Out of Maelstrom

The Annual Members Show

Exhibition runs: November 17th-December 22nd, 2018

Join us for the opening reception with live music
from Haisla with Nasty, Brutish and Short
on Saturday, November 17th from 6-9pm.

The 2018 Gallery Gachet annual members’ exhibition features new work from twelve gallery artists responding to the theme: Out of Maelstrom. Emerging and resurfacing from turbulence, chaos, or confusion, Out of Maelstrom reflects on systems of support, resilience, and how we “live to tell the tale”. Orbiting currents can focus an ocean into a whirlpool, asking what directs us, what moves us, what do we carry? In consideration of these questions the artists manifest replies through illustrations, mixed-media sculptures, paintings, and other interactive works.  

Artists: Afuwa, Sharon Burns, Stella Castell, Haisla Collins, Edzy Edzed, Lara Fitzgerald, Karen Irving, Pierre Leichner, W.N. Pope, Bruce Ray, Rebecca Slattery, Anthony Wilson.

Gallery Gachet is an artist–run centre located in the downtown eastside neighbourhood of Vancouver. Providing a creative refuge for culture–building, education and advocacy, we believe social justice and mental health are critical elements of a healthy society. Our practice and participation challenges social marginalization while strengthening wellbeing and community. 

We respectfully acknowledge that the work of Gallery Gachet takes place on the traditional and ancestral territories of the xʷməθkwəy’əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səl’il’wətaʔ (Tsleil-Waututh).

Expressive Arts | Mondays, 1 - 3 pm

The Expressive Arts Group began as a program through the West Coast Mental Health Network. There are about 30 participants, who meet on a drop-in basis every Monday afternoon to paint, make collages, use mark-making tools,
do print-making and/or sculpture. No previous art experience is necessary
to participate in the group. We operate on the belief that engaging in creative activities is physically and emotionally healing. We provide art materials, instruction (if needed and desired) and support in an inclusive, accessible
and safe atmosphere. Free.

If you are interested in attending, please call 604-687-2468
