For the month of May 2016, Oliver & Co. presents:
Occupying the main gallery for the month of May is Robert Keziere‘s collection,The Days of Augusta; the 1972 photographs and audio recordings of Mary Augusta Tappage of Soda Creek BC. Former Vancouver Art Gallery photographer Robert Keziere beautifuly captures the extraordinary life of a community leader. Augusta has been the subject of a book by Jean E. Speare, and an NFB documentary.
Our upper gallery is alive with colour for the month of May, as we display Wells BC artist Caroline Anders‘ exhibition Inertia. The manic thrashing of paint and the pressure of the canvas allows Anders to create vibrant, charming pieces that reflect her own personality. Youthful lines and textures are the result of applying paint in a less than completely controlled manner.
