For me, the Agnes is an anchor institution in our community. In addition to hosting interesting exhibitions, it’s also been instrumental in my development as an arts professional. The Agnes has so many assets: a vast historical collection, contemporary works of art by Canadian and international artists, learning spaces and passionate staff. This summer, they are have a strong roster of exhibitions on display. ‘Any Saint’ by artist and Queen’s Film & Media professor Emily Pelstring is a standout for me. If I could hang out in that exhibition space daily, I would!
