Colour Mark, will be in place on August 9th to September 17th with the opening reception on August 11th from 1:00 -3:00.
For her new exhibition Colour Mark, Claire Sarfeld chooses to play with her signature bold strokes while embracing a more vivid and unconventional colour palette. Imposing colorful blocking to her signature loose sweeps Sarfeld creates a complex yet playful narrative throughout this body of work. Sarfeld embraces the tactility of paint with textural elements, and mindfully incorporating metallics and neon throughout.
O'Connor Group Art Gallery in the Chilliwack Cultural Center at 9201 Courboudt Street in Chilliwack.

Grief Work/Hope Work, Rising Tides and Skin Boats: Connecting Ecology, Community, Science and Art
Erica Grimm, Tracie Stewart, and Sheinagh Anderson
Coracle inspired boat sculptures and a virtual sound design invite the viewer to draw analogies between human bodies and bodies of water and ask questions about climate/ocean change–the most urgent of wicked problems facing humanity today. Stumbling along the fault lines between ethics and aesthetics, ecology, community, science and art, these woven entanglements seek to make sense of a complex issue that affects all life.
