Carrielynn Victor's solo show

Four Stó:lō exhibitions are on display at The Reach Gallery in Abbotsford Jan. 26 to May 7.

They feature work by various Fraser Valley artists including Chilliwack’s Carrielynn Victor.

She has created a new series of paintings for her show, Poison, Pattern, Paradigm, utilizing traditional formal elements from Stó:lō culture — the crescent, the trigon, and the chevron. The works recount aspects of Stó:lō stories and worldview, while simultaneously drawing from her lived experience and our collective immersion in popular culture.

Victor is an artist, fisher, plant harvester and medicines practitioner whose work fuses ancestral knowledge and a deep connection to her culture with contemporary techniques and styles. She has been active as an artist for over a decade, and this exhibition will be the first solo presentation of her work.

Her show will be exhibited alongside Grand Theft Terra Firma by David Campion and Sandra Shieds, Stretchers, Headers and Footnotes by Lyndl Hall, and Sq’éwlets: A Stó:lō Coast Salish Community in the Fraser River Valley.

Opening receptions for all four shows is Thursday, Jan. 26 at 6 p.m. at The Reach Gallery (32388 Veterans Way) in Abbotsford.
