Art Exhibition: EZMINA SAMAROO | Distant Shores New Horizons (oils)
February 12 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pmFree
In celebration of Black History Month, Distant Shores New Horizons tells of the artist’s journey from Africa to England to the prairies of Canada, ending with her settling on Canada’s west coast. Told through landscapes and seascapes, Ezmina Samaroo’s exhibition illustrates what it is like to leave behind all that is familiar to arrive at distant shores. The movement of peoples is a complex story, shared by immigrants, refugees and enslaved peoples of the world. Through Samaroo’s lens, it is a story not of despair and fear, but of courage, resolve and determination. An exhibition in Joe’s Lounge.
