RMG Fridays: Public Notice

October 05, 2018 from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM

This month check out Whitby-based band Wooly and Matt Gunn and join us in celebrating the opening of Public Notice.

Wooly is a notable Whitby-based song-writing band, made up of four unique, yet like-minded musicians: Amika Vie, Jonah Kissoon, Alex Tarsitano, and Chris Caceres. Wooly embodies more than just beautiful ideas; they undeniably fill the heart will raw, eclectic sound, evident in their writing process. Each member experiments as they see fit, tackling the metaphysical, existentialist issues of life and growth in a globalist society. Wooly's songs are sure to resonate in the minds of their listeners.

Born and raised in small town Ontario, Matt Gunn combines a mix of soul, motown, and reggae to prove to the world there is more to the country than just honky tonks and cowboy boots. Influenced by Van Morrison, Marvin Gaye, and The Slackers, Matt creates a blend of sounds to soothe even the pickiest of ear drums.

After returning from 6 months of performing and recording in Germany, Matt is currently in the studio recording his 2nd solo album (7th album overall). This new record titled “Staring at Nothing” gives a modern touch to a sound you forgot you loved.

Public Notice
Curated by Sonya Jones
Alison Humphrey, Ruth Cuthand, Elaine Whittaker, Ho Tam, Stephen Andrews, Abraham Anghik Ruben, Kim Morgan.

Public Notice looks at how fear affects our perception and treatment of disease. While inciting fear can may cause precautions, it also divides the healthy from the unhealthy, those who are willing to help from those who are not, and often fact from fiction.

The works in Public Notice deal with disease and illness and its impact historically and racially, look at loss and misunderstanding. While fear often trumps empathy and understanding, the works in this exhibition refuse to let fear have the last word.
