Vancouver, BC



Offered in English.


Step into a realm where creativity and friendship converge, as we proudly present Sea of Small Change, a dynamic group exhibition featuring seven remarkable women artists, curated by Pennlane Shen of Dazed and Confucius Consulting. In this exhibition, Pennylane challenged each artist to create small works: each under 2 feet, in addition to a single larger piece featuring the colour lapis lazuli, or ultramarine - a hue nodding to rich art historical pasts, ceramic and pattern influences, and the enigmatic allure of the sea. With each artist possessing a distinct artistic voice and working across a diverse range of mediums, this showcase celebrates new small works, exploring collage, drawing, painting and photography. Alongside the exhibition will also be a limited edition Print Shop.

Sea of Small Change is not only a celebration of artistic expression but also a testament to the enduring power of friendship. Witness within this great variety of mini works the collaborative spirit and mutual support that buoys these artists as they push the boundaries of their artistic practice.

Artists Featured: Crissy Arseneau, Aimée Henny Brown, Shira Gold, Sandeep Johal, Marlene Lowden, Jamie Smith, Amy Stewart



Amy Stewart - Abstract Artist

Vancouver-based artist Amy Stewart has been drawn to the interconnections of art, play and nature since her childhood in 108-Mile House, British Columbia, where she spent most of her time outdoors. That first northern home continues to dominate much of Amy’s current artistic world. The memories of childhood and nature shape her adult imagination, and they are reflected in her paintings’ rich textures and vibrant tones. Her pieces are often inspired by the feelings that come both from the natural world and from engaging fully in her community and with her loved ones. “I paint how I feel and who I am,” Stewart explains. And that sense of humanity—the private experiences of suffering and celebration—is evoked by her canvases’ unique explorations of colour, which range from exuberant bursts of brightness to contemplative reflections on darkness.
