Convergence/Divergence: Landscape and Identity on the West Coast

About the Exhibition:

Legacy Art Gallery Downtown

August 17 to October 1, 2011

This exhibition explores how West Coast artists, both settler and First Nations, respond to the local landscape as a means of expressing identity, while also suggesting ways in which an artist’s identity provides a lens for interpreting landscape. The title refers at once to commonalities in how people relate to, identify with, inhabit or “resonate” with a particular place (convergence) and the differing ways artists see, experience, connect with, interpret and represent that place (divergence).

Salish Weave Team Note: Coast Salish artists Charles Elliott, Floyd Joseph, and Dylan Thomas are included in this exhibition. See the full catalogue by following the link below:
