Exhibition: Ditch

July 4, 2023 - September 19, 2023

July 4 – September 19
Exhibition: Ditch
City Hall Galleria
6911 No. 3 Road
Drawing from personal memory, collected stories, and archival materials, North Vancouver-based artist Julie Pappajohn’s exhibition Ditch commemorates her childhood growing up in Richmond from the 1950s to the 1970s. The title references the exposed drainage ditches situated in front of many houses in Richmond of that era. This “playground” brought her and her peers infinite joy and wonder. Pappajohn spent her free time exploring these waterways teeming with life—from eelgrass to muskrats—and even racing frogs caught in the ditches. Ditch features paintings depicting these enchanted waterways, a series of acrylic on Plexiglas works inspired by a DIY frog catcher, and a textual piece incorporating stories collected through a Facebook call for childhood memories of ditches in Richmond—which received over 400 replies.
