    "Circling Ravens I " by Shaun Peterson. 

 

Opening Reception,

First Thursday, October 2nd, 6-8pm

         

We welcome Qwalsius Shaun Peterson (Puyallup) back to Stonington Gallery to give us a sneak peek of his major 2015 exhibit, A House, the Moon and the Salish Sea.

The 2015 exhibit will feature new works in a variety of media, inspired by the lunar eclipses and "blood moons" of the past year. Many key myths among the Coast Salish tribes revolve around the moon and sky, and Shaun incorporates and retells these stories in his work.

This October preview will include new prints from Peterson, a selection of works from his archive, and original and limited edition sculpture.      

Stonington Gallery has helped to mentor the artist--now approaching his 40th birthday--since his teenaged years, and is proud to present a new body of work that continues to break new ground about how indigenous artwork is conceived. Over the course of his career, Peterson has worked in both traditional media--carving wood and creating hand-pulled prints--and in new media, incorporating sandblasted glass, giclee ink jet printing, laser-cut metal and digital design into the work. The result is art that continues the resurgence of traditional southern Salish design, but with a fully modern, sleek sensibility.

ISABEL RORICK :

The Awakening

      

                                                    

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  "Raven Timelines Basket" by Isabel Rorick. 

 

Opening Reception,

First Thursday, October 2nd, 6-8pm

         

Like her great grandmother, Isabella Edenshaw, Haida weaver Isabel Rorick has set the standard for spruce root weaving for the next generation. Her work will be studied and analysed for its fineness, difficulty and spiritual quality. Weaving of this sort is a rarity and we are fortunate to be living in the time of Isabel Rorick.

In Isabel's upcoming exhibition with us she will focus on women's regalia, inspired by what she perceives as a time of change and awakening.      

Isabel writes:

It is with great conviction that this show comes because we are amidst great changes here in time. The world as we know it is going through massive changes. Things are changing every day. The weather, the way we grow food, the way we package and process food, the way we communicate.  It is a world that is spread very thin and there are a lot of things that are not following the sacred way things were meant to be.

There has to be a lot of the old ways restored to honour our mother with the prayers, the songs, the dances, and all the practices that the Native people practiced in endless time. The salmon Songs and dances, the rattling songs for healing with the chants and the songs  from the soul, the songs , the dances to honour the art, the songs and rituals that honour every  aspect of life from Birth to Death. We are all hungry for our way home our home is in all aspects of our life.
