Through the use of colour and felt, this artist brings to attention the importance of keeping our waters clean and healthy.
beneath the Salish Sea
This is a crucial time for many of the marine animals that live beneath the Salish Sea; an inland sea that encompasses the waters surrounding the Gulf Islands and the San Juan Islands. This display highlights a selection of the 113 marine species that have been listed as being endangered or of concern. The intention of this display is to provoke concern and thought of protecting this habitat from pollution, over-ﬁshing, and other threats. This will ensure the necessary recovery of these endangered marine mammals, ﬁsh and even people who depend on these waters.
looking glass: the apertura series
Coming soon to the CCBC gallery – Looking Glass: The Apertura Series, an exhibition by glass artist Laura Murdoch
This exhibition will include fifteen cut and polished sculptural bowls, each one its own entity, on its own pedestal, separate from the others. The concept of the “containment” of a vessel is still central to Murdoch’s work but in a more open form that allows more light to shine in and reveal the inner workings of each vessel, creating a dialogue between light and layers.
