An exhibition of work by British Columbia based artists

And... marks the 150th Anniversary of Confederation of Canada, a solidifying moment in the history of this country. It is the conjunction of experience and a tale to which there is always another side. This exhibition serves to acknowledge familiar stories, and to welcome unfamiliar perspectives on a past more prosperous for others than it was for many. Featuring work by artists from across BC, this exhibition aspires to examine the accomplishments and the failures of the last 150 years and take stock of the present so that we might honour the foundations on which confederation was built by forging a stronger tomorrow.

January 19 - April 2 2017

Jeremy Herndl. Sticks and Cloth, 2016. Oil on Canvas.

Broken Paths

Tara Nicholson, Patrick Dunford, Jeremy Herndl and Susan Barton-Tait

The history of this land is a story of paths broken both by Indigenous people and settlers. From a contemporary viewpoint, this exhibition looks at human habitation marking points along pathways that ended in a home as often as failed aspirations. Evidence of these journeys dot the landscape as towns, structures and junk heaps. Through the work of Tara Nicholson, Patrick Dunford, Jeremy Herndl and Susan Barton-Tait, Broken Paths documents and reflects the intrepid spirit, the human need for shelter and its imprint on the world. 

March 9 - April 23, 2017

Erich Franz. Bull Trout, 2015. Graphite on paper.

Life Aquatic

Erich Franz

Life Aquatic is an exhibition of drawings that honour the meditative act of fly-fishing and tying. Erich Franz explains: “when undertaking these tasks one must adopt a certain rhythm – move too fast or too slow and it won’t work.” Finding this pace involves focus and repetition; once it is achieved Franz finds himself completely present in the moment, comfortably lost in the task at hand.

Carefully planned in advance, each drawing is developed using a mandala format and a detailed repeating pattern taking up to forty hours to complete. The imagery within the mandalas themselves draws from aquatic ecology, and from equipment specific to the world of fly-fishing and tying.

The level of commitment demanded by Franz’ drawing process is equal to his passion for fly-fishing and tying. Life Aquatic is an exhibition that embodies this passion, and speaks to the importance of taking time for ones self.
