p.43: Welland’s newest downtown gallery

No, this is not deja vu. Just 5 months after The Hard Way completed their run at 43 Hellems Ave., p.43 (Project Forty Three), a gallery of contemporary art, has opened in the same space with two events already booked.

The work of Jacob Wren went on display last week. Having taught workshops in (literally) every corner of the world, he is known for his art in several mediums.

Wren’s performances, made collaboratively with other artists, engage with the struggle and paradox of ‘being oneself’ in a performance situation, with what it means to stand in front of an audience and speak honestly about the things one finds important, at the same time never afraid to show how vulnerable and nervous one might naturally feel in such a situation. He also works as co-artistic director of the Montreal-based interdisciplinary group PME-AR, where he co-creates performances.

In addition, p.43 will host artist Mathew Vizbulis’ solo mural project, graffuturism, that will be visible to the street from Jan. 16-31. A reception will be held at p.43 on Thursday, Jan. 15 at 6:30.
