We are thrilled to welcome Victoria-based tattoo artist and illustrator Andréa Searle as our featured artist for this summer’s MAKE/SPACE Mural Project!
We spent the first half of July eagerly awaiting the submission deadline, and weren’t disappointed by the myriad talented artists whose mural proposals graced our inbox.
This January, artist Margaret August (Shíshálh Nation) installed a new mural project in the foyer at Open Space.
Two Spirit Rising presents a series of images that includes depictions of Thunderbirds as symbols of strength, power and protection. The project speaks to the two spirited people who are rising in today's world to show their gifts, and to find their gifts.
We are currently in the process of creating an interview video with Margaret to learn more about the project and will post that here on the website when ready.
