The Gallery has commissioned Walter Kaheró:ton Scott, a Kahnawake born artist who lives between Toronto and Montreal to create three new drawings. They come from Scott’s Wendy cartoon, a project he began drawing for fun after finishing art school in 2009. With two books in print and several exhibitions the Campbell River Art Gallery is proud to be a stop in the Wendy-verse. The stories follow Wendy, an art school party girl, and her friends as they try to ‘make it’ in the art world. Scott’s sarcastic portrayals and distinct style are a sideways world you don’t want to miss.

Generously funded by the British Columbia Arts Council, the Province of British Columbia, and the City of Campbell River.
