A common theme in Canadian art is the expression of our relationship with the countryside and wildlife. Much more so than many other cultures, Canada is wilderness. From the First Nations to the settlers, and from the modern cities that are shut-down by weather to the small towns that celebrate it, Canadian culture maintains an appreciation and respect for the natural environment. And that influence over us plays out in our stories, our music, and, of course, our visual art.
We invite you to have a look at four artists’ perspectives: Kathryn Steen, Gladys Wheatley, and Lynda Sawyer–all locals; and Jenny Wolpert who now hails from Hope, but was born in Quesnel. The two exhibitions dove-tail, nicely.

This month we are happy to have Carin Covin’s show Monuments and Sandra Hayes-Gardiner’s show One Life.
In Monuments, Carin has used deconstructionism to analyze and synthesize two works as a method of self-discovery, under the backdrop of memory. She maintains that memory resides between the public and private consciousness as a liminal entity.
Sandra has constructed a show of artifacts and documents from her past which is based on her book of memoirs called One Life. In it she explores her life from her earlier recollections through her teen years growing up in The Pas, Manitoba.
We invite you take some time to view these remarkable shows, as we consider memory, experience, and self-discovery.
