‘Quiet Stories from Canadian Places’ opens in Kelowna on June 2, 2017
At the Okanagan Heritage Museum June 2-September 4, 2017
470 Queensway Avenue Kelowna, BC
Over the past ten years, Regina-based artist Heather Cline has been quietly gathering stories from local residents in communities across Canada, collecting personal and regional history. Through a series of artist residency projects and public engagements, she did such diverse activities as interviewing farmers on combines in Manitoba, fruit growers in Vernon and school children in Ardrossan, Alberta.
The interviews inspired Cline to paint different geographical locations, connecting with the subject matter through other people’s experiences of place. Excerpts from the audio collection are interspersed among the paintings to create the audience experience.
