The Forecast – Salmon Arm Art Gallery
August 14, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until October 10, 2020
Salmon Arm Art Gallery is pleased to present The Forecast, an exhibition featuring eight local artists who are interpreting evidence of climate change through photography and mixed media. The exhibition opens on Friday, August 14 at 6pm, and continues to October 10, 2020. Gallery hours are Tuesday to Saturday, 11am to 4pm. The exhibition has been generously sponsored by Joyce Henderson and Gabriele Klein.
This is the first exhibition the Art Gallery will be presenting following the Covid-19 shutdown. The exhibition schedule has received an overhaul, and new practices have been implemented at the Arts Centre to abide by protocols set out by WorkSafeBC and the Provincial Health Authority. Visitors are welcome to arrive by the front door, which will be entrance-only, and maintain 2m of distance between themselves and Art Gallery staff and other visitors. The maximum number of people permitted in the gallery at a time is 20.
In The Forecast, artists have created installation work that challenges the visitor to rethink their relationship with evidence. In this fast-paced news era, many get their news from social media, and believe what they see and read despite the warnings of manipulated messaging. Artists offer their evidence, manipulated or not, of the threat of climate catastrophe. Featured in this exhibition are Zev Tiefenbach, Patrick Hughes, Mary Thomas, Myrna Button, Kenneth Whyte, Vanessa Skotnitsky, Kristal Burgess and Aaron Leon.
