The Polygon Gallery, North Vancouver, BC - To Spring 2018

by Robin Laurence

The gallery’s inaugural exhibition brings together existing and commissioned artworks that take North Vancouver as their subject. Reflecting on the municipality’s history, geography and cultures, they range from weavings and cedar sculptures by contemporary Coast Salish artists to large-scale photographs and video installations by non-Indigenous artists. Of special note is Myfanwy MacLeod’s The Butcher’s Apron, a one-eighth scale model of Captain George Vancouver’s ship, HMS Discovery.
