The Langham Galleries presents an evening reception for three different exhibits exploring the theme of climate change on Friday, May 24, 6:30 – 9 pm.

Shifting Ground is a multimedia exhibition featuring new works by five regional artists – Pat Forsythe, Kevin Kratz, Richard Reeves, Maggie Tchir and Peter Velisek –  reflecting their experience of the changing environment in the Kootenays.

Snow Crust And Sinew by Vuntut Gwich’in artist Jeneen Frei Njootli describes the interconnection of her Nation and the Porcupine caribou through sound and sketch, giving us a glimpse into Northern life and the impacts of a rapidly changing climate.

The Arctic: A delicate balance of strength and fragility by Nelson oil painter and Arctic guide Laura Adams  captures the dramatically changing Arctic landscape.

Join us for this very special evening featuring artist talks and dignitaries, with food and beverages provided by Angry Hen Brewing! Free to the public.
