EXHIBITIONS


02 Cliff Painting 1024x6731

Until July 2
Curated by Jesse Birch and Liz Park

Nanaimo Art Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Marianne Nicolson, a Victoria BC based artist of Scottish and Dzawada̱'enux̱w First Nations descent. Nicolson's work first came to prominence in 1998 when she scaled a cliff face near her ancestral village Gwa'yi to paint a 11.5 meter high by 8.5 meter wide pictographic crest symbol that shows the origin story of her people.
