Journey of a Salmon Art Exhibition

Event Details

North Vancouver

salmonsalmonsalmonsalmonOpening Reception Thursday, September 13, 7 – 9 pm

This multi-disciplinary exhibition will explore and record the epic journey
of salmon, engaging the viewer in an incredible story of life, death, and
rebirth in British Columbia. Each year, salmon return to their place of
birth, traversing the Pacific Ocean, up river rapids and streams to
reproduce and then die, sustaining the flora and fauna of the temperate
rainforest, and continuing the life cycle for their next generation.

The annual run of the salmon throughout the ocean, seas, and rivers of the
Pacific North West are a vital component of our ecosystem, with marine
life, birds, bears, and humans relying upon them as a primary food source.
Journey of a Salmon will take a look at how pollution, overfishing, and the
destruction of the salmon’s natural habitat are impacting their falling
population.

Through installation, sculpture, painting, and fibre-based art, these
artists will document the salmon’s story and their ecological and
cultural significance within our region.
