This event repeats every 3 weeks on Sunday and Saturday until 17/03/19


Opening: Friday, March 1, 7-9pm
Regular Gallery hours  :  Saturdays and Sundays 11am until 4pm.
 
This body of work comes from the artist’s interest in exploring the structure of looking. It questions what it means to look at images in today’s chaotic, consumer-driven visual environment. One strategy employed is to reduce the elements of the paintings to cut through the noise of everyday imagery. Marks are used as building blocks; repeating them to create a weave, net, or field of positive and negative information. This repetitive process creates an image that denies hierarchy (narrative) or inspiration (the grand gesture). It emphasizes labour (process) and touch (the artist’s hand).

“In the Spirit” (detail) Charles Elliot (TEMOSEN)
 
ALCHERINGA ENTERS THE NEW YEAR with new ownership and an exhibit recognizing some Vancouver Island-based artists whose innovative work has made a resounding impact on the contemporary art canon of the Northwest Coast, yet who are not as well known as many other artists.
Mark Loria, a local arts and culture advocate, and his wife Mary Loria, a ceramic artist and educator, have taken over the gallery from its founder and director of 30 years, Elaine Monds, who established Alcheringa as one of the top Indigenous art galleries in the world. The Lorias are committed to supporting Northwest Coast-based artists, and Monds will help in an advisory role.
For the Vancouver Island Vanguard exhibit, artists such as TEMOSEN Charles Elliott, Delmar Johnnie Seletze’ and Mark Henderson will be a major focus alongside Beau Dick, Art Thompson, Susan (Sparrow) Point, Roy Henry Vickers, Art Vickers, Harris Smith and Pat Amos.
Of TEMOSEN, Professor Dr Robina Thomas writes: “Having been awarded the Order of British Columbia, and having international success, Coast Salish artist Charles Elliott’s (TEMOSEN) art work is like examining the old masters. However, a quick search for Charles Elliott displays minimal results at best. The tension in his elongated forms, his storytelling within the work, and the influence he continues to hold over young Salish artists is undeniable. He created the Queen’s baton used in the 1994 Commonwealth Games and a talking stick presented to Nelson Mandela.” TEMOSEN will give an artist talk at the closing event, March 2, 4-6pm.
Professor Thomas also mentions Mark Henderson (1953–2016), who “created sophisticated multi-colour silkscreen prints that have a whimsical, painterly quality to them. There is always movement, and flow, landscape and motion, form line and nature. It is pictoral in a way; he took the current style and made it approachable, recognizable, and ultimately fun.”
In all, over 30 works from the influencers of the burgeoning renaissance of Coast Salish contemporary art will be on display.
Opening on February 2, 4-6pm with smudging ceremony. 621 Fort Street, 250-383-8224, www.alcheringa-gallery.com.

Co-presented by Awareness Film Night and Transition Sooke.
Coming at a moment of profound political and social crisis, "What Is Democracy?" reflects on a word we too often take for granted. Director Astra Taylor comments on why she made this film:  "A word we say and hear all the time but rarely reflect on, "democracy" is both an ideal and a reality, a rousing aspiration and a devastating disappointment....democracy means the people (demos) have power (cratia).  But who are the people, especially in this moment of increasing hostility and division?"  Featuring a diverse cast- including celebrated theorists such as Cornel West, trauma surgeons, activists, factory workers, asylum seekers and former prime ministers, this 2018 National Film Board documentary spans continents and millennia.
Filmgoers are invited and encouraged to participate in the post-screening discussion facilitated by Transition Sooke's co-president Michael Tacon.

Photo: Mark Woods; courtesy Frye Art Museum. “I consider that the subjectivity is formed through the repetitive process of deconstructing the existing objects, and ruminating on such process. There is no specific aim to find a meaning, neither in the creative act itself, nor through the creative process. The totality of the meaning can be found in the continuation of the process. Therefore the reason for the creative act would be found in different inquiry. 
The obsession of pursuit of the meaning is unlocked by the pure enjoyment of the creative act. The obsession in turn would release the meaning of the search by forgetting the initial inquiry. There are innumerable ways to enact the process, however there is one answer to the result of the process. Within the answer contains two opposing perspectives that has no hierarchy. The point of view, both subjective and objective, as well as the scale of the perception would affect the location of the answer. I sense the distance to the answer gets ever more shorter as I repeat the inquiry. 
The answer certainly exists in the past and it could simply be overlooked. The past always has the potential for the new discoveries for me. Since the inquiry originates within my mind, thus the approach to look and find the answer can change completely. It shifts while depending of my state of mind. So it is both firm, as well as transient. Creation of the artworks comes after my deconstructive process on already existing canvas, separating vertical and horizontal threads.”
For Seattle-based artist Ko Kirk Yamahira, the finished painting is a beginning rather than an end. Painstakingly removing individual threads from the weave of the canvas, Yamahira deconstructs his paintings, turning surface into form. He often disrupts the geometry of the canvas’s hidden support structure as well, cutting out sections of the wooden stretcher bars to create detached segments bound by loose thread. Born in Los Angeles and raised in Tokyo and London, Yamahira moved to Seattle from New York in 2015. He has exhibited in galleries in the United States and Japan, both individually and as a member of the artist collectives Art Beasties and SOIL.

PLUMAGE: THE MAJESTIC ART OF BIRDS
Robert Bateman Centre, 300-470 Belleville St. 250-940-3630, Open 10-5 daily, www.batemancentre.org

Plumage – The Majestic Art of Birds is a unique collection of paintings, photography and sculpture spanning more than 150 years, that focuses on the ability for birds to reflect nature’s expression of colour, beauty and creativity. Drawing together historically significant artworks by major North American naturalists and artists, as well as contemporary images by local wildlife photographers, the exhibition celebrates one of nature’s most diverse and dynamic animal groups. March 7-June 15
Featured artists:
John James Audubon (1785-1851) was an American ornithologist, naturalist, and painter. Charles Darwin was a student of Audubon, and quoted him several times in “On Origin of Species”. Often cited as “the most expensive book of all time,” his major work was a colour-plate book entitled “The Birds of America” (1827–1839), considered one of the finest ornithological works ever completed.
James Fenwick Lansdowne, OC OBC (1937-2008) was a renowned Canadian painter, illustrator, printmaker and author. Born in Hong Kong but later brought up in Victoria, BC, Lansdowne’s works have been exhibited around the world.
Major Allan Brooks (1869-1946) was born in India, but emigrated to Canada in the 1880s, and became one of the most important North American bird illustrators during the first half of the twentieth century. He became a household name in Canada, featuring in numerous publications, including National Geographic Magazine and Taverner’s Birds of Western Canada.
Terry Venables is a locally-based wildlife photographer, with a particular passion for birds and the natural ecosystems of Southern Vancouver Island.

Quiet Nature: The Woodblock Prints of Walter J. Phillips
Quiet Nature: The Woodblock Prints of Walter J. Phillips is the third in a trio of exhibitions being celebrated at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria Season Opener on Saturday, March 9.  The by-donation, Public Open House will run from 10 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and also marks the openings of Fiona Tan: Ascent and Landscapes of Edo: Ukiyo-e Prints from the AGGV Collection.
The exhibition, on display in the AGGV’s Ker Gallery until May 20, examines the work of renowned British-born print-maker Walter J. Phillips (1884-1963). Phillips emigrated to Canada, settling in Winnipeg at the age of 29, he subsequently spent many years teaching art at the Banff School of Art (now the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity) as well as Alberta’s Provincial Institute of Technology and Art (now the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology, or SAIT,) before finally retiring to Victoria in 1960.
“Phillips is considered to be the artist who brought the tradition of the Japanese woodblock print to Canada,” said exhibition curator and AGGV Chief Curator, Michelle Jacques. “He had learned to make etchings from Winnipeg artist Cyril Barraud in 1915. How­ever, attracted to the “beautiful simplicity” of woodblock print­ing, beginning in 1917, he set out to teach himself its methods.”
During an extended stay in England in 1924-25, Phillips con­nected with William Giles, one of the most innovative British printmakers of the early 20th century. Phillips learned much from Giles, and through him, met Yoshijiro Urushibara (1888-1953), a Japa­nese woodblock printmaker who had moved to London in 1908. Urushibara had a successful career in London, and was influen­tial in the revival of colour woodblock printing in England. From Urushibara, Phillips learned Japanese techniques for register­ing (lining up) his paper on the woodblock, and sizing his paper (treating its surface with a solution of water, gelatin and alum so that the paper is less porous and the printed image is sharp­er).
Quiet Nature: The Woodblock Prints of Walter J. Phillips contains work exclusively from the collection of the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria.
Added Jacques, “although Phillips didn’t produce any new work upon moving to Victoria, his connection to the city has influenced the AGGV’s holdings of his work. There are 140 works by Phillips in its col­lection; nearly half of them were donated by the artist himself. In addition, after his passing, his wife, Gladys Phillips, donat­ed the beautiful 1957 watercolour entitled Experimental Farm, near Saanichton, to the Gallery.”

Ballet BC Returns to the Royal Theatre After Successful European Tour
Royal Theatre, March 15 + 16, 7:30 pm
VICTORIA, B.C. – After its successful UK tour to London’s Sadler’s Wells and theatres from Brighton to Newcastle, Ballet BC will return to Victoria’s Royal Theatre with innovative works by three next-generation contemporary dance makers. When Emily Molnar became Artistic Director of Ballet BC, she had a vision for the company: to develop and create new work and reach new audiences.
Molnar is a former member of The National Ballet of Canada, Ballet BC, and Ballet Frankfurt, and Artistic Director of Dance at the Banff Centre. Under her leadership, Ballet BC has become a leader in the creation, production and education of contemporary dance in Canada. Bold and innovative, the Company is a hotbed for the creation and performance of new works – more than 45 – by Canadian and international choreographers. Over the past two seasons, Ballet BC has toured to Europe and the U.S. playing to standing ovations and critical acclaim.
The company brings three very different contemporary ballet works to Victoria. A brand new creation by Molnar called To this day inspired by three songs from Jimi Hendrix’s Blues album that draws on the idea of finding one’s voice. Molnar collaborated closely with the dancers to create the movement phrases, taking inspiration from important moments in history from when the Hendrix songs were made: landing on the moon; Woodstock; Martin Luther King; the radical art collective; the Gutai group in post-war Japan and more. With Molnar, the dancers examined how their personal stories sat inside of those concepts.
Beginning After by Cayetano Soto is a hauntingly beautiful exploration set to Handel’s Giulio Cesare and Arianna in Creta that questions "Which reality is going to be your truth?" showcasing Soto’s skill and artistry like never before. Caught between memory and truth, driving choreography set to Handel’s exquisite score explores the often ambiguous, murky space between the two. Watch an excerpt of Soto’s Beginning After (https://vimeo.com/213601359). Soto served as Resident Choreographer for Ballet BC from September 2015 to April 2018.
Petite Cérémonie by Medhi Walerski is an audience favourite, commissioned specifically for Ballet BC. The sensitive and sometimes funny episodic work is like a quirky essay about the ways we can “box ourselves in.” Walerski’s choreography was created out of responses from the dancers after asking them “what life in a box” meant to them and how restriction can be a constraint and opportunity. White boxes on the stage and movement phrases represent people’s thoughts and both the connection and autonomy they need. Dance Europe calls Walerski “an original voice” who makes dances that are “out of this world…a dreamlike experience. A dream you never want to wake from.” Walerski created Romeo + Juliet this year for the company, which was supported in part by Dance Victoria’s Chrystal Dance Prize. Watch an excerpt of Walerski’s Petite Cérémonie (https://vimeo.com/131835089).
The community is invited to a free, pre-show chat at 6:50 pm in the West (Blanshard Street) Lobby of the Royal Theatre prior to both performances.

The Victoria Premiere Has Been Announced of Valdy Goes Big Band!
"Valdy remains one of the country's purest and most credible storytellers." —Toronto Star
Canadian folk icon and Juno award-winning performer Valdy is teaming up with the Victoria Jazz Orchestra and will be performing a big band-infused cross-genre show within the innovative rarer folk-jazz genre. Multi-JUNO award winner Valdy is a recipient of the Order of Canada and has received seven JUNO award nominations. With fourteen albums to his credit and having achieved sales of nearly half a million copies (four of which are certified gold), he received SOCAN’s National Achievement Award in 2005. 
The music of folk legend Valdy with treasured jazz standards will be featured in concert March 16, 2019, at the Alix Goolden Hall in Victoria, BC, at 907 Pandora Ave. Tickets are available now at the Victoria Conservatory of Music at 900 Johnson Street, by phone at (250) 386-5311 and online through Ticketfly.com:  https://www.ticketfly.com/event/1796780-valdy-goes-big-band-victoria-victoria/. Students and seniors’ tickets are $32, general admission is $37. The concert starts at 7:30 pm and the doors open at 7 pm.
Concert-goers will enjoy Valdy’s hits from the 1970’s until the present day including the favourite hits “Peter and Lou,” “Easy Money,” “Daddy’s OK,” “Highway 63,” and jazz standard gems for big band. 
"Few performers are capable of achieving the kind of energy Valdy generates on stage" — Macleans
The Victoria Jazz Orchestra, Vancouver Island’s premier big band has been featured at the Victoria and Nanaimo International Jazz Festivals. Led by gifted talent Canadian saxophonist and composer Monik Nordine, the orchestra features lyrical Victoria area jazz soloists like guitarist Rob Cheramy and tenor saxophonist Andrew Greenwood.  Nordine formed the band in 2013 and many of the big band’s first performances were held at Victoria’s historic Hermann’s Jazz Club. The Victoria Jazz Orchestra has teamed up with soloists, composers, and conductors from BC and other parts of Canada including Chelsea McBride, John Korsrud, Jennifer Scott, Jill Townsend.  Having been featured as a performer with VEJI, The Pat Coleman Quartet and The Jon Miller Quartet, bandleader Nordine has three captivating well-crafted original jazz albums to her name – not just to but over the moon, Departure and The Old-New Town. 
Valdy Goes Big Band evolved on Salt Spring Island as a collaboration between the jazz and folk communities and was first presented by the Swing Shift Community Big Band on Salt Spring Island in June of 2018 under the direction of powerhouse trumpet player Derrick Milton.  Songwriter Valdy has always had a deep respect for the jazz tradition and has been a closet jazz player for most of his life and is keen to perform his music with the Victoria Jazz Orchestra.  Joining the orchestra for the first time, trumpet player Derrick Milton currently performs with The Foothills Brass and directs Salt Spring Island’s the Swing Shift Community Big Band. 
Singer-songwriter Valdy meets the swinging sounds of big band with orchestrations of his original compositions as scored by saxophonist and VJO bandleader Monik Nordine, Capilano College jazz studies program founder Mike Reveley, bandleader and pianist Andrew Homzy, and trombonist/arranger Keith Ollerenshaw.
This memorable Victoria big band concert premiere featuring favourites performed by folk legend Valdy will be a hit for Vancouver islanders; a community strong in its support of jazz. Links follow for further information.                              — Kerilie McDowall

Six albums deep, Juno Award-winning jazz/soul vocalist Kellylee Evans has tackled everything from jazz to R&B and pop in such classics fight or flight?, Nina – her 2011 Juno-winning tribute to the legendary Nina Simone – and I Remember When. Her 2015 album, Come On, is a wonderfully refreshing album that comes on the heels of two nearly career ending accidents, including a freak lightning strike in her Ottawa kitchen. Evans was essentially unknown before becoming a runner-up of the 2004 Thelonious Monk Competition. Now, she offers views on love and loss in an alluringly rhythmic approach that is strictly forged by her jazz discipline. Kellylee Evans last performed in Victoria at TD JazzFest 2013. Experience this stylistic connoisseur live, in her element with Adam Cormier drums, James Meger bass, and Jonny Tobin keys, at Hermann’s Jazz Club on March 22.

Untitled (Just Kidding)

Screening/Performance: Jesse Malmed in person
Tuesday, March 27, 2018 @ 7pm

Deluge Contemporary Art
636 Yates Street, Victoria BC  |  deluge.ca Admission: $5 to $8 suggested donation
Untitled (Just Kidding) is an ever-evolving suite of films and performative interjections made over the last half decade.
The works play in creative reading, studied density, the one-(hundred)-liner, choirs, screen texts, the bootleg, the cover, jokes, speculative etymologies, accents, loops, the cinemagical, body swaps, poetry, citation and human voice. Conceptually engaged, language-intensive and visually mesmerizing, the suite scrambles somewhere in the intersects of conceptual comedy, dizzying illogics, the poetic plu-future and sustainable sourcing. Through deliberate mistranslation and strategic denaturing of languages and codes, Malmed revels in and reveals their extra-communicative potential as sound, as image, as object, and shift audiences’ concepts of the show, of the cinema.
Including and occluding collisions and confoundments between textual forms—written, spoken, sung and otherwise enunciated; variations on versioning; shifting registers of spectatorial engagement; jokes that are poems that turn out to be videos. Unexpect the expected. 
Jesse Malmed is an artist and curator living and working in Chicago. His work in moving images, performance, text and occasional objects has exhibited widely in museums, cinemas, galleries, bars and barns, including recent and upcoming solo presentations at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, San Francisco Cinematheque, Microlights, Echo Park Film Center, and the University of Chicago Film Studies Center. His platformist and curatorial projects include the Live to Tape Artist Television Festival, programming at the Nightingale Cinema, instigating Western Pole, the mobile exhibition space and artist bumper sticker project Trunk Show (with Raven Falquez Munsell), programming through ACRE TV and organizing exhibitions, screenings and performance events both independently and institutionally. Originally from Santa Fe, he earned his BA from Bard College and his MFA from the University of Illinois at Chicago, where he currently teaches.
