Exhibit Roy Green: Bird Quartet in Commercial Alley 2014-12-20 All Day

The City of Victoria’s creative partnership with Open Space has transformed the west wall of the Youth Empowerment Society building in Commercial Alley’s busy thoroughfare into an accessible, outdoor public art gallery. Painter, performance artist, and poet Roy Green’s commissioned works feature a four-panel quartet of birds both iconic and indigenous to Vancouver Island: the great blue heron, the pileated woodpecker, the rufous hummingbird, and the red-winged blackbird.

Program supporters: British Columbia Arts Council, Province of British Columbia Community Gaming Grant, Canada Council for the Arts, Capital Regional District, City of Victoria, Victoria Foundation.

Exhibit The Arts of World War I 2014-12-20 All Day

Curated by Marcus Milwright (Department of Art History and Visual Studies)

Legacy Maltwood (at the Mearns Centre – McPherson Library)

For hours & location click here

This exhibition marks the centenary of the start of of the "Great War" with a cross cultural focus on the visual and material culture of World War I. The exhibition includes books, prints, and personal objects drawn from the Legacy Art Galleries, the UVic Libraries (Special Collections and Archives), and private collections in Victoria. These objects present visual manifestations of the war in the theatres of conflict in Europe and the Middle East as well as the production and consumption of art and literature in Canada between 1914 and 1918. Visitors will also see unique examples of European and Middle Eastern "trench art", a term which refers to objects made by soldiers in times of conflict as well as those made of spent artillery shells and other military equipment by civilian artisans after the cessation of hostilities. Another central part of the exhibit is the so-called "J.M. Diary." The curator is inviting the public to solve the mystery of who illustrated this fascinating first-hand visual account.
