MARCH 4 – APRIL 23 Virtual Tour available March 9 Public Reception: Friday, March 3, 6 – 8 pm, indoors and masks required Galusha Gallery
In the Galusha Gallery,
CARRIERS | COMMUNITY will feature vessels created by community members as an offering. With Leonard as our guide, NCC will collaborate with local organizations that serve Indigenous youth through educational, social, economic, and cultural development programs. Through our collective work efforts, youth and other community members will be introduced to clay as an art medium while they explore multilayered conversations about local water practices and awareness. The youth’s work in clay will culminate with the creation of vessels and other clay objects which will be part of the CARRIERS exhibition. As of press time, NCC has confirmed the following partners Anishinabe Academy, Birchbark Native Arts, Dream of Wild Health, and MGIZI.
During the run of the exhibition, this space will be an interactive and exploratory one with guests invited to handle the vessels and contribute their own water stories by writing on the gallery walls. In the final days of the exhibition, the makers of the vessels will be invited back again to NCC to participate in a water and story-telling celebration, making use of the vessels they created. A meaningful component of the interaction in the gallery is the knowledge that, while creating the vessel, the maker understands it is ultimately an offering to another person in the community.
