Photography is central to Creates’ practice, not only in documenting her temporary landworks but also as an arena in which ideas are performed; where seeing it itself an act of interrogation.
Inspired by her interest in hidden histories and remembering place, Ottawa-based photographer Christine Fitzgerald will offer a unique in situ photography demonstration of her wet collodion photographic process, originally pioneered in the mid-1800s.

We will walk to the Carbide Willson Ruins in Gatineau Park to capture this abandoned stone building and dam, which once powered a century-old research facility. Christine uses an antiquated and labour intensive process, involving the use of metal or glass plates made chemically sensitive to light minutes before use and placed in a modified old film sheet holder that she places behind her large box camera. By using this 19th century process, the past and the present co-exist in her images.

Christine Fitzgerald is a photographer from Ottawa, Canada. Christine has degrees from Acadia and Dalhousie Universities, and studied at the School of the Photographic Arts: Ottawa. In 2017, Christine was one of 15 visual artists selected for the epic CanadaC3 Expedition on the occasion of Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation. Her work has been showcased in exhibits around the world, and has been featured by the CBC, The Washington Post, National Geographic, Black+White Photography Magazine UK, PhotoEd Magazine, amongst others.

All About Trees Walk

Saturday, 22 June 2019, 10:00 a.m.

All about trees! On Location: Human Interventions in the Landscape features photographs from Ottawa-based artist Lorraine Gilbert’s series “Shaping the New Forest 1988-1994, Part 1: The Landscapes.” Join Lorraine Gilbert for an artist talk that will address her experience as a tree planter in British Columbia and her view of silviculture (the growing and cultivation of trees) practices.
After viewing the exhibition at CUAG, we will walk across the Rideau Canal to the Arboretum for a Tree Identification 101 walk with guide Ken Farr. This magnificent collection of trees and shrubs covers about 35 hectares (86 acres) of rolling land. More than 2,000 varieties have been adapted to the region, some dating back to the first plantings in 1889.

Ken Farr is Manager, Science Integration at NRCan. He has been active in the Arboretum for over twenty years, including for production of Canadian Forest Service publications such as Trees in Canada (several of the tree photos in that text were taken in the Arboretum) and more recently, for photographic content in the CFS mobile phone app MyTree. Additionally, he taught horticulture and arboriculture at Algonquin College for twelve years and the Arboretum was the primary teaching site.

Lorraine Gilbert is a renowned landscape photographer. Her interest in the cultural aspect of landscape photography is reflected in her most recent panoramic digital photographs which often demonstrate the gap between our technological-savvy culture and wild nature. A member of the Royal Academy of Canadian Arts, she has won numerous awards throughout her career, including the first Yousuf and Malak Karsh Award in 2003. She is currently Chair, Associate Professor in the Department of Visual Arts at the University of Ottawa.
