WCC is pleased to announce the return of this annual Juried Exhibition and we can’t wait to share the selected works with the public. Indigenous Art 2021 will be running September 11 – November 20, 2021.


Meet Artist, Ariel Williams

Ariel Williams is a contemporary Indigenous artist from Walpole Island First Nation (Bkejwanong Territory), who graduated in 2019 from the Fine Art program at Fanshawe College in London, Ontario, Canada. Williams, mainly works with acrylic paintings that are exploring the concept of creating surrealistic imagined, yet, familiar landscapes with hints of human presence within them. Works in series through varying scale, using non-naturalist colours, lines and/or monoliths, Williams, creates worlds that are atmospheric and intimate giving the viewer a sense of seclusion and allowing them to get lost within the almost ominous imagined landscape that she has created.
