YOU INSPIRE ME
CAHKA and JAKE Present: An Illustrated Journey
We have chosen a representative selection of prints spanning nearly three decades of creative collaboration, showcasing the evolution of digital photography and digital darkroom techniques. These images are a mix of self-portraits, snapshots and formal studio set-ups. The composite prints are a collection of 8mm film and video frame-grabs, slide and photo scans. We take turns being the Muse or the Artist, often on the same image. We do our own printing, framing and matting. None are for sale.
Most of the post-processing was done in Photoshop using 16- or 32-bit resolution. The monitor and printer were calibrated using an Optix colorimeter and DisplayCal software. Printing was done full-bleed on 17” x 22” Epson Premium Luster paper using an Epson Stylus Pro 3880 at 360 DPI.

Mary Mc Rae, A Lifetime of Art:
On behalf of the Lasqueti Arts Council, I am pleased to announce a showing of celebrated local artist Mary Mc Rae's work, July 7th - 20th. For years she has graced us with her visual art, cooking, healing wisdom and passion for dance in the community. This is a show to honour her journey on canvas and paper. Expect a series of visions in various mediums highlighting her presence on the island. More details to be announced prior to the show.
There is always art in every heart! ❤️
Land Ghosts And Lost Ancestors
August 4th to 17th
Sculptor Eva Hesse once said “don’t ask what the work is, rather see what the work does”. Painter Paul Klee was quoted as saying “see with one eye, feel with the other”.
Using colour and form, and drawing from landscape, memory and embodied knowledge, artists Esther Tschurilow, Sue Wheeler and Gordon Scott explore the space where the boundaries between abstract and representational work bend and blur. Curated by Jennifer Brant (in conversation with the artists), the show will feature a selection of new and past work from all three artists.
Please join us for the opening reception on Friday August 5th. There will also be a talk to accompany the exhibition, date to be announced.
