February 17 - Atlantic Cod Collage

Artist Michelle Di Menna’s collage paintings in our exhibition Landfall and Departure: Epilogue (Listening to the Sea) uses unusual materials to tell the story of Atlantic cod fishing on Fogo Island. We will play and experiment with found beach materials and gold leaf on painted canvas panels to create our own stunning artworks to take home.

February 24 - Photomontage Past and Present

Gabriola artist and shipwright Dawn Johnston tells new stories with her large photo-mural in the gallery All Lost. We see an image of the frozen land and sea of the Arctic Circle broken by the waving silhouettes of explorers on the Shackleton expedition to Antarctica. We will make observational drawings of the silhouettes and paste them on to black and white landscape photos to create new and unexpected visual stories of our own.
