Talking Art is FREE and will be held at The Arts Factory (281 Industrial Ave).

Sunday, October 23 – 2pm
Material: Britta Fluevog and James Kemp

Britta Fluevog and James Kemp both balance experimental sculpture and installation works with the production of functional wares, each arising through the process of their material practices.

Saturday, October 29 – 2pm
Narrative: Haisla Collins and Richard Tetrault

Haisla Collins and Richard Tetrault are both engaged in individual and community-based works, each informed by strong narratives and realized in brilliant colour.

Sunday, October 30 – 2pm
Abstraction: Rachael Ashe and Heather Braun-Dahl

Rachael Ashe and Heather Braun-Dahl work in different media, but are brought together through form and line, with abstraction as a common ground and understanding.

Saturday, November 5 – 2pm
Place: Marcus Bowcott and Connie Sabo

Marcus Bowcott and Connie Sabo have both addressed place through environmental and social concerns, with intimacy and individuality that nonetheless speaks to the collective.

Talking Art is curated by Francesca Szuszkiewicz, who has presented programs and exhibitions in Vancouver, most recently at Malaspina Printmakers.
