Olga Campbell: A Whisper Across Time


Olga Campbell: A Whisper Across Time

Sidney and Gertrude Zack Gallery at the Jewish Community Centre, Vancouver, BC - Nov 15 – Dec 9

by Robin Laurance

Poetry, prose and mixed-media paintings and drawings come together in Olga Campbell’s story of one family’s experiences of the Holocaust. A Whisper Across Time originally took the form of a multimedia exhibition and later became a book, which will be launched at the show’s opening. Described as “a multi-dimensional snapshot of family losses and inter-generational trauma,” the show and book seek a path of healing but also serve as a “cautionary tale,” alerting us to contemporary social and political events.
