Alice Williams and Brad Copping

Location: King George Public School (220 Hunter St. E, Peterborough)

Anishinaabe artist Alice Williams (Curve Lake First Nation) and glass and sculpture artist Brad Copping have created an immersive installation of blown glass, textile, sound, and projection. The vibrant greens of springtime frame envelop the ceiling, light catches a cascade of glass droplets suspended in their fall towards blown vessels full of water, atop quilted medicine wheels. The sound of rain through trees plays as voices speak the names of water in its various forms in Anishinaabemowin and English.

By bringing the outside in to this space originally constructed for educating the next generation acknowledges the long tradition of King George Public School’s work to provide specialized environmental and nature-based programs and the intention of Erring itself, bringing unoccupied spaces to life.

Alice Williams is an Anishinaabe artist (Curve Lake First Nation) who holds a BA from Trent University. Her quilts and wall-hangings have been exhibited at the National Museum of the American Indian (the Smithsonian), Michigan State University, Thunder Bay Art Gallery, Wanuskewin Heritage Park and the Art Gallery of Peterborough.

Brad Copping is a sculptor and functional glass blower whose work has been exhibited broadly. He has been reviewed in the New Glass Review, received support from the Canada Council and Ontario Arts Council, and is in the permanent collection of many museums, including the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.
