Art Social: Witches of Van

The word “Witch” elicits many opinions and visual references often inspired by old folk tales, Hollywood depictions, and tainted historical events. But what does it mean to be a Witch today?

Witches of Vancouver: Coming out of the Broom Closet” is a photo-documentary series by local photographer, Jessie Robertson Photography. Through interviews and portraits, eleven Vancouver based self-identified Witches speak candidly about their paths, and what it was like to come out of the ‘broom closet’ in a society that still often shutters at the word, “Witch”.

Showcase dates are October 25th, November 29th and December 20th from 7-9pm at Liquid Amber Tattoo & Art Collective’s, ART SOCIAL. (62 Powell St. Vancouver). View the photo exhibit and meet the Witches who are also bringing works of their own craft for sale, turning Liquid Amber into a witchy art gallery and artisan market.

Art Social is a FREE ongoing monthly event from 7-9pm on the last Friday of every month Hosted at Liquid Amber Tattoo & Art Collective. Immerse yourself into an evening of art and discover local Vancouver businesses all while enjoying a drink at the cash bar and exploring this tattoo studio turned art gallery.
