Car­ry­ing His­tory

Where Vancouver - - Art Galleries -

Some vases hold wa­ter, oth­ers hold his­tory. Such as “The Space Be­tween” (pic­tured) by famed First Na­tions artist Cor­rine Hunt. The vi­brant wood-and-acrylic ves­sel fea­tures an in­her­ited raven crest, a trea­sure in­cluded in the dowry of Hunt’s great-great­grand­mother. Her an­ces­tor was also con­sid­ered the first no­table artist in a long line of cel­e­brated artists—a legacy also cap­tured in the vase’s de­sign. For more of Hunt’s re­mark­able works—and his­tory—see Re­silience at Coastal Peo­ples (Nov. 17 to Dec. 29; page 31).
