Wendy Goes West

Walter Scott

March 1 – April 25

Satellite Gallery

Curated by Jenelle Pasiechnik

The Campbell River Art Gallery 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.

July 12 – September 5

Main Gallery

Curated by Vicky Chainey Gagnon

The exhibition Horizon Felt presents the work of artists who draw on diverse media to focus on different ‘perspectives’ that challenge what is seen through the naked eye. What can a pink sky, a malleable sculpture made with a thousand small triangles, and a slow-motion video about trees tell us about how the landscape is achieved in art-making today?
