They say a picture is worth a thousand words.
This spring SSAC has ushered in a new collaborative exhibit between our Visual Artists and Writers. Compelling and evocative images inspired stories and poetry of joy and sorrow, fear and longing.
Both the images and the accompanying writing will be shared in store and online.
I stepped into the icy water of the French river to line our canoe over very shallow rocks. There was no rush, as the sun shimmered showing the amazing beauty of the colours of the rocks at my feet. Then Mike, who was in front of me stopped and pointed downwards. Following his gaze I joined him and saw huge fish gently swaying around in place, unfazed by our presence, busy spawning their next generation, glimmering, quietly slowly dancing in the sunlight. I felt so privileged to be able to see their magnificence. We stood there in awe till our cold feet told us to move on and leave them to it, but it is a memory I will never forget. Thank you for catching that moment in your painting!
