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.

April 8 – June 2, 2015Opening Reception: Saturday, April 11, 2:00pm – 4:00pm
District Library Gallery
Lynn Valley Main Library, 1277 Lynn Valley Road, North Vancouver
Bringing together elements of emotion, introspection and reflection, Sibéal’s paintings deal with themes of emigration, the fragility of our environment, and the transitional and reflective symbol of water. Weaving together stories based on personal experiences, Sibéal melds formal painting concerns with a flair for colour, exuberant compositions and imagination.
Sibéal is an artist and educator who has lived on the North Shore since 1987. Born and raised in Ireland, she comes from a rich tradition of oral history and storytelling. Her work investigates many aspects of life but is primarily inspired by events that impact her family and community on a local and global level.

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.
