Lake Nipissing sits at the heart of our communities and becomes an accessible site for a short period of time in winter. A canvas as tranquil as it is volatile, the works are placed in direct harmony with light, water, wind, ice and snow. Ice Follies is an ad-hoc collective that presents a biennial festival of contemporary and community engaged art on frozen lake Nipissing. Audiences are invited to engage with works situated off shore from the North Bay waterfront and along the shores of Nipissing First Nation.
This year, we will be presenting work from artists from across the country including Reese Terris (Vancouver, BC), Aylan Couchie (Toronto/Nipissing FN), Chris Kosloski & Andrew Ackerman (North Bay, ON), and more.
Opening reception will be Friday, February 9th, at 5:30 off Marathon Beach (Memorial Drive) including a performance by Aanmitaagzi Storytellers (Nipissing FN). Warm refreshments will be served.
This event is FREE to the public. For a full list of events and artists please visit icefollies.ca
