Kip Wiley: Seeking The Holy Grail

After decades of skiing, Kip Wiley has shared what many others who come from all over the world experience: the seeking of the holy grail of snow. It is the deep, light, dry powder snow which locals have known about for over a century. With winter after winter behind him, Wiley has acquired a solid benchmark for reference to realize when he is at the altar of this holy grail. This exhibition expresses Wiley’s passion for chasing these moment of perfect unison and harmony, exploring the wonderment when terrain, snow, stability, weather, and friends come together, transcending from a simply fun experience, to one of a euphoric state of pure and absolute joy.

Jewelles Smith: Motherhood Dialogues Visual Interrogations

This series of work produced by Jewelles Smith seeks to redefine definitions and assumptions about disAbled mothering through a critical disability and feminist lens. Smith contemplates visual concepts of disabled bodies, mothering responsibilities, disability as a structure, and the tensions that exist between the theories, as well as the exploration of her own identity and myths. Some themes include post-partum depression, PTSD, physical disabilities, and socially constructed disabilities.

Jacqueline Palmer: A Thousand and Two Wild Horses

Ceramicist Jacqueline Palmer has had a lifelong love of horses, which have been ever present in her painting and pottery. The exhibition is a tribute to the horse and all that it symbolizes for Palmer: beauty, courage and freedom.

Susan and Kristi Lind: Generations

Mother and daughter, Susan and Kristi Lind have come together to explore how they inspire one another, artistically and beyond. Both artists have produced individual landscape paintings featuring the City of Revelstoke. Visitors to this exhibition will reflect upon the passage of time, as both artists share the same image while creating the paintings within different seasons.
