Tues-Mon, April 12-July 11, 2016, 8:30am-5pm | ANN HAMM: SLIVERS OF SILVER - WOOD + FABRIC INSTALLATIONS Promo Copy:
The North Vancouver Community Arts Council proudly presents the installation works of Ann Hamm at the City Atrium Gallery--141 West 14th Ave. North Vancouver, BC

“I was fortunate to grow up on a farm in South Africa. Living on the land that sustained us taught me to respect nature as a living ecosystem where nothing was ever wasted. My art is a passionate response to observing the order and logic that surrounded me as a child. My intention as an environmental artist is to raise public awareness of the beautiful symbiotic relationships that surround us.
From my earliest memories I have been making beautiful things with whatever medium or tools that come to hand.” -Ann Hamm

Join Ann for an Artist Talk on Tuesday April 26th from 12:15-12:45pm to learn more about the inspiration behind the three displayed works, 'Howe Sound', Return of the Salmon', and 'Red Alder River'.
