Influence

Ericka Walker

Opening Reception: Friday May 5, 2017. 7PM – 9PM

Exhibition Dates
May 4, 2017 – June 10, 2017

This exhibition presents recent work by Nova Scotia-based artist Ericka Walker. Her large-scale multi-colour lithographs draw on the vibrant history of propaganda, printed ephemera, and advertising from twentieth century Europe and North America, exposing nostalgia as an ongoing rhetorical device in a contemporary sociopolitical climate that clings savagely to destructive birthrights and colonial residues.

Ericka Walker was born in Hartford, Wisconsin, USA. She received a BS from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and an MFA from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. Her work has been included in numerous domestic and international exhibitions and biennials, as well as public, teaching, and private collections in Canada, the United States, Europe, and Asia. She currently teaches studio coursework in printmaking as an Associate Professor in the Fine Arts Division at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design.

Sahtuót’ine: Stories from Deline Elders

Laura Grier

Opening Reception: Friday May 5, 2017. 7PM – 9PM

Exhibition Dates
May 4, 2017 – June 10, 2017

The act of storytelling is an act of Indigenous resistance, decolonization, and reclamation. We have a responsibility to hold on to our traditional knowledge. This series of screen prints are stories from the Deline of the Northwest Territories. As a Deline first nation, Laura Grier feels obligated to learn and tell her peoples stories. It is imperative that she preserve and share stories and lessons to demonstrate the continuation of Indigenous culture.

Laura Grier is a Deline First Nation Printmaker, born in Yellowknife, who currently resides in Edmonton Alberta. In 2015, Grier graduated with a Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Fine Arts degree from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University in Halifax. Having grown up away from traditional lands, Laura tries to find ways to revitalize Indigenous culture and knowledge by using traditional print mediums. Laura’s art is inspired by the vitality of Indigenous art practices and is grounded in Indigenous worldviews and lived experiences.
