SHIFT Exhibition Catalogue

Yesterday saw the close of the SHIFT exhibition in North Vancouver.  The physical show is all packed up and back in our studios today, but all of the work can now be viewed in an exhibition catalogue. The catalogue can be viewed online here, and also purchased as a print softcover book. Here's a preview....

With our catalogue project, we wanted to share some of the background and intention in each piece. A little insight into our own stories about each work. We also have letters from the curators of the two SHIFT exhibitions, Sarah Cavanaugh from the Seymour Art Gallery in North Vancouver, and Richard Steel from the ArtCraft Artist Gallery here on Salt Spring.

Living on islands is a conscious choice both Barbra and I have made, and our chosen environments certainly have an impact on our work and our daily art practice. The catalogue also shares some of our thoughts as artists living and working in the Gulf Islands.

Barbra wrote some beautiful words on our collaboration on her website. I could not say it better....

I am grateful to have the opportunity to work with Barbra. Her work is dynamic and bold, and the relationships between our pieces is extraordinary and profound. I look forward to continuing our collaboration in new forms, and to deepening our artistic relationship and friendship further.
An end and a beginning...

Warm wishes,


  1. What a gorgeous collaboration and catalogue! It must be wonderful to have an artist 'neighbor' with such a like mind! :) I'm really looking forward to the next time the two of you exhibit together!! Congratulations!

  2. It really was a beautiful exhibit. Your work is stunning.

  3. Hi Fiona, how wonderful to find someone you can work together with so
    closely !!! It must be such an inspiration to both of you !
    The catalogue looks really wonderful, but it is only an appetizer to see
    it all in real life (which I can't do :-( ....)
