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.

Mark Ollinger

Artist Talk
Tuesday September 29, 12:15 – 12:45
City Atrium Gallery
Please Join Mark as he shares his inspiration behind his sculptural work!
In Perceptually Uniform, Mark has played with the concept that in our world, there is an underlying, over-reaching fabric that makes everything that we interact with in our physical environment.
“The fabric must be made of something deeper. It is this “something” that I have striven to capture within these works.”

From Palate to Palette – The Contemporary Food Still Life

From Palate to Palette – The Contemporary Food Still Life is an exhibit of food and kitchen object-themed still-life paintings inspired by contemporary hyper-realism. It seeks to explore the intersection of food and art in our lives.

“From the obesity epidemic to the slow-food movement, our fascination and concern with what is on our plates seems never ending…amidst all this, enter food themed paintings. They can convey a passion for the simple pleasure of the table or tell powerful narratives that attempt to address our concerns,” - Lorn Curry.
