8 Rooms

Shirley Brown, Barb Flemington, Seema Goel, Heather Komus, Anita Lebeau, Suzie Smith, Reva Stone and Diana Thorneycroft

November 18, 2022 – January 27, 2023

Anita Lebeau dreams a lot about rooms.
Ones that are “new” – that feel like undiscovered places, and yet familiar. She finds her dreams , and things within it, compelling, and it inspired her to do a project around the sensation of dreaming. For this project she collaborated with seven other artists to create dreamscapes for her animated characters to explore. Her desire was for the characters to enter these spaces in the same way she enters her dreams: with surprise and curiosity.
“8 Rooms” is comprised of a collective of artists from rural Southwestern Manitoba and Winnipeg. Each diorama is a dreamscape representative of each artist’s individual practise. The only set conditions each artist were provided were scale/size and that each room needed an entry and exit, with even the latter becoming a matter of artistic interpretation. The goal was to give each artist enough “creative room” to bring their expertise and research interests to the project. Anita visited the studio of each artist to discuss the approach and to learn more about each artists practice which in turn lent to the final animation.



Maker Space Residency

Emily Ellis

November 18, 2022 – January 27, 2023

I began working as an independent filmmaker in 2018. Since then, my short films have been selected and screened in a number of festivals as close to home as Halifax, Nova Scotia, and as far away as Barcelona, Spain.

In 2019, I graduated from Acadia University, winning the Dr. A. H. Maclean Prize for Best Honours Thesis for my project “More than Meets the Eye: Nonconformist Art during the Khrushchev Thaw.”

Following that, I studied at the University of Glasgow, where I earned my Master’s degree in Filmmaking & Media Arts, graduating with distinction and the Edinburgh University Prize for Best Dissertation for my project “Sometimes Nothing is Heaviest.”

In recent times, I have been busy learning how to live outside of an academic setting, applied for a grant with the Canada Council for the Arts, was awarded said grant, stumbled through the obstacle course of professional development that comes with being the director of a funded project, turned 25 years old (Hollywood’s most romantic age) and have been making the most of it by continuing to quit my day jobs for sport in the name of art.

Submission Procedures

The EAGM welcomes proposals from artists and curators in all media for exhibitions or special projects for 2020 and onward. The gallery presents a diverse program of exhibitions, lectures and meetings with artists, and is involved in the production of curated exhibitions connected to themes developed by the EAGM. Together, the programs propose a critical reflection on contemporary art and culture. The gallery offers three exhibition spaces for artist proposals, and welcomes submissions from curators and artists on an ongoing basis.

​The gallery has two exhibition spaces (Gallery I and Gallery II). The EAGM provides professional technical services for selected projects. The EAGM pays fees to artists and curators in accordance with CARFAC standards. Submitted projects are assessed and recommended for program inclusion by the curator. Please note that unless requested, we do not notify artists when a proposal has been received, and it can take some time for a decision to be made. Artists are always notified as to whether their submission has been selected for exhibition. Please note that our schedule is currently full for the near future, although we are happy to receive proposals to keep on file for future consideration.
