The old Willie Dixon adage, “blues is truth,” perfectly describes the searing, contemporary blues-rock of world-renowned guitarist and vocalist Coco Montoya. Taught by the “Master of the Telecaster,” Albert Collins, but with a hard-edged sound and style all his own, Montoya mixes his forceful, melodic guitar playing and passionate vocals with memorable songs, delivering the blues’ hardest truths. He earned his status as a master guitarist and soul-powered vocalist through years of paying his dues as a sideman with Collins (first as a drummer) and then with John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, before launching his solo career in 1993.

Dr. Norman Yan completed his MSc and PhD dissertations on the effects of acid rain and metal pollution on Ontario lakes, then worked as a research scientist with the Ontario Ministry of the Environment for 25 years. In his capacity of Chair of the Friends of Muskoka Watershed, Dr. Yan will be speaking on:
Protecting our lakes forever: Moving from Rehabilitation to Prevention and the Friends of the Muskoka Watershed’s mission
We know that we can reverse past damage that our lakes have suffered. We’ve done it for acid rain and lead pollution and over-fertilization with phosphorus. But can we learn from this history to prevent the re-occurrence of old problems and emergence of new ones? Can we move from restoration to prevention? Norman Yan has been studying threats to our lakes for almost half a century and in this talk he will identify the key emerging threats to Muskoka lakes, and how they collectively increase the risk of algal blooms. He will then discuss how the Friends of the Muskoka Watershed is attempting to lead the effort to deal with these threats, so that we can protect the lakes we all love.

An ambitious series of paintings Allan Beckley began in 1999. Based on personal photographs of his travels across Canada and the United States, Allan has produced a painstakingly crafted series of high realist acrylic paintings depicting historical neon signage. Sometimes whimsical, sometimes derelict, sometimes even tragic, Allan’s selection of imagery gives us a rare and comprehensive view of the so-called vernacular design of North American, post-war culture as he documents its momentum toward extinction. Allan’s clarity of detail pays homage to neon signage as an unmistakable and lasting influence on contemporary lifestyle, architecture and design. “I hope the viewers will begin to appreciate the tube benders artistry in the paintings,” states Allan. “I expect most attendees will be fascinated by the impact that neon has played such an important role in shaping design trends, social mores and cultural movements for a hundred years. I’m recording a brief glimpse of our own history.”
A public reception for No Vacancy will be held on Saturday, November 23 from 1pm to 3pm at the Chapel Gallery. The exhibition continues at the Chapel Gallery until December 13.
