Yukon Art Society Members' Show2019 07 Focus and Edge YAS Members
Water

Opening reception: Friday, July 5, 5-7pm
On view:
July 5 - 27, 2019

Water is a critical resource for all life on earth. It sustains us, conveys us, and inspires us. As Yukoners, many of us live on or near waterways and water sources which define our landscapes and provide for our communities.

However, many clean water sources around the world are in danger. As of April 2019, there are 57 long-term drinking water advisories on First Nations reserves across Canada. In light of this, Yukon Art Society members are reflecting on the value of water in their lives for our Summer 2019 Members' Show. Featured works include painting, drawing, sculpture, textiles, contemporary beadwork, sound art, and more.

WATER will be on display until July 27, but purchased works can be taken home immediately if desired.
