Inuit Gallery: New Collection
Water and Light – Jennifer Walden

March 25 – April 14

Jennifer has long studied the play of light in the scenes of the North she illustrates, using a textured surface on her canvases to capture the depth of her environment and spotlight the wildlife she depicts. This collection includes works that explore the experience of observing the refraction of light in addition to the visual perception.  A number of landscapes, as well, pay homage to the breathtaking landscapes surrounding her home in Yellowknife as they change from sunshine to snow – as she says, this collection is ‘an exploration of light reacting with water in its various forms’.

All works are available immediately.

Guilt & Co.

Fri. March 31, 2017

Pay-What-You-Can

Camaro 67 brings together classic Afrobeat influences (Fela Kuti, Tony Allen), and modern Afrofunk / Groove sounds (Antibalas, Budos Band, The Herbaliser) to produce a propulsive, highenergy, made-in-Vancouver heavy funk experience. This explosive 10-piece instrumental group debuted in the fall of 2015, picking up from where Miami Device (BC’s premier Afrobeat orchestra since 2007) left off.
