ArtSpring proudly presents the work of Ian Thomas with an exhibition that commemorates his 46th year as an active member of Salt Spring’s arts community.

 Curated by Margaret Day and Stefanie Denz, the “Past” is a lifetime retrospective on a grand scale through painting, sculptural collage, and installations that captures a deep exploration of the human condition.

The “Present” is a new series, Poets and their Poetry, in which Thomas pays tribute to 36 writers close to his heart, including six poets from Salt Spring. These intimate works on paper combine textual fragments with portraiture. By unflinchingly addressing his own felt experience, he reminds us of our own collective memory and humanity.

 Selected work by authors will be part of an evening event of poetry with award-winning poet Murray Reiss as MC on May 16.
