ArtSpring, in collaboration with Salt Spring Arts and SJIMA, exhibited a collection of work by Canadian artists in the first of two cross-border exhibitions. The second installment will feature Southern Gulf Island artists at the San Juan Islands Museum of Art and San Juan Artists at a pop-up venue September 22 - December 4, 2023.
The exchange and presentation of work shares important themes and messages. It feels both timely and necessary.
“This exhibition serves as an opportunity for artists, as well as art centers, to engage in meaningful cultural exchange, foster relationships, introduce our communities to world-class artistic excellence, and form a bit of pride that for such a small specific region, we can celebrate something unique on the global stage…”
