Description

Contemplative Communion

A simple Christian service where we gather to pray,
hear the gospel, and share bread and wine – food for the journey.
Pause in the middle of the week, in the middle of the day,
for a half-hour oasis of peace and soul food.

Come for a free soup meal at noon, beforehand!

Exhibit One Way or Another - Megan Dickie 2017-01-23 All Day
Description

One Way or Another highlights the failure involved in the quest for excellence. The project originated with a trilogy of videos that use classic video games as a platform to investigate human struggle. Within this trilogy a character blunders through a series of obstacles that constantly defy her. These impediments are indicative of forms and concepts that drive my artistic practice: logic inspired, insurmountable forms that are turned into absurd objects of physical comedy. The structures from the videos have been brought to life through sculptures that focus on endless patterns. Together, the sculptures and videos create an immersive environment of humorous persistence. Questioning the value of human progress and highlighting the struggle for bigger, better and more.

 

Megan Dickie is an artist who works in the mediums of sculpture, video and printmaking. Her artistic research focuses on the seductive tension that exists between reason and play. Dickie explores this concept by subverting systems and structures with critically deployed humour.

 

Megan Dickie has exhibited her work across Canada with exhibitions at Oxygen Art Centre (Nelson), Latitude 53 (Edmonton), Stride (Calgary), Grunt Gallery, (Vancouver) BC, the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, the Kenderdine Art Gallery (Saskatoon), Artcite Inc. (Windsor) and Artspace (Peterborough) to name just a few. Dickie has received numerous grants from the Canada Council for the Arts and the BC Arts Council. Her BFA in printmaking was obtained from the University of Calgary in 1997 and she received a MFA in sculpture from the University of Saskatchewan in 2002.  Megan Dickie currently resides in Victoria, BC and is an Assistant Professor of Visual Art at the University of Victoria.

Film KONELINE: our land beautiful 2017-01-23 19:00:00
Description

Back by popular demand!

KONELĪNE: our land beautiful

Director: Nettie Wild, Canada, 2016, 96 minutes; PG

WINNER! BEST CANADIAN DOCUMENTARY! –Hot Docs 2016

Like last year’s doc ‘Haida Gwaii,’ Nettie Wild’s extraordinary documentary reveals the stunning landscape to the north, and charts the tension between a still relatively pristine beauty and the scars of economic development. First and foremost a rhapsodic visual response to a place and the people in it, KONELĪNE engages the senses with its ravishing aerial views and staggering vistas (as well as its superb sound design).… The film is a meditation on different cultures, different conceptions of time and value, and a glimpse of the something that will surely outlast us all. –Vancouver International Film Festival

”TRANSCENDENT, BREATHTAKING SPECTACLE!” --Maclean’s

“A FEAST FOR THE EYES….A tone poem to a beautiful land and the amazing characters who live in it. I urge you to see it.” - POV

“Award-winning director Nettie Wild crafts a breathtaking love letter—in stunning CinemaScope and surround sound—that captures the majestic beauty of the land and the unique people who live on it." --Hot Docs 2016
