For those of you who might not follow B.C. member Catherine Nicholls, she has a piece in the exhibit "Wonderland" now showing through October 11 at the CityScape Community Art Space in North Vancouver. Her piece is entitled "Jaberwocky" and she blogs about it -- and the opening reception last week -- HERE.
Where in Alberta is The Burgess Shale?
The Burgess Shale has begun its second year of touring with TREX under the auspices of the Alberta Society of Artists. In order that some of the good folk in North-central and Northern Alberta get to see it, the exhibit will be travelling "up there" between now and the end of February. It will then return to Southern Alberta for the remainder of its tour before it takes up permanent residence in B.C. near the site of the Burgess Shale excavation.
The Burgess Shale opened this tour September 3 at the Hinton Municipal Library, where it will remain through October 1. October 10 through November 5 it will be on show at Peace River High School. Additional tour dates can be found on our Networking Page. If you have family and friends in these places, do let them know about the Project.
Remember, though, if you wish to view it in a school setting, which is not generally open to the public, please contact the school and arrange an appointment in advance. Thank you for your support!
