New Foreman Art Gallery exhibition by First Nation artist
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/.
