David Wilson Artist Talk
February 24, 2022 at 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Join us for an in-person artist talk with David Wilson at the Vernon Public Art Gallery on February 24. This talk is presented by the UBC Okanagan Gallery, in collaboration with the Vernon Public Art Gallery.
Wilson’s paintings Northern Lights, Territory Study and Spirit Horse and Rider are now featured in an exhibition highlighting UBCO’s Permanent Art Collection titled Ramble On, curated by Dr. Stacey Koosel. Ramble On is now on display at the Vernon Public Art Gallery from January 13- March 9, 2022.
David Wilson was born and raised in the Vernon area and is a member of the Okanagan Indian Band. He learned Native art forms from Coastal Salish and Haida Artists in Vancouver, and eventually drew inspiration from his connection to the Okanagan Nation. Exploring traditional narratives and using pictographs based on those found on sites in the Okanagan region, he reinterprets the stories of his people.
This artist talk will be simulcast on zoom if you are unable to attend in person.
