rosseau Culture and Arts Project, a non–profit organization that promotes art and cultural activity and events in the Village of Rosseau.

Interested artists please submit an email with a link to your work:     gallery@rosseaucultureandarts.com

Looking forward to a great season ahead.

Celebrate Destination Rosseau! Coming Summer 2014! Art, Music, Theatre & Film

Image

Even though the ice is still out there on the lake and snow surrounds us, it’s time to think summer! As executive director of the non-profit Rosseau Culture and Arts Project,  I am proud to announce the first annual  “Destination Rosseau”, a celebration of music, theatre, film and art.  Years in the making, this brings together The Muskoka Theatre Project, The TWG Gallery, The new Muskoka Film Festival and The Rosseau Academy of Arts and Practical Science all under one umbrella.

Through generous support from the Ontario Government’s Celebrate Ontario 2014 grant programme, sponsorship, the Municipality of Seguin Township, volunteers and others, Rosseau is well on its way to becoming an arts destination.

Our playhouse…a spiced up Agricultural Hall!

It was here in Rosseau, back in 2002, that the Muskoka Theatre Project began to produce live theatre and musical concerts beginning with its original, award-winning, one-woman show “Quiet! I’m Talking” (soon to become a feature film “The Grass Widow of Muskoka”).  Since then we consistently presented quality professional theatre up until 2010. This year we return with a presentation of “The Audit” a new romantic comedy plus other productions and musical events.

The TWG Gallery, now in its second year, will be presenting several shows of local and regional artists under the banner “Brave New Art” along with our second annual “Paint the Town, Rosseau”.

ImageThe Rosseau Academy of Arts and Practical Science will be holding a series of workshops in arts, science and theatre for  kids and various media for adults throughout the summer.

Finally, over three days in September, “Destination Rosseau” will feature The Muskoka Film Festival, in three venues featuring not only great flicks but in many cases the filmmakers themselves.

Our final schedule of events is being finalized and new things are being added. In the meantime, keep visiting www.rosseaucultureandarts.com for details.

Also, WE ARE LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS with all our activities including the theatre, the workshops and the film festival. If you are interested in helping out please drop us a line and tell us your area of interest and availability. We’ll get back to you ASAP.    info@rosseaucultureandarts.com

Bring on the summer!
