Mon-Sun, September 1-August 23, 2015, | ARTIST IN RESIDENCE PROGRAM Kent Harrison Arts Council is a not-for-profit organization, nurturing and supporting local arts and culture in the region for over 40 years. The arts council operates the Ranger Station Art Gallery in Harrison Hot Springs, BC and is supported by the BC Arts Council.

The annual residency provides an unfurnished two-bedroom suite with adjoining studio space on the second floor of the Ranger Station Art Gallery. In exchange for this space the Artist in Residence will be expected to devote an average of ten hours per week to the operation of the Arts Council and the Ranger Station Art Gallery. The majority of this time will be spent working in the gallery on Saturdays, Sundays and holiday Mondays from 1-5pm. The Artist in Residence will also present an annual art exhibit of their work in June and organize two public outreach programs or workshops. Artist in residence is responsible for monthly utility costs of residence and studio. Please refer to the artist in residence job description for specific duties and responsibilities at
www.kentharrisonartscouncil.com

This residency is ideally suited to visual artists and writers, although all artists are encouraged to contact us about their interests. If an inspirational natural setting, public art gallery work experience and self-directed, independent studio practice is of interest to you.

Fri-Mon, February 20-May 16, 2016, 11-6 Tues-Sat | LIVING WITH GLASS For well over five centuries, glass from the island of Murano, Italy has been desired by collectors of all persuasions, from leading scholars to day-trip tourists. The extraordinary skill of Murano’s glassmakers is indisputable. Veritable magicians, they transform cold material into explosions of light and color, encapsulated through the centuries in vases, sculptures, chandeliers, and tableware.

Fri-Mon, May 1-November 30, 2015, various times | INDIGENOUS EMERGING ARTIST PROGRAM Building on the success of last year’s Open Space Indigenous Youth Artist Showcase Group, we are currently planning the 2015 Indigenous Emerging Artists Program. Young artists will be offered the opportunity to explore interdisciplinary practices, including the many facets of media arts: video art, sound art, digital arts, etc. This free, hands-on program will encourage Aboriginal youth to tell their stories while benefiting from the guidance of established artists/mentors such as Jackson 2Bears, Peter Morin, Janet Rogers, Doug Jarvis, and Curator-in-Residence France Trépanier. They will also have access to experienced technicians and all necessary equipment, thanks to a partnership with MediaNet.

The Indigenous Emerging Artists Program is designed for Indigenous youth (First Nations, Inuit, or Métis) age 15 to 30 interested in developing their art, exploring new media, and producing exciting work. Participants will meet every second week for workshops, field trips and artist talks. The program will run from May to November 2015, resulting in a public presentation and discussion. For more information please contact Open Space at 250.383.8833.

Fri-Sun, May 15-August 2, 2015, | CAN YOU MAKE A PET OF HIM LIKE A BIRD OR PUT HIM ON A LEASH FOR YOUR GIRLS?
Exhibition at Western Front
Gallery Hours: Tues-Sat, 12-5pm

Visual and performance artist Rana Hamadeh develops research projects that think through systems of justice, militarism, histories of sanitation, and theatre. Hamadeh’s exhibition will present two complementary sketches of her new opera-under-development, manifesting as both a live performance and a gallery exhibition. Expanding on her recent eight-channel sound play, Can You Pull in an Actor with a Fishhook or Tie Down His Tongue With a Rope? (2014), the work takes the Shi’ite ceremony of Ashura as its main material. Decoding, then re-ordering and re-choreographing the ceremony’s theatrical components, Hamadeh uses histories of power in Syria and Lebanon as a starting point to examine militant theatre, military institutions and capital. The gallery exhibition will serve as a proposal for the future opera’s scenography, extracting textual elements from the play and re-casting them as a theatre set without actors.

Wed-Tues, June 3-August 4, 2015, | YUE BAOYU AT DISTRICT LIBRARY GALLERY North Vancouver Community Arts Council presents
Yue Baoyu
June 3 – August 4, 2015
Opening Reception: Saturday, June 6, 2:00pm – 4:00pm
With an emphasis on the surreal versus the real; solid versus mysterious, Yue Baoyu’s paintings encapsulate many themes. Her paintings are made up of mostly realist figurative elements, creating portraits with intriguing multi-element backgrounds. The fragmented perspective aims to invite multiple interpretations.

Yue Baoyu is a realist and representational painter. She combines modern and postmodern concepts to create images inspired by both the Eastern and Western art languages. Elements of Renaissance and Chinese ancient scrolls, abstract, surrealist and symbolic elements, digital influence and micro-macro transformations are seen in her work.

Yue Baoyu graduated from the Fine Art programme at Nova Scotia College of Art & Design in 2014.

Thur-Fri, June 4-July 31, 2015, | THROUGH A WINDOW: VISUAL ART AND SFU 1965-2015 SFU Gallery, JUN 3 – JUL 31, 2015
Audain Gallery, JUN 3 – AUG 1, 2015
Teck Gallery, JUN 3 – APR 30, 2016

Through a Window looks at visual art production at SFU since 1965. Literally considering the window at each of SFU’s campuses as a social, spatial and material symbol, the exhibition takes up Henri Lefebvre’s Rhythmanalysis (1992), particularly the chapter “Seen from the Window,” as a framework for reflecting on the rhythms of the past fifty years. The polyrhythms within aesthetics, theory, pedagogy, technology and politics inform the movement of artists’ through the classroom, the studio, the gallery and the city – locally and internationally, in linear and cyclical, continuous and punctuated circuits.
