There is a marked shift in the light and weather now that September has rolled in. Many visitors have enjoyed discovering this year's installations at FIELDWORK over the summer and we hope many more will stop in this fall as well. There are 12 installations (5 new this year) by some innovative artists ready to experience. Where else can one explore innovative public art within a natural landscape in eastern Ontario?
Keep on the radar the Equinox Celebration Sunday, Sept. 22. 7pm at the Ear (in the middle of the field) (scroll down to see posting below for details).
Also the Perth Autumn Studio Tour held Thanksgiving weekend (October 12-14) is always another great time to come out. Fall colours, crisp autumn air, art in and around the field and 8 artists studios nearby are open to the public for the long weekend.
FIELDWORK is open to the public daily, all year and free of charge. Just park and walk. Directions click here
FIELDWORK began in the summer of 2008 with installations by the FIELDWORK Collective (Chris Osler, Chris Grosset, Erin Robertson, and Susie Osler). Our intent is to present imaginative, thought-provoking, art installations in a field in rural eastern Ontario and to provide the opportunity for artists to create work for an unusual and unique artspace. FIELDWORK hosts work by local, national and international artists at various stages of their careers and invites the public to visit the field site (free of charge) to explore the artwork year-round. We also host workshops in collaboration with other organizations.
More information on current and past installations can be found by scrolling down this page and/or by looking in the archives in the right hand menu. Be sure to also check out additional photos of the installations - found in the galleries located in the right hand menu. Directions to the site can be found here.
