Reflections: A Meditation on 35 Years of Collecting

October 21st, 2021 – January 2nd, 2022

Featuring work by Catherine Blackburn, Thoma Ewen, Adad Hannah, Murray Johnson, lessLIE, Clint Neufeld, Gary Pearson, Jennifer Annaïs Pighin, Theresa Sapergia and Peter von Tiesenhausen.

Reflections: A Meditation on 35 Years of Collecting celebrates the 50th anniversary of Two Rivers Gallery through a selection of artwork acquired since its permanent collection began 35 years ago. Two Rivers Gallery has built a collection from generous donations by exhibiting artist and collectors, as well as artworks purchased or obtained through major projects in collaboration with contemporary artists from across Canada.

As we contemplate the permanent collection, we consider the path Two Rivers Gallery has taken and that which we will forge in the future. We are proud of the art that calls the Gallery home, yet we also recognize the opportunity for growth as we continue to expand our idea of what our permanent collection can and should be.

We invite the community to take part, interacting with our permanent collection by sharing thoughts and creating new labels and hashtags in response to the artworks on display. What do you think an art collection in Northern BC should look like?

Stay tuned in early November for a second interactive project, inviting you to be the curator and arrange your own exhibition! Take a photo of the finished display and use the hashtag #MyTRGCollection and share it with us @tworiversgallery on Instagram and Facebook.
