North Vancouver Island's source for contemporary art
Ask the Mountains
Jenni Schine & Sylvie Ringer with Giorgio Magnanensi
Curated by: Jenelle M. Pasiechnik
March 19 to May 21, 2022
Ask The Mountains is a multi-sensory, immersive installation featuring drawings, paintings, and soundscape compositions referencing the atmosphere and landscape of North Vancouver Island and Malcolm Island; places dear to the artists and many who call the Island their home. During Ask the Mountains, the artists return to Malcolm Island psychologically and emotionally, but not necessarily physically due to the way the pandemic has changed travel. And yet, the artists continue to carry the gifts of Malcolm Island within their separate lives as a way to help move through and seek shelter during difficult times.
Protocols have been put in place to ensure the safety of our visitors and staff. These include:
