ARTISTS CELEBRATE TROPICANA COMMUNITY SERVICES FOR A QUARTER CENTURY OF COMMUNITY SERVICE WITH A COMPELLING EXHIBITION AT THE ASHANTI ROOM JULY 15 TO JULY 30
Tropicana Community Services will be honoured with an exhibition entitled “Much Silence Makes a Loud Noise” presented by the Six Ah Wi Artist Collective and made possible because of the generous support of the Ontario Arts Council. The community is invited to enjoy a free exhibition at the Ashanti Room, located at 836 Bloor St. West (a block and a half east of Ossington). The exhibition will open on July 15 at 7pm.
Tropicana Community Services is being recognized because it has become a beacon for the Caribbean and Black communities, harnessing the creative energies, talents, and resources of the community to enhance lives and build better communities. The exhibition will feature portraiture work celebrating Toronto’s diversity.
This event is also the inaugural exhibition by the Six Ah Wi Artist Collective. The artists in the collective are Sonja Farquharson-Jeans, Michael Gibson, Michelle Montague, and Ato Seitu. Six Ah Wi is committed to exposing new audiences to visual art through innovative and compelling exhibitions
and collaborations. The collective is based on six principles that promote growth and renewal.
