Vancouver-based performance artist, Carol Sawyer, has been working for the past fifteen years on The Natalie Brettschneider Archive, an ongoing project interweaving fiction and real life to create a body of work that challenges the conventions of art historical narratives.
We are honoured to present a retrospective of pottery and clay sculpture by Victoria artists Jan and Helga Grove. This extensive exhibition is comprised of approximately one hundred pieces of pottery and sculpture made between 1953 and 2005.
“Culture cannot be contained as it unfolds. My art enters this stream at many different points, looking backwards, looking forwards, generating its own sound and motion.”
The Art Gallery of Greater Victoria is committed to high quality educational programming. We launched the Teacher Resource Guide in September, and since then, our Gallery educators Sherry Willing and Jen Van de Pol have been busy facilitating 1/2 day workshops in participating schools along with guest artists Alexis Hogan and April Russell.
Every third Sunday from October to June, the Gallery’s Family Sunday Program welcomes guest artists and promotes a hands-on introduction to art. On November 20, the event was inspired by the collaborative work of Vancouver Island based artists Jim, Nathan and Cedric Bomford.
