Arts Exhibition: Ports of Entry – Janet Wang

February 10 – March 11, 2023; Reception + Talk: Friday February 10th, 5PM

Ports of Entry explores what it means to be Chinese in Canada. It encompasses a range of media, from traditional drawings and paintings, to animated and interactive artwork. This body of work was researched and conceptualized from 2018 – 2021, culminating in an extended trip through British Columbia in 2021, to research the history of Chinese settler migration from the late 1800s. Janet’s trip wound along the Gold Rush Trail and alongside the railway routes carved into the mountainsides by Chinese labourers. She recorded the juxtapositions of the celebrated histories and landmarks with the indelible marks left on the landscape by the labour of Chinese settlers.

MEET THE ARTIST | Gabriela Hirt

On Saturday, January 14 join us to meet the artist Gabriela Hirt and learn more about her exhibition Storied Bodies. Gabriela Hirt is a self taught expressionist mixed media artist based in Victoria B.C.

In the Main Gallery Hirt explores through abstract painting and sculpture the human body as a vessel holding trauma, our collective history and cultural programming, and our ability to overcome discriminative thinking. She aims to understand the legacy of colonialism in her adopted home in Canada. Stylized figures interact with each other in scenes of harmony and imbalance and simplified forms and bold marks and colors invite the exploration of inner emotional states and questions of social justice.
