DrawIngs by William Ramage
Bill Ramage’s work for the last thirty years has addressed questions about perception and the thought mechanism that codifies the act of seeing. At first the drawings were soley empirical, originating in or based on observation of experience. They evolved into drawing in situ installations (including The Fleming Museum Piece) that explored a system he called The Cetripetal. The last phase involves a pursuit of a mental mechanism that determines what the seeing will mean and how it will be applied. He affectionately refers to this mechanism as the Neur-alchemist. The drawings in the Flynndog show represent the dialogue generated by this pursuit. Read more about Bill

Freedom in Creation
presents an exhibition of work by northern Uganda’s children
Freedom in Creation is a community-led, arts-based psychosocial, education and water-development program aimed at empowering war affected children in Northern Uganda while celebrating the role of the arts within humanitarianism. FIC addresses the socialization and reintegration of children (non- and ex-combatants) into their communities and access to clean and safe drinking water. Following a simple process, the children, through their creative power, are able to bring access to fresh drinking water to their communities and consequently feel both empowered and valued as stakeholders in the process.
