ARTspace in Chatham is presenting a series of whimsical new works celebrating the fall season.
Headlining is “Blood Ties” a new exhibition of assemblages and sculptures by artists Laurie Langford and Mike Ondrovcik, exploring the notion of kin.

Regional ceramicist Chris Snedden’s work is also on display as he celebrates Crowfest with a signature line of ceramics entitled “Echo of Crows.”
Both exhibitions open to the public on Oct. 12 at ARTspace.

An artist’s reception will be held on Oct. 14 at 7 p.m. This is a free, family-friendly event. All are welcome.
Respected members of the C-K art scene for many years, Langford and Ondrovcik, decided to team up in pursuit of a shared vision. Through the long months of pandemic isolation, they became keenly aware of their connection to family and the rich and complex influence it holds. In addition to providing a safe harbour through difficult times, family is also a source of personal identity that often finds its roots somewhere in the nebulous mysteries of memory and the gene pool.
Langford and Ondrovcik are recognized for their humour, curiosity, and ability to transform ordinary materials into flights of visual fancy. Assemblages or expressively sculpted forms characterize these artists’ works as they look to their family histories for inspiration.
Snedden is no newcomer to a fascination with the celebrated and mischievous black bird, the crow. His display “Echo of Crows” includes finely crafted plates, mugs, and teapots.
ARTspace is located at 165½ King St. W. in Chatham and is open from noon to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday. For more information, visit
