Art: FAAS 7: Kathleen (June 14-17). Coming back from a five-year long pandemic-imposed hiatus, the Galerie du Nouvel-Ontario’s (GNO) seventh Alternative Art Fair of Sudbury (Foire d’art alternatif de Sudbury, or FAAS) is coming back in full force. A fixture of the city’s art scene since 2008, this biennial festival invites artists working in all kinds of disciplines (painting, sculpture, installation, performance, etc.) to create new works, inspired by that year’s chosen location and theme. This year’s festival will be bringing life to the Donovan. With this year’s theme of “Neighbourhood,” artists will engage with the diverse ethnocultural communities and marginalized populations who call the area home while celebrating their considerable contribution to the city and inviting the public to be in solidarity with them in the face of the considerable changes and challenges the area faces.
