Wunderkammern

     Wunderkammern translates to 'cabinet of curiosities' which were proto-museums in the Renaissance Europe. Before public galleries began, individual patrons would demonstrate their breadth of knowledge and wealth of travel experience via a small room filled to the brim with exotic artifacts. Although it has colonial roots, I couldn't help but register with this idea as I began to put this exhibition together. An incredibly diverse group of artists using an astoundingly unique set of materials, this exhibition will exemplify the diversity and strength of talent along the Northwest Coast.

      Seeing an artist's eyes light up as they talk about working with mountain goat horn for the first time, or the process for creating 'fire copper' is the exact same light everyone here at Alcheringa would like to share with you. Please join us for some champagne and holiday cheer on Saturday November 25th at 2pm for a lovely afternoon. This exhibition will be on display until the new year so you can come in at your leisure.

See you there!
Darren Pottie (Curator)
