This Week In Gastown

@Kit & Ace
Saturday February 24
10:00am

This Saturday at 10:00am join Kit & Ace in the re-opening of their first store and learn about what happens when we leave something behind to create the next best thing.

The Gastown Community Exchange invites the first 100 community participants to bring a singular item of sentimental value representing something they have had to leave behind in order to create their next best thing.

Through this exchange they will share their item and story with Kit and Ace to become part of a interactive exhibit and window display. In exchange we will be gifting them one pair of pants on us!

Ningiukulu Teevee has become one of the most well-known and recognizable of the Cape Dorset graphic artists. Many collectors know that her work is always inventive and often mischievous, peppered with hidden figures, visual puns and reflections of her humorous take on the world. She is well versed in Inuit legends and traditional stories, and her work often features figures from these stories including the sea goddess Sedna (Nuliajuaq), Owl and Raven, Fox Woman and others.
