Join us for Wander and Words, an interactive writing workshop based on the art in "Paths". Take inspiration from the art in the gallery and the local landscape to create your own poetic response to the question, “What path brought me here today?”
Free. Registration required. Ages 12+

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
The workshop will begin with a tour through the exhibition Paths at Art Gallery at Evergreen, which features artwork by Canadian artists exploring paths, both real and imagined, through the mediums of painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, collage and printmaking. As a group we will consider: How do paths connect us to one another? How does the environment affect my interior perceptions? How can intuition be my guide? Participants will be encouraged to use close-looking strategies to reflect and follow their curiosity in the gallery and around Lafarge Lake. After wandering the scenic park and engaging in self-directed writing time, participants will have the opportunity to share what they’ve written and observed. No writing experience required.

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
"Paths" features artwork by twenty-two Canadian artists exploring paths, both real and imagined, through the mediums of painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, collage and printmaking. The exhibited works show us that a path can be used to communicate a direction, a line of thought or a plan for action. Paths can also be seen in representations of the natural world, taking the form of forest trails, migratory patterns, maps and waterways, as well as within our built environment. We can find pathways through abstraction by exploring gesture, pattern, line and form and we can seek our own paths of understanding through personal journeys and the creative process.

While visiting this exhibition, we invite you to wonder with us:
What path brought me here today?
How do paths connect us to one another?
How might we support the well-being of our lands and communities through paths of learning and action?
