This spring at the Gallery we offer a number of inspiring exhibitions for your groups.
Until March 31, 2019 we feature athut / Words Bounce.
 
On from April 26 to June 30, 2019, we feature Across the Table. The title for this exhibition was inspired by the working methods of father and son Snuneymuxw artists Joel Good and William Good, who carve together across from each other at the kitchen table almost every day. However, this practice of shared learning through direct connections across generations is central to all of the artworks in the exhibition. In addition to collaborative carvings by the Goods, Across the Table features a father and daughter who reenact Moby Dick in their kitchen, a mother and daughter who give collaborative museum tours in specially made costumes, and families who dance across generations while sharing stories, music, and gestures. Sharing artistic collaborations between mothers and sons and daughters and fathers and grandmothers, Across the Table is the first exhibition in a year in which Nanaimo Art Gallery asks the question: What are generations?
 
What Does an Artist Do?
What does it mean to be a contemporary artist? What is the job of an artist and what are the ways they work?
Building on the exhibition tour in the Gallery, groups will participate in a creative, lively activity with Art Education Coordinator Yvonne Vander Kooi that emphasizes process. You’ll discover some of the ways artists explore ideas, push boundaries, experiment, create new knowledge and communicate using video, sculpture, performance, installation, photography and paint. We’ll do some great exercises to activate our imaginations and create inspired artworks to take home.
 
Gallery Tour and Workshop Cost: $200 (materials included) – 90 minutes
Available most Tuesday afternoons, all day Wednesday and Thursday
