Exhibition: The Industrial Shoreline

June 11 - August 26

Ongoing – August 26
Exhibition: The Industrial Shoreline
Richmond City Hall
6911 No. 3 Road
The Industrial Shoreline showcases six large wall-hanging quilt pieces by Pender Island-based textile artist Susan Purney Mark, depicting scenes of working harbours in BC. Drawing from her experiences of living near the ocean and traveling along its coastlines, Mark’s work highlights the tension between the high demands of the marine shipping industry and the collective aspiration for a sustainable marine ecosystem, which human activities both impact and depend on. This complexity is conveyed through the contrast between the material choice of the intricate, subtle hand-dyed and hand-sewn fabrics, and the portrayals of rigid, patinated metal cranes and shipping containers.
