Sheldon Louis: Nkw’qm’ast – Deep Water, 2017, acrylic on canvas, 48 x 48 in
Sheldon Louis’ exhibition of paintings tells the story of the Columbia River stewardship in not so distant history and its impact on the First Nations’ traditional fish harvesting sights, culturally important gathering places and trade. As Louis points out in his statement, “This exhibition is a revisioning of the old stories; it speaks of the need to understand the relevance of the First Nations’ perspective in today’s ever growing industrial complex”.
Join us for the opening reception on Thursday, July 27th from 6 p.m – 8 p.m at the Vernon Public Art Gallery.
An Artist Talk and presentation with Sheldon will take place on Saturday, September 16th at 1 p.m at the gallery. Admission is by donation.
