What’s New at Quest Art?

Seeking Artists for LGBTQ+ Zine!

As June 2021 has come to a close, we wish to emphasize that this idea of ‘pride’ extends beyond the month, and LGBTQ+ artists continue to push the boundaries of their works across a variety of media forms year-round. Following our Continuum: Featured Artists exhibition we wanted to create a platform for other LGBTQ+ artists to come forward and submit their work for a special edition of our zine. We are prioritizing submissions of poetry, prose, and art that addresses the topics of pride and queer identities but our submissions are open to any medium and any subject matter.

Meet the Artist: Ash Randell- Colalillo

Quest Art School + Gallery is thrilled to continue our new initiative ‘Meet the Artist’. This is an ongoing video series, which will highlight the talent of local artists!

Ash Randall-Colalillo is a queer emerging interdisciplinary artist based in Tkaronto/Toronto, Ontario currently studying at OCAD University. Ash also is a member of Mudcat Collective, an artist collective established in 2020 with OCADU alumni. The mediums used within her art practice is: performance, sculpture/installation, video and drawing/painting. Ash’s work acts as a window to invite viewers to look out into a new perspective of space that exists around us as well as within us. It represents a study of the self that reflects a transitional relationship of universal experience.

This is a special session featuring one of our artists from our Virtual pride exhibition, which you can see here: https://artspaces.kunstmatrix.com/en/exhibition/6985895/continuum-featured-artists
