Blanketing: Jesse Campbell


Blanketing: Jesse Campbell

Open Space, Victoria, BC - To Dec 14

by Robin Laurence

Métis / Cree artist Jesse Campbell has painted a brilliantly hued mural in the entranceway and inner stairwell leading to Open Space’s second-fl oor gallery. Based on a traditional blanket pattern, it alludes to the artist’s ancestral culture while also honouring the gallery’s programming and his involvement in it. Campbell, an acclaimed mural painter based in Victoria, was one of the original participants in the Indigenous Youth Artist Showcase at Open Space in 2013.
