KIRKBY: Written in Stone

January 12 – February 23, 2018
Hours:  Monday - Thursday, 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

The View Gallery presents “Kirkby: Written in Stone”, an exhibition of Arctic landscape paintings by Ken Kirkby. In homage to the Inuit peoples amongst whom he lived for five years, Kirkby’s naturalistic landscapes feature inukshuk, stone markers built by the Inuit, in the shape of humans. For Kirkby, they are symbols of survival and endurance – of the land, and its people. The paintings were donated by the artist to Vancouver Island University in 2016.

Opening: Friday, January 12, 6:30-8:30pm
