Reclaiming our Roots

Indigenous Women Artists Collective



Exhibition runs until May 25th, 2019

Artist Art Market, Saturday, May 25th, 11-3pm

Reclaiming our Roots is a show about tradition and the contemporary development of Indigenous practices as working Indigenous women artists with evolving creative practices. The Indigenous Women Artists Collective (IWA) is made up of eleven indigenous self-identified women who have worked out of the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver since before 2013. IWA aims to present their artwork to the general public, to community members across Vancouver, and beyond. Together, they’ve built a platform for Indigenous women to share, teach, and exhibit their creative practices.

The collective teaches workshops in and around the city of Vancouver, and are working on promoting and developing the careers of Indigenous women. IWA has been together since 2014 and has received several awards including awards from the First Peoples Cultural Council in 2014 and 2018. In 2015, IWA exhibited at the Roundhouse and UBC Learning Exchange and are currently planning for their residency this summer through the Creative City Strategy Grant.

Participating artists: Allison Burns Joseph, Arlene Bowman, Chantel Joseph-Bordeau, Coco Agecoutay, Doris Fox, Georgina Wing-K’lem, Haisla Collins, Jacqueline West, Marilyn Mckee, Shevonne Hall, Veronica Iza.

  Workshops


Expressive Arts | New day and time coming soon. 

We invite you to join WePress Open Studio
Mondays 2–4pm Everyone Welcome


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

Events
                                    Mad Pride 2019 | Mad Honey

As part of the international Mad Pride movement, Gallery Gachet celebrates mental diversity and confronts stigma with our annual Mad Pride exhibition. Mad Pride rejects the inference of illness and disorder, reclaiming the term mad. We recognize our “dangerous gifts” by opening creative critical conversations about diagnosis, medication, and psychiatry. We believe there should be “nothing about us without us” and we are here to offer an artistic radical challenge to confining social norms.

2019’s Mad Pride theme is Mad Honey. From our collective hive we puzzle over poison, medicine, madness, sweetness,
and intoxication. Mad Honey is a form of psychoactive wild honey transformed from the pollen of just
a few rare rhododendron species from the Caucasus and Himalayan mountain ranges. It can be a natural remedy
or a paralyzing toxin, cause euphoria or confusing hallucinations depending on the dose. We reflect on the meaning of adverse reactions through venom, sweetness and the dangerous gifts of nature.

We are welcoming submissions on this theme and will select four artists to exhibit. Please send a description
and images of the work to: programming@gachet.org.  
The deadline for submission is Friday, May 10th. There will be a community component of the show with workshops, stay tuned for the date and time to be announced.


Workshops with Lookout Society


As part of our partnership with the Lookout Society,
Gallery Gachet is enjoying hosting regular workshops with residents
at First Place Residence.
