POLLINATOR TALKS AT THE KELOWNA ART GALLERY!
UBC’s Public Art Pollinator Pasture Project will be running a series of events at the Kelowna Art Gallery this summer in conjunction with the gallery show, For All is For Yourself. All events are free admission and take place at the Kelowna Art Gallery, 1315 Water St, Kelowna.
The Gallery exhibition For All is For Yourself aims to raise interest and awareness of the plight of native pollinators in British Columbia (and across the country). This collaborative artwork was produced with the support of over 100 individuals across Kelowna, Richmond and Vancouver who assisted in creating the hand-made seed paper that was transformed into the 10,000 bumblebees on the gallery walls. Each bee holds the potential to produce a mini “pollinator pasture” and is a poetic representation of two living earthworks that are developing in Richmond and Kelowna. The show will be up in the Front Space of the Kelowna Art Gallery from June 20 – October 9th 2016.
Dr. Cameron Cartiere, the artist and researcher who created For All is For Yourself will be giving an artist talk on Friday, July 8 7 – 8:30 PM. Dr. Cartiere, who is from Emily Carr University of Art + Design, will talk about the development of the installation, the Richmond and Kelowna Bee Pastures, and how these can contribute to helping our wild bee populations. People are invited to pre-register at https://forallisforyourself.eventbrite.ca The opening reception for the show is on Saturday, July 9 from 2 -4 PM.
