Don Maynard and Rebecca Soudant will present a short presentation on their current work, followed by talks in the exhibition, I hope humanity


I hope humanity features two local artists, Don Maynard and Rebecca Soudant. Each will present a short slide presentation on their current work, followed by talks in the exhibition on Smoke Signal #1 and A Tapestry of Birth.

Rebecca Soudant is an active Kingston-based artist who teaches Visual Arts at Smiths Falls Collegiate. She has worked in a range of media including paint, print, fabric and metal; for the last four years, embroidery has been the focus of her practice. She is currently working on a parenting tapestry and another that documents Kingston community gardens.

Recently re-located to Picton, Ontario, Don Maynard is working on two public art commissions: Wave for the City of Toronto and Stand of Birch for the Cyrville Station of the Ottawa Light Rail Transit Line. Previous public art works include Archive and Fallen Star for the City of Ottawa. The Agnes featured his solo exhibition, Franken Forest, in 2010. Maynard has upcoming exhibitions at the Art Gallery of Mississauga and at Newzones Gallery of Contemporary Art in Calgary.

Programs for I hope humanity… are supported by the Community Foundation for Kingston and Area.
