WATERWORKS

CURATED ART EXHIBITION | OCTOBER 13 to 23

SEASIDE CENTRE - 5790 TEREDO ST.

WATER. In all cultures, water has a place of respect and wonder. We drink it to replenish our bodies. We bathe in it to clean ourselves. We meditate beside it, swim through it, watch as it powers the growth of our food. Our survival depends on access to clean water. On the west coast, we are blessed with an abundance of fresh water, but it is not always accessible.

WITNESS AS OVER TWO DOZEN COAST ARTISTS EXAMINE THE SACREDNESS OF FRESH WATER, ITS ABUNDANCE, ITS BEAUTY, EXAMINE ITS SUSTAINABILITY & LOOK AT THE MULTIPLE WAYS WE REVERE AND RESPECT THIS PRECIOUS RESOURCE.

Featured artists include: FIBRE ARTISTS Deb Dumka, Kim Fenton, Kerri Luciani and Yvonne Stowell, PAINTER Diego Samper VIRTUAL REALITY ARTIST Matthew Talbot-Kelly, Multi-disciplinary ARTIST Kristjana Gunnars, GLASS ARTIST Miyuki Shinkai and CERAMIC ARTIST Kenny Torrance.

Curated by international artist Gordon Halloran.

OCTOBER 14 TO 23. Location #101 on the Art Crawl Tour October 21, 22, 23
