Mimi Ama: Dancing in the Sky
July 11 - September 17, 2018
District Foyer Gallery

Mimi Ama is a Vancouver-based artist originally from Toyko, Japan. Ama came to Canada to be closer to nature and to immerse herself in the wilderness. Whilst living in Yellowknife, Ama was inspired by the Aurora Borealis that dance across the northern skies. It is this connection with nature that has inspired the work in this exhibition, with compositions depicting towering boreal forests set against a backdrop of one of earth’s most beautiful spectacles – the Northern Lights.
