Directions to the project are here
Since its inception in 2008, FIELDWORK has been run by a team of artists (The Collective) that volunteer their time and energy to make FIELDWORK a vibrant and dynamic destination for the creation and experience of site-specific artwork in and around a field in eastern Ontario, close to the towns of Perth and Maberly.
FIELDWORK hosts work by local, national and international artists at various stages of their careers and invites the public to visit the field site to explore the artwork all year long. FIELDWORK also hosts workshops in collaboration with other organizations.
Each year's exhibition opens in May and the site is open for the public to explore, year-round, free of charge.
The Collective looks after the site, co-ordinates and promotes projects, shares administrative duties and makes joint curatorial decisions. From time to time the Collective members also create their own FIELDWORK installations.
The FIELDWORK Collective (Susie Osler, Chris Osler, Chris Gossett and Sheila Macdonald) welcomes proposals from interested artists and circulates a public Call for Proposals annually. Suggestions and proposals for events or workshops are also welcomed from the local community, schools and arts organizations that are interested in fostering connections, dialogue and creative action between people, art, and nature. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
