Duthie Gallery is pleased to announce a special event – a slide show presentation by prominent artist Judith Currelly about her work as a bush pilot in the Arctic during the 1980’s and ’90’s. In 1995 she flew German photographer, Wolfgang Weber from Whitehorse, Yukon to northern Ellesmere Is., Nunavut in her small Piper Cub. The photographic and painting record is beautiful, surprising and compelling.
Saturday March 30,
Seating is limited;
please call or email to reserve.
The event coincides with an opening of Judith Currelly’s paintings at the Duthie Gallery that will continue through April.
Judith Currelly’s paintings are inspired by the northern landscape. Although she lives part of the year on Salt Spring, she travels every spring to Atlin, in the far northwest of BC. Every aspect of her life — from homesteader to artist to commercial pilot — is influenced by the north. It forms the basis for her stylized landscapes and wildlife forms painted in a restrained earthy palette. Her work is in many fine collections, Government House and Rideau Hall.
