The Nanaimo Art Gallery is forwarding the conversation around reconciliation through art.
The gallery hosts Explore and Create, which includes a tour of the latest exhibition Awi’nagwiskasu: Real Land by artist Marianne Nicolson, a discussion about how Nicolson’s artwork explores intersections of language, culture and land and a mixed-media art session.
The mixed media portion of the event will be held in the gallery’s Art Lab and participants will be able to create artwork inspired by their own experiences and information collected from the group discussion.
The session is led by Arlene Deptuck, the gallery’s indigenous education coordinator, and Yvonne Vander Kooi, art education coordinator.
The session is Saturday (April 29) from 1:30-4:30 p.m.
Registration is $40 for members and $45 for non-members. To register, please call 250-754-1750.
