The Sculptors’ Society of BC celebrated how traditional and contemporary sculptural practices intersect by exploring bronze, stone, wood, fibre, and mixed media. This exhibition featured the work of sculptors working in traditional themes derived from nature and portraiture, cross-pollinated with our modern understanding of molecular structure and engineering to create new forms.
Means of Production
June 9 – July 15
Amanda McCavour, Lucy Poskitt, Michelle Sirois Silver, Stephanie Symns and Amanda Wood
Through weaving, rug hooking and stitching, five textile artists explored the value, meaning, and metaphorical possibilities of methodically making work by hand in a digital age of increasingly rapid advancement. The title drew on Marx’s theory of alienation, which asserts that our humanity is created through production – essentially we are what we make.
July 20 – September 2
Bonnie Jordan, Fae Logie, Tiki Mulvihill
Three artists explored various ways of connection; how we connect to our pasts, presents and futures. Creating photographic prints, installations and sculptures, the work invited viewers to examine their own connections to history, family, nature, place and time.
