CUAG opens new exhibition with an eye on its 25th anniversary

The Carleton University Art Gallery (CUAG) unveiled its new exhibition, Open Edition, curated by Heather Anderson and Sandra Dyck with special help from Diana Hiebert, on June 5.

Open Edition focuses largely on prints from several featured Canadian artists, as well as an array of older prints within the collection. “We chose to focus on the collection to celebrate because the collection majorly  defines what the gallery is. And printmaking has always been a big part of the collection from the earliest days—before there was a gallery,” Anderson said. CUAG has a known history for printmaking.

Letter: RRRA electoral process needs change

The Rideau River Residence Association (RRRA) continues to fail the electorate, and embarrass the Carleton community as a whole. Over the course of three months, students have been able to witness the shady underbelly of the organization firsthand, and they have expressed the need for change.

This was after the team was given a mere three hours to provide an appeal, a direct contravention of standard appeals procedure. The Constitutional Board, which is chaired by Zophia Brobio, then-vice-president (programming), ruled in favour of the electoral office. With a final appeal available to them through the RRRA council, […]
