40th Anniversary Summer Program

Island Mountain Arts Gallery
Wells BC – Jun 11-Sep 24, 2017

The Wells-based Island Mountain Arts Society, now in its 40th year, can lay claim to a number of cultural endeavours that serve the central and northern BC region, but also to the many artists, writers, musicians, and dancers who have been invited to this former gold rush town to share in its cultural wealth. The Island Mountain Arts Gallery is among these endeavours. The gallery was established in 1988 after the IMAS took over and restored the Hill Meat Market building: “You can still see the original chopping block on display,” says Executive and Artistic Director Julie Fowler.

The Island Mountain Arts Gallery is committed to a curatorial program that balances the particularities of community with challenges inherent to contemporary art practice.

The gallery’s summer program includes a range of artists working across the visual spectrum. Until June 11, Barbara Wilson: COMING FROM NOWHERE: Thoughts Beyond Reality, an exhibition that frames the career of an artist with deep roots in the Cariboo. Coming from Nowhere is not a retrospective, but is an opportunity to see Wilson’s current work set against the backdrop of a small selection of her past work.
