Out of Maelstrom

Out of Maelstrom

Saturday, November 17th to Saturday, December 22nd, 2018

Join us for the opening reception with live music from Haisla with Nasty, Brutish and Short on Saturday, November 17th from 6-9PM.

The 2018 Gallery Gachet annual members’ exhibition features new work from thirteen gallery artists responding to the theme: Out of Maelstrom. Emerging and resurfacing from turbulence, chaos, or confusion, Out of Maelstrom reflects on systems of support, resilience, and how we “live to tell the tale”. Orbiting currents can focus an ocean into a whirlpool, asking what directs us, what moves us, and what do we carry? In consideration of these questions the artists manifest replies through illustrations, mixed-media sculptures, paintings, and other interactive works.

Artists: Afuwa, Sharon Burns, Stella Castell, Haisla Collins, Edzy Edzed, Lara Fitzgerald, Karen Irving, Pierre Leichner, Chav Petkov, W.N. Pope, Bruce Ray, Rebecca Slattery, Anthony Wilson.

Gallery Gachet is an artist–run centre located in the downtown eastside neighbourhood of Vancouver. Providing a creative refuge for culture–building, education and advocacy, we believe social justice and mental health are critical elements of a healthy society. Our practice and participation challenges social marginalization while strengthening wellbeing and community.

We respectfully acknowledge that the work of Gallery Gachet takes place on the traditional and ancestral territories of the xʷməθkwəy’əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səl’il’wətaʔ (Tsleil-Waututh).

Start: November 17, 2018

No previous art experience is necessary to participate in the group. We operate on the belief that engaging in creative activities is physically and emotionally healing.
