Dwelling: People and Place

September 2019 – April 2020

This exhibit explores figures and structures, how each of these effects and alters the other. A single or group of figures, or lack thereof, alters a space/structure and in exchange the space/structure has an effect on these bodies. The traces and evidence created by the relationship of habitation become the objects of interest and inquiry for artistic analyzation.

Drawing from the AFK teaching collection and barrowed works of supporting artists this exhibit spans mediums of sculpture, installation, painting, photography and drawing.



Artists for Kids

ARTISTS FOR KIDS was established in 1989 through a generous partnership among some of Canada's finest artists and the North Vancouver School District. Its mission, through the sale of original prints created by its artist patrons, is to build an art education legacy for the children of British Columbia. The Gordon Smith Gallery of Canadian Art is home to a stunning collection of work created by its patrons. Artists For Kids provides a variety of art enrichment program opportunities for thousands of students of all ages each year including the popular Paradise Valley Summer School of Visual Art.
