About the event
In celebration of a decade of operation, the Vancouver Metal Arts Association invited members to submit to its biennial juried exhibition at the Craft Council of British Columbia. The VMAA welcomed jewellers, metal artists and students of these disciplines to participate in this edition called Evolving Spaces: Transitional in Nature.
When a physical or emotional space breaks its state and can no longer foster us, we push forward under new conditions. Shrinking rooms, displacement, changes of perspective, self-discovery, and the search for safety are some of the many things that can propel us to a new normal. But what do we find in those liminal spaces that we all inhabit? In between what is lost and what will be gained we may discover what is.
These works come from 24 artists, based in Canada, USA and Europe, many with roots in Asia, the Middle East and Europe. The artists address those liminal spaces of aging, new motherhood, disconnection from family, living in a new country, new career, slavery, and the distress invoked by the current climate and care for our planet. The works are as diverse as their themes: some are bold, some are subtle, and others bring humour and curiosity to the observer.
Evolving spaces was juried by Chantel Gushue, Steve Fong, and Louise Perrone.
Evolving Spaces will be exhibiting from January 25 through February 22, 2024.
Join us at the opening reception Thursday, January 25 at the CCBC Gallery from 6-8pm.
From Friday, January 26 through the rest of the run, the exhibition may be viewed during regular business hours from 11am - 5pm
