Protecting our Coast: The Shifting Role of BC Lighthouses 
Opens at the Maritime Museum of BC
Lighthouses and their keepers’ original role has been to protect vessels travelling along the coast from crashing into dangerous shoreline. As technology and society continues to change, so too has the role of the lighthouse. Over the years, lighthouses have been put to different roles, depending on the needs of society. In the late 1800’s they served to support colonial development on the coast; in WWII they helped establish a defence system; and now, a new trend has started to rise. As we’ve become increasingly concerned with the state of the natural environment, lighthouses in B.C. are shifting into becoming ecological reserves or are gaining an environmentally-related protected status, with their keepers becoming the guardians of their stations’ landscapes and the surrounding wildlife. 
This exhibit explores this cultural shift through a timeline approach, questioning what is has meant, and what it now means to protect our coast.
“Lighthouses on our coast have such fascinating stories,” said Brittany Vis, Associate Director. “When we started research for this exhibit, it became clear that lighthouses have served additional roles in society than simply as navigational aids. We hope visitors will walk away from this exhibit with a better understanding of the evolving role of lighthouses and how they are being used today.”
Exhibit Dates: October 31 – May 14, 2020
 634 Humboldt Street, Victoria BC
10am-4pm, Thursday-Friday 10am-5pm, Saturdays

Deluge Contemporary Art and the Victoria Arts Council are proud to partner with Visual AIDS for the thirtieth annual Day With(out) Art by presenting STILL BEGINNING, a program of seven newly commissioned videos responding to the ongoing HIV/AIDS epidemic by Shanti Avirgan, Nguyen Tan Hoang, Carl George, Viva Ruiz, Iman Shervington, Jack Waters/Victor F.M. Torres, and Derrick Woods-Morrow.
The seven short videos range in subject from anti-stigma work in New Orleans to public sex culture in Chicago, highlighting pioneering AIDS activism and staging intergenerational conversations. Recalling Gregg Bordowitz’s reminder that “THE AIDS CRISIS IS STILL BEGINNING,” the video program resists narratives of resolution or conclusion, considering the continued urgency of HIV/AIDS in the contemporary moment while revisiting resonant cultural histories from the past three decades. 
Visual AIDS is a New York-based non-profit that utilizes art to fight AIDS by provoking dialogue, supporting HIV+ artists, and preserving a legacy, because AIDS is not over. In 1989, Visual AIDS organized the first Day Without Art, a call to the art world for mourning and action in response to the AIDS crisis. For Day With(out) Art’s thirtieth year, over 100 institutions worldwide will screen STILL BEGINNING, recognizing the important and necessary work of artists, activists, and cultural workers who have responded to AIDS while emphasizing the persistent presence of the epidemic.

Unveiling of Street Sculpture
outside Gage Gallery, Dec. 3, 11 am. 
Kick-Off name the Artwork Contest: Win a piece of driftwood art!
The Gage Gallery Arts Collective’s newest “member” will take up residence on the sidewalk of Oak Bay Avenue - adding to Oak Bay’s growing reputation as an art  destination. 
Stickman, his working title for now, is a creation of local driftwood sculptor and Gage member, Tanya Bub.  “Looking into the Gallery window Stickman represents the person engaging with art. What he sees triggers a powerful response, shown by the explosion of colour inside of him,” says Bub. 
At the same time, Stickman is himself a piece of art that invites passersby to engage, creating the possibility for small changes to occur inside of those who take the time. 
Stickman is born of the Gallery’s motto, “Engaging with Communities.” He invites touch, close-up investigation, and photographing. 
“Our purpose is to get people to stop and start a dialogue - with art, with themselves, with each other,” Bub explains. 
For starters, he needs a name, and the Gallery is holding a naming contest. To enter, send your suggestion to info@gagegallery.ca or fill out a ballot at Gage Gallery from December 3 to 22. A jury of Gage-artists will select the winner who will be rewarded with an original piece of driftwood art by Tanya Bub ($100 value)!  
Please visit www.gagegallery.ca for more information. 
You can see Bub’s sculptures, as well as new paintings by five member artists at the Gage Gallery’s new group show “Solstice Dreams - The Poetry of Winter” running December 10 to 22. Come meet the artist at the Opening Reception on Thursday, December 12 from 6-9 p.m.!

The Victoria Guitar Society presents Mak Grgic in the 2nd performance of its International Concert Series. Slovenian born Mak Grgic is emerging as a star on the worldwide stage. At the age of 22, Mak made his debut in Russia, performing Rodrigo's Concerto de Aranjuez with the St. Petersburg Symphony Orchestra. An expansive and adventurous repertoire attests to his versatility and wide-ranging interests: from the Baroque and Renaissance to music of the cinema; from ethnic music of his native Balkans to extreme avant-garde and microtonal music. Mak's extraordinary talents and tastes as soloist, collaborator, and recording artist are fueled by his curiosity, imagination, and boundless energy. In 2018 Mak was invited by legendary singer-songwriter k.d. lang to perform as the opening act for the North American leg of her Ingénue Redux Tour. Mak's recorded albums capture a probing and continuous exploration of the world of guitar and all its possibilities. His latest recordings, “Balkanisms“ for Naxos Music in collaboration with RTV Slovenija and “MAKrotonal” for MicroFest Records, explore ethnic music, microtonal, new music and early music on re-fretted instruments, such as a “zig-zag fretted Bach prototype guitar” that captures the temperaments of the Baroque period. Mak was one of the first students to apply for USC Thornton’s new Arts Leadership graduate program, which he incorporated into his doctoral studies in guitar. He has been a student of William Kanengiser and Scott Tennant of the Los Angeles Guitar Quartet, in addition to Brian Head, artistic director of Guitar Foundation of America. In the fall of 2017, he began the Artist Diploma program at USC, the first guitarist in the university’s history to be admitted to this elite program.

“Blue Moon Marquee has harnessed the best of vintage music that’s practically a century old and brought it into modern times. It’s part haunting, part joyous, and sneakily infectious.”
—Jim Hynes Elmore Magazine

Stemming from the Badlands of the Rocky Mountain prairies, Blue Moon Marquee is a self-styled jazz band that plays a beguiling mix of old Delta blues, swing, and ragtime. This authentic duo writes and performs original compositions influenced by anything that jumps or grooves. They received nominations for 'Best Indigenous Act' at the 2017 Western Canadian Music Award and for "Best New Artist" at the 2017 Maple Blues Awards, and their new album reached #1 on both jazz and blues charts. A.W. Cardinal, a Metis of Cree heritage, howls with distinctive smoky vocals while playing a jazz-tinged blues guitar, and Jasmine Colette commands the rhythm section with an upright bass, swinging with both feet and singing harmonies. Blue Moon Marquee's passionate performances and smouldering onstage chemistry is their trademark.

This special evening at Hermann’s Upstairs is a fundraiser for the duo to go to Memphis and perform as finalists in the International Blues Competition, a world-wide annual blues music gathering showcasing the top blues artists. Blue Moon Marquee won in the finals for the Pacific Northwest, held in Everett, Washington State in August. The December 6 performance will feature the duo A.W. Cardinal and Jasmine Colette for the first set, with the second set including Torben Holm Pedersen on keys and Morgan Onda on tenor saxophone.

Our backyard is bigger than you think.  75% of B.C. is composed of mountain terrain that almost nobody will ever see.  Living amongst us is a special breed of people.  They are undefined by age, gender, profession and background; the draw of the mountains is so strong that their lives must revolve around it.  After months of preparation, Martina and her 60 year-old mother, Tania embark on a 6 month, 2300 km. trek from Squamish B.C. through a relentless winter mountain wilderness to Alaska. And we meet others who share a passion for mountain life: a group of nuns inhabiting a mountain retreat; a photographer who is buried in an avalanche; an impassioned alpinist; a couple who has been living off grid for nearly 50 years; a focused snow artist.  Shot in cinematic detail by filmmaker Grant Baldwin ("Just Eat It"; The Clean Bin Project") and with a GoPro (charged by a solar panel) by Martina and Tania, this film is a reminder of the scope of the natural world that we often take for granted or even ignore.   We can understand why it is that First Nations people consider mountains to be alive and sacred.
