Veronica Plewman, Family Lines in Landscape 1

FAMILY LINES IN LANDSCAPE documents Veronica Plewman’s recent exhibition at Kimoto Gallery. Plewman’s abstracted and expressionistic paintings conflate landscape elements with her emotional responses to old family photos, stories and documents. Special focus is on the wartime experiences of her father, L.A. Plewman, a decorated British soldier, and Eliane Plewman, a relative by marriage, who fought with the French Resistance and was captured and executed by the Nazis in 1944.

INTANGIBLE: MEMORY AND INNOVATION IN COAST SALISH ART accompanies the Bill Reid Gallery exhibition (To Dec 10). The focus is on the work of six contemporary Coast Salish artists: Aaron Nelson-Moody, lessLie (Leslie Sam), Marvin Oliver, Ostwelve (Ronnie Dean Harris), Roxanne Charles, and Tracy Williams (Sesemiya). Their work is formally and materially innovative while also seeking to recover and reconstruct “intangible” cultural knowledge. The probing text is by guest curator Dr. Sharon Fortney.
