7 pm – 8:30 pm Join us for a special author event with Beatrice Elaine Silver. Beatrice is a local Sumas author and advocate. Beatrice built her career in education and First Nations leadership. She was a primary school teacher, and then a school principal. Eventually she held the position of Coordinator Of Indigenous Education For The Ministry Of Education, overseeing Indigenous Education in the Fraser Valley School Districts. In addition, she has served as the Chief of Sumas First Nation. Lex̲èywa - I Pass the Torch to You is her first published book. Her memoir begins before school: a childhood in a small Indian Reserve, first surrounding the reader with her loving family. Many children in Beatrice's generation were taken from home by Indian Affairs agents when they were too young to be able to later recall that safety and certainty. This story allows the reader to walk in the little shoes of a girl who survived the infamous school. She did so by sheer force of will, generated by confidence in the love of her family and the strength of her seven-year-old identity.

Contact: BettyAnn Martin 604.392.8000
E-Mail: cvaa.publicity@gmail.com
Website: http://www.oconnorgroupartgallery.com
Description:

Crossroads presents the artworks by Karlie Norrish McChesney. Karlie’s art making frequently explores her love of perspective and structural form.  Her art practice requires much measuring, calculating and arranging of colour, so much so that her work is a form of puzzle solving. Her preferred medium is fibre in the form of stitched textiles with an element of mixed media applied to the surface or standing as an installation accompanying the 2D work; these materials include paint, paper, plastic, metal, clay, and/or wood. This body of work is her response to a time of great change in her life, where many decisions were required. All the pieces of work contain a path representing the choices a person has available to them and a container representing the restrictions or parameters that influence the decision making process. Karlie is a retired art teacher from the Chilliwack School District.  She is an active member in SAQA (Studio ArtQuilts Association), FAN (Fibre Art Network) and in the CVAA (Chilliwack Visual Artists Association). This is Karlie’s first solo exhibition and she is very excited to share it with you. She invites everyone to join her at the opening reception on October 12, 2019 from 1:00 to 3:00 pm in the O’Connor Group Art Gallery, 9201 Corbould Street, Chilliwack, B.C.  The exhibition runs from October 10 to November 16. Gallery hours are 12:00 noon to 5:00 pm, Wednesday to Saturday, as well as 6:30 – 7:00 pm preceding evening theatre performances.  Admission is free.
