Prismatic After Dark
featuring Jacques Mindreau & Andrew Jackson, Guyleigh Johnson, and Alan Syliboy
Mon, Oct 2 at 6:30pm
This evening will feature the work of four artists:
Andrew Jackson is a Juno Award winning trombonist and composer based in Halifax, Nova Scotia. His versatility and unique sound have made him one of the Maritimes first-call players. He is an artist constantly exploring new sounds and not afraid to blend genres.
Jacques Mindreau makes music for the soul and the human spirit. His solo project, Electro Jacques Therapy, uses violin and lyrical voice to combine fresh and sometimes haunting orchestral sounds into vocal and string loops. His passion in music is seen in not just his works but his performances. He currently resides in the North End of Halifax, NS / K’jipuktuk.
From North End Dartmouth, Guyleigh Johnson is a published author, spoken word artist, community advocate and arts facilitator with a passion for youth engagement, writing, and speaking about topics surrounding healing, leadership, and implementing changes in her community.
Established Mi’kmaq artist, Alan Syliboy’s work is influenced by the indigenous Mi’kmaq rock drawing and quill weaving traditions. Working in acrylic and mixed media, his art explores themes of family, searching, spirituality, struggle, and strength. His 2010 Film, Little Thunder, an animated collaboration between Syliboy, Director Nance Ackerman, and Animator Paton Francis has been screened at numerous Film Festivals, and received the Best Animation Film Award at the First Peoples Festival in Montreal.
