The drawings in the Drift collection evoke the human anatomy—overlapping tissues that resist the process of decay. Each piece is centered on a white, unadorned background so that other media do not overshadow the driftwood’s strength. The focus on the wood insists on direct acknowledgment of the ideas of aging and degeneration, processes our culture frequently avoids. In this way, Drift offers an homage to age; it marks a refusal to allow the elderly or the process of aging to drift away into obscurity. Harvey’s driftwood drawings celebrate growing old; the pieces are like the gifts her father gave her at the end of his life.
Opening Reception: Wednesday, September 20, 6–8 p.m.
Working with Heart, Storytelling, and Art Workshop: Sunday, October 1, 2–4 p.m. (more information on our website)
"Reflecting on Home" seeks to honour the history of the land upon which the Ferry Building Gallery stands – the ancestral and unceded territories of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish Nation), səl̓ílwətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh Nation), and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam Nation) who have safeguarded these lands since time immemorial. All participating artists will delve into their individual interpretations of home.
Come join us for an evening of storytelling, laughter (and maybe even a cringy moment, or a tear or two) with emerging local writers from the awfully hilarious project and The Mom Babes.
awfully hilarious: stories we never tell became a best-seller overnight when it launched its collection of cringey dating stories and taboo bodily-fluid moments on Valentine’s Day this past year, and The Mom Babes now have their 3rd volume out on shelves (their 2nd volume won the Canadian Book Club Award in the short story/anthology genre).
Join in the fun on Thursday, September 21. Can’t wait to see you!
Squamish Arts acknowledges that the land on which we live, work and recreate is the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples, particularly the territories of the Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation. It is our responsibility to honour their ancestry by being an ally to the present.
