New Fore­man Art Gallery ex­hi­bi­tion by First Na­tion artist

Sherbrooke Record - - TALK - By Em­i­lie Hack­ett Spe­cial to the Record

Bishop’s Univer­sity’s Fore­man Art Gallery will be pre­sent­ing Le rêve aux loups, a col­lec­tion by Marry Anne Bark­house. Cu­rated by Jen­nifer Rud­der, the ex­hi­bi­tion will of­fi­cially open on Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 18, with a re­cep­tion from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Bark­house will also be giv­ing a lec­ture on the same day at 1:30 p.m. in the Gallery. Open from Tues­day to Satur­day from noon to 5 p.m., the Gallery of­fers free ad­mis­sion to all.

Bark­house is a mem­ber of the Nimp­k­ish Band, Kwak­i­utl First Na­tion, lo­cated in Bri­tish Columbia. Con­cerned with en­vi­ron­men­tal and In­dige­nous is­sues, an­i­mals play a key role in Bark­house’s col­lec­tion. Ac­cord­ing to the Gallery, her work in­te­grates the man-made and nat­u­ral worlds, as the raven, wolf, and coy­ote sym­bol­ize the abil­ity to adapt, per­sist, re­gen­er­ate and re­pair in the face of en­vi­ron­men­tal strug­gles.

The ex­hi­bi­tion will be hap­pen­ing from Oc­to­ber 18 to De­cem­ber 15. For more in­for­ma­tion, please visit http://www.fore­man.ubish­ops.ca/ex­hi­bi­tions/.

Cut­line: Like much of her col­lec­tion, Mary Anne Bark­house’s Mon­sieur strad­dles the man-made and nat­u­ral worlds.
