Description

THE EDGE OF SEVENTEEN

Director: Kelly Fremon Craig, USA, 2016, 105 min; 14A

A new coming-of-age movie in the vein of ‘Sixteen Candles’ - an honest, candid, often hilarious look at what it's like to grow up as a young woman in today's world. Life is not easy for high school junior Nadine (Hailee Steinfeld), who is already at peak awkwardness when her older brother (Blake Jenner) starts dating her best friend (Haley Lu Richardson)….but the friendship of a thoughtful boy (Hayden Szeto) gives her a glimmer of hope.

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-02-17 10:00
Description

We know Grafton Tyler Brown (1841-1918) was one of the first professional landscape artists to work in the Pacific Northwest. His few regional paintings that survive offer vivid windows into the world of 1880s Victoria and British Columbia. Yet, how did this African American artist succeed at a time when racial prejudice prevented most Blacks from entering any skilled profession? Guest curated by Dr. John Lutz (History, UVic) with Emerald Johnstone Bedell and Caroline Riedel. Created in partnership with UVIC Legacy Art Galleries and UVIC History Department. With conservation support from the Royal BC Museum.

Theatre PHOENIX: Gut Girls 2017-02-17 20:00:00
Description

Gut Girls

February 9 –18, 2017

By Sarah Daniels
Directed by Alix Reynolds (MFA Candidate)

Foul-mouthed and brash, an unrefined group of young women toil in the Cattle Market slaughterhouses. But not everyone thinks this is an appropriate way for women to earn a living! The gutting sheds are closed down when a well-to-do lady decides to improve their lot in life by training them as maids. The ‘gut girls’ quickly realize that this newfound employment comes at a high price. With sharp dialogue and dazzling humour, Gut Girls cuts right to the heart of women’s struggle for emancipation.

Gut Girls is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.

Appropriate for ages 14+

Exhibit Ellen Neel: The First Woman Totem Pole Carver 2017-02-17 10:00
Description

This exhibition celebrates the career of Kwakiutl (Kwakwaka'wakw) carver Ellen Neel (1916-1966), the first woman carver of monumental totem poles. Further, it acknowledges Neel's influential role as a professional artist and her contribution towards the recognition of Northwest Coast Indian art as a contemporary art form.

"Our art continues to live, for not only is it part and parcel of us, but can be a powerful factor in combining the best part of Indian culture with the fabric of a truly Canadian art form."

Ellen Neel
