Leta Heiberg: Flood (Re)views
Gallery 2 – Grand Forks Art Gallery, Grand Forks, BC - Jun 8 – Aug 17
One of three concurrent exhibitions relating to the rivers of the BC Interior, Leta Heiberg’s series of mixed-media drawings represent her response to last year’s catastrophic flooding of the Kettle River. Based on aerial footage from the time, her expressionistic images convey the unstoppable power of water flowing from the mountain snowpack. In her depictions of the fl ood’s devastation and aftermath, Heiberg asks her audience to deeply process the meaning of what may be the new normal.
