Each piece in this collection covers a different aspect of the history of our local area and its connection to current society. The pieces in this exhibit are placed in chronological order which tells the story of the evolution of where we live. These pillars of our lives are often overlooked in the day to day living however they are essential elements which form the foundation of our society.

Artist Bio:

Emma Fish draws inspiration from nature, fueled by her passion for snowboarding and her affinity for the mountains. Since immigrating from Australia to British Columbia in 2016, she has channeled her experiences into vibrant artworks that express the emotions evoked by her surroundings. Emma’s work has been showcased in prestigious galleries and museums across the province, including The Chilliwack Museum, The Galley George and Centre A. Actively involved in the Vancouver art scene, she participates in events such as the North Shore Art Crawl and Pancakes and Booze.

As a local emerging artist she has created multiple series looking deep into the beautiful Canadian Landscapes. She has dived into the themes of sustainability by creating pieces completely out of recycled plywood and painted pieces in the middle of the forest. She is currently working on a more abstract landscape series called “Coming Together”.
