In the Gallery – RENEWAL: Teen Eco-Art Exhibit
Thursday, April 14–Saturday, May 28
The Sea to Sky Arts Council Alliance, West Vancouver Arts Council, and North Van Arts have been working throughout 2021 with volunteer divers from Divers for Cleaner Lakes and Oceans to collect discarded trash from our local waterways. The items collected from shore clean-ups, retrieved from bottom of lakes, and from beneath ocean docks have been used to create community exhibitions by local artists, environmentalists, and school groups.
Expressing messages of awareness, action, and hope, teen artists from across West Vancouver have transformed collected trash into impactful works of art. These young artists share their perspectives through the mediums of sculpture, photography, and large three-dimensional pieces in an effort to convey the challenges our environment continues to face. The exhibit features work by solo artists along with group submissions from Rockridge Secondary School and Sentinel Secondary School art classes.
This exhibit will be presented in conjunction with the touring exhibition Diving In: The Art of Cleaning Lakes and Oceans, on display at the Silk Purse Arts Centre until May 28.
