OCAD University mourns the passing of Frances Gage

Monday, December 4, 2017

Prolific sculptor, WWII veteran and OCA alumna Frances Marie Gage passed away on Sunday, November 26, in her 94th year.

Born in 1924 in Windsor, Ontario, Gage lived a remarkable life, serving in the intelligence service of the Women's Royal Canadian Naval Service (Wrens) during World War II before studying sculpture at OCA, the Art Students League of New York and L'Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. For two years she worked in what was once Tom Thomson’s “shack,” a toolshed in Toronto’s Rosedale Valley ravine.

Gage’s life story is told in the biography, Unlikely Paradise - The Life of Frances Gage by Alan D. Butcher.

A celebration of her life will be held on Saturday, December 9, 2017 from 1 to 4 p.m. with tributes and remembrances at 1:30 p.m. in the MacCoubrey Funeral Home Reception Centre, Cobourg.

Come Up To My Room - The Gladstone Hotel

Thursday, January 18, 2018 - 10:00am to Sunday, January 21, 2018 - 3:00pm

Congratulations to our current Interdisciplinary Master's in Art, Media and Design MDes student Katrina Tompkins, IAMD alumni Ashley Snook (MFA 2016) and Digital Futures alumni Jordan Shaw (MFA 2017) who will be showcasing their work at the Gladstone Hotel's upcoming event "Come Up To My Room".

"Come Up To My Room (#CUTMR) is an alternative design exhibition that provides a platform for experimentation outside the norms of art and design, at the edges between intention and interpretation. Freed from the constraints of traditional practice, CUTMR encourages spatial exploration that engages our senses, our memories and our perceptions of reality. The exhibition challenges participants to push their everyday practice by offering a blank canvas upon which to explore new themes and ways of working. Framed within the backdrop of the historic 128-year-old Gladstone Hotel, CUTMR invites artists and designers to create site-specific, immersive installations that stimulate the imagination and encourage discussion and dialogue between contributors and visitors alike."
