Opening Reception

Thursday, March 7, 7-9pm | Artists in attendance | Free admission

Artists: Melenie Fleischer, Michael Shumiatcher, Eric Wilson, a group of Dene Artists

Experience the melding of two rich cultural traditions with performance of “Dehcho” by Eric Wilson.

exhibit dates: March 7-April 7, 2019

A collaboration between a group of Jewish artists from Vancouver and the artists and musicians from the Liidlii Kue First Nation from Fort Simpson, Northwest Territories.
Eric Wilson performed a musical work that combined the cello with the traditional Dene caribou skin drums. Painters Melenie Fleischer and Michael Shumiatcher found inspiration in the Celebrations of the Dene people. A group of Dene artists have reciprocated creating art that celebrates their traditional life: birch bark baskets, moose hair tufting and beaded moccasins.
