Turning the Lens with Guest Artist aj Jaeger E013

November 15, 2021

Artists as patrons and wise women wayfinders.

Michelle and aj Jaeger discuss the hidden lens of community work on this revealing and honest episode of AR:T ROUTE Radio.  The space between the arts and community infrastructure systems is historically difficult to be made visible in civic budgets.   A discussion how community art education is needed to reveal the value of the social economics of community art civic infrastructure work. The two successful artists touch how artists need to have a multitude of skills in the their art tool belts.

 

Artist aj Jaeger ... as a sculptor and painter, I am inspired by rich colours and distinctive textures that tell a meaningful story. I am a passionate advocate in the local art community, teaching mixed media, working with collage in inventive, creative ways in my workshops, and designing successful art exhibitions.

Taking it to the Wall with Guest Artist Kerri Parnell E012

Taking it to the Wall with Guest Artist Kerri Parnell E012

November 8, 2021

Life doesn’t define you by what happens to you - you’re defined by how you choose to deal with what happens to you.  This episode of AR:T ROUTE Radio is one that strikes not only an artistic cord, but also a cultural cord with my family roots. Art is a powerful tool to disrupt and to educate on extremely important social issues. Time is stopped when you listen to Kerri and her art is a window to a time that sits on both sides of the window you look through when experiencing her art - Artist Michelle Loughery.

 

Artist Kerri Pernell ... Her passion is to collaborate with others on projects that promote social awareness and change. Her results are both thought provoking and aesthetically beautiful. Nowhere is this more evident than Pause in Plight.

Nelson International Mural Festival with Guest Artist Sydney Black E011

Nelson International Mural Festival with Guest Artist Sydney Black E011

August 12, 2021

This episode of AR:T ROUTE RADIO has a ripple effect in the vibrant colours and artists on the walls and the connections between mural towns and the people who create them.   In the art studio is Sydney Leigh Black, one of the organisers of the extremely successful Nelson International Mural Festival. This mural town has deep roots and also strong ties to the work of Loughery’s students who are now some of the masters of their mural craft on the vibrant walls in Nelson BC, Canada. There is much energy that goes into the creation of mural towns and Sydney is a mural warrior in the work she does.

Sunflower Wisdom with Guest Artist Claudia Salguero E010

Sunflower Wisdom with Guest Artist Claudia Salguero E010

August 11, 2021

"When I first stumbled on the work that Claudia Salguero was creating, the sunflower she was creating drew me to reach out to her. Her story and her passion for engagement art and community is inspiring and a beautiful conversation to be part of. Claudia speaks from her soul about her work and it is like hundreds of butterflies are released onto her immense canvas." - AR:T ROUTE Radio Host and Master Muralist Michelle Loughery.

Connecting is what the sunflower does and art is the bridging love we can all share in. Search out the Wisdom Mural and Claudia’s work and help her raise the dollars to create more inspiring art.
 
Where is this mural?
In Ottawa, Ontario on 1365 Bank Street. Look WAY UP and find the sunflower!

 

“What is the WISDOM mural? It is a mural project I have been dreaming of since I understood the deepness of the Indigenous teachings in regards of their connection and respect for Mother Nature.  Indigenous teachings from all over the world invite us to connect with her in a conscious way, to see her as the source of life, to appreciate her unlimited gifts and to respect her.” -  Artist Claudia Salguero

Talking to the Sunflowers with Artist Jo Petty #006

Talking to the Sunflowers with Artist Jo Petty #006

July 6, 2021

Connecting with other creatives is a key part of a strong art practice.  During Covid times what is an artist’s haven and creative secluded heaven became a jail of lack of choices to connect. 

The mastery of creative skills does not help learn new digital skills. Remembering what being a student is like is a good reminder as we masters mentor and now need mentored in exchange. 

Digital connections proved to be a window into each other’s studios and a thread that ties us all together that has become the new digital zoom party line. And as always exchange is connection and a mastery of building each other up in hard times!

Take a listen as Host Artist Michelle Loughery and Guest Artist Jo Petty connect on AR:T ROUTE Radio ‘Talking to the Sunflowers’ party line. 

"My theme in life and art has always been "Every Mark Matters" and my goal is to impart the inspiration of that statement to every person I instruct and with whom I work.

Art is an energy that is alive and all around us. It comes through the artist or the medium and when a viewer acknowledges or responds to that energy it is one of the greatest rewards."  - Artist Jo Petty.

Jo Petty has had international shows in Tokyo, Bifuka and Sapporo.  Petty was also part of the team that painted a mural for the Hollywood feature film, An Unfinished Life.

Canadian Sunflowers - A Daughter’s Story with guest Anne Sadelain #005

Canadian Sunflowers - A Daughter’s Story with guest Anne Sadelain #005

February 24, 2021

Michelle Loughery spends time with Anne Sadelain of Edmonton, Alberta on AR:T ROUTE Radio. At 16, Anne Sadelain’s father lied about his age to get into Canada. Five years later, in 1915, he was picked up by police in Vancouver and brought to an internment camp in Morrissey, B.C.  Anne is one of the children of the camp survivors and her father; Vasyl (William) Doskoch was a Morrissey internee.

Anne speaks about her father's harsh treatment and what an impact it had on the family to have their father imprisoned in such an unjust fashion. She explains also that Vasyl was eventually moved to a camp at Kapuskasing in Northern Ontario when Morrissey was finally shut down. There he was forced to remain in what only can be described as deliberate post-war slave labour until he was finally released in 1920, 1-2 years after war's end.

Sadelain said, “My father committed no crime and posed no threat to the country. Instead, he was locked up because he was Ukrainian.”

Research and Immigrant Song music Andrea Malysh.

About Canada's first national internment operations.  "During Canada's first national internment operations of 1914 to 1920 thousands of men, women and children were branded as "enemy aliens." Many were imprisoned. Stripped of what little wealth they had, forced to do heavy labour in Canada's hinterlands, they were also disenfranchised and subjected to other state sanctioned censures not because of anything they had done but only because of where they had come from, who they were."

Quoted from “www.internmentcanada.ca”

Canadian War Museum - The Internment of Ukrainian Canadians. At the outset of war in August 1914, the Canadian government quickly enacted the federal War Measures Act (WMA). The Act’s sweeping powers permitted the government to suspend or limit civil liberties in the interest of Canada’s protection, including the right to incarcerate “enemy aliens”.

“Enemy Aliens” and Internment Operations

The term “enemy alien” referred to the citizens of states legally at war with Canada who resided in Canada during the war. Under the authority of the WMA, Canada interned 8,579 enemy aliens in 24 receiving stations and internment camps from 1914-1920. Otter classified 3,138 as prisoners of war, while the others were civilians. The majority of those interned were of Ukrainian descent, targeted because Ukraine was then split between Russia (an ally) and the Austro-Hungarian Empire, an enemy of the British Empire. In addition to those placed in camps, another 80,000 enemy aliens, again mostly Ukrainians, were forced to carry identity papers and to report regularly to local police offices.

The Sunflower Project Seeds of Hope with guest Lana O’Brien #004

The Sunflower Project Seeds of Hope with guest Lana O’Brien #004

January 27, 2021

At AR:T ROUTE Radio we tell untold stories. Important wall stories of history that remind us to not repeat past mistakes. "Art is a never ending story of humanity."  We all have a story that will break your heart, and by sharing and connecting to the past we can build a stronger future.  Join Master Artist Michelle Loughery and guest Lana O’Brien in episode #004 as they TAKE IT TO THE WALL ... 

Seeds of Hope:  A Story of Ukrainian Internment in Canada.

From 1914-1920 the field now known as MacDonald Park, and home to W.L. Seaton Secondary school, was an Internment Camp for Ukrainian and Eastern European citizens.  Our show tells the story of this little known history from three perspectives: those imprisoned, those responsible for the camps from local authorities to the Canadian Government, and the citizens of Vernon with their varying points of view.

The show was created by 12 Seaton students, under the direction of Lana O’Brien, over many weeks.  Using theatre, it tells both local stories and stories from across Canada in a beautiful live production that was professionally filmed and edited for sharing in a digital medium.

Like all theatres around the world, our theatre company has been significantly impacted by COVID-19, and the streaming will be by donation.

Lana O’Brien is a Teaching Artist - School District 22, Vernon BC,
Artistic and Technical Director - 27th Street Theatre Company, and Co-ordinator - Good Will Shakespeare Festival.
