Nelson-based artist Genevieve Robertson's endless body, is a collection of both small and large scale drawings created by Genevieve since 2021.

Drunken Paw

Calgary-based artists

April 28 to June 10, 2023. OPENING April 28th, 4 -7pm.

Out of 20 years of friendship and several impromptu gatherings at the pub, artists Mark Dicey, Leslie Sweder and Janet Turner formed Drunken Paw in 2009. Their collaborative has responded to human culture while meeting and drawing in urban settings. While at Empire of Dirt Artist Residency, Drunken Paw included the forest and its environment into their drawings. This exhibition displays three large drawings from their time in Creston in 2022, as well as their own individual work.

all roses sleep (inviolate light)

Alana Bartol and Bryce Krynski

Calgary-based artists

March 3 to April 23, 2023. OPENING March 3, 4 -7pm.

Includes an olfactory video that blends how bees and humans experience and use the land around us. Shot using ultraviolet video, visitors are invited to see the prairie landscape from a bee’s point of view and a scratch and sniff card expands on the pleasant and pungent experience of pumpjacks, grazing cattle, prairie grasses and wildflowers. As the solitary bee searches and dreams of a rose, the work is meant to conjure questions about our shared future.
