Canada Day 2017: Cultures, Histories, and Possibilities

July 1,2017 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

KelownaMuseums Quite Stories July 1 2017 v2 Canada Day 2017:  Cultures, Histories, and PossibilitiesConnect with Canada Day 2017 at a special C150 display. What’s your story? Find out when you explore Quiet Stories from Canadian Places.

Take an interactive self guided tour through the places and stories in this special exhibit to discover new and familiar connections to the people and places in our community.

Last fall artist Heather Cline interviewed Kelowna residents who shared personal memories of their homes and the community. Cline was inspired to paint some of the locations, connecting with the subject matter through other people’s reminiscences and experiences of place. The recollections featured in the exhibition are from a range of everyday people, from fruit pickers to school children.

The resulting exhibition, installed at the Okanagan Heritage Museum, features fifty paintings interspersed with audio stories that create a dynamic narrative space filled with images and soundscapes.

About the Artist:
Heather Cline is a painter and mixed media artist living and working in Regina, Saskatchewan. Since completing her MFA at the University of Saskatchewan in 2001, Cline has been exploring narratives around place and personal history. She is fascinated by how personal history intersects with human geography; currently, this involves merging collage soundscapes with lush intricate paintings of everyday places.
