The Nanaimo Art Gallery is presenting Explorations, a group exhibition by graduating Vancouver Island University students in their fourth year BA minor of visual arts. Explorations will be at the downtown Nanaimo Art Gallery, 150 Commercial Street, from March 30 to April 23, 2011. Everyone is welcome at the opening reception between 7 and 9 pm on Friday, April 1, 2011.
For many of these VIU students, this exhibition has been years in the making. Inspirations echoed in the artwork include the natural environment, photography, calligraphy, women’s sexuality, history, and philosophy. Some of the featured artists are Dona Naylor, Jolene Marston, Gail Beerman, Wendy Karpuik, Jessica Molcan, Angie Nielsen, Laura Feduk, Freya Kyrstein, and Jeanne Ironside. Explorations will inspire you with a wide array of artistic visions. By visiting the show, you’ll be supporting these students. Who knows you may find a piece you would like to take home!
