Hannah Claus: trade – treaty – territory

January 17 – March 13, 2020
Artist Talk and Reception: January 17, 2020, 6:00pm, RPL Film Theatre

Hannah Claus is a visual artist of English and Kanien’kehà:ka/Mohawk ancestries. Claus’ artworks emphasize an Indigenous worldview, and often reference sky, earth, and water. For this exhibition, Claus explores trade and treaties. Through videos, sculptures, and two-dimensional works, Claus asks viewers to consider our connections with each other, and the responsibilities we have to the world around us. Curated by Jennifer Matotek, Director/Curator. Central Gallery.


Leah Marie Dorion: Thirteen Moons

February 5 – March 27, 2020
Artist Conversation and Reception: February 5, 7:00pm, Sherwood Library

Métis artist Leah Marie Dorion shares the moon teachings through her detailed painting and poetry. Important to Indigenous women’s wisdom and traditional cultural knowledge, the moon teachings honour women as vital life-givers. The moon, known by many Elders as “Our Grandmother,” marks the passage of time. It provides wisdom, comfort, protection and strength from its position above us in the sky. Through her work, Dorion restores Indigenous women’s teachings and connects us to the sacred and healing natural law cycles. Curated by Wendy Peart, Curator of Education and Community Outreach. Sherwood Gallery.
