Wheelchair accessible and has gender-neutral washrooms.


This exhibition introduces the work of Alberta artist Katie Ohe to British Columbia audiences through a career that spans over sixty years, as a sculptor, teacher and mentor. MONSOON presents works that reveal her singular vision and its influence, from early ceramic sculpture to recent steel pieces and interactive projects, alongside works by renowned younger artists who studied with her at Alberta University of the Arts (formerly Alberta College of Art and Design): Robin Arseneault, Isla Burns, Christian Eckart and Evan Penny. MONSOON takes its name from a recent sculpture, referencing both the sensual visual language used by the artist herself, whose artistic practice resides in the radiant energy of embodiment and the exploration of the figure in space.

-Katherine Ylitasalo, Guest Curator



Griffin Art Projects

Griffin Art Projects is an art gallery in North Vancouver established to make the visual arts publicly accessible and to contribute to North Vancouver's cultural landscape. Founded by Brigitte and Henning Freybe, who began collecting art in the early 1970s, Griffin Art Projects presents curated exhibitions of contemporary art from private collections, free to the public. Through scholarly exhibitions, events, and publications, the Griffin builds on the strength of contemporary collecting in our region, the importance of historical preservation, and the desire to share these artworks with a broader public. To do this, we work with established cultural producers, artists and art educators in the region.
