Anne Bachelier - De Cendre et de Plumes - Oil on canvas      -     5' x 3'   This painting can best be described as “painful beauty.”   There is a strong contrast between the radiant woman with the more eerie elements, although the two are reconciled in an enchanting manner.

Evelyne Brader-Frank - Male Torso - Soapstone  "My sculptures are inspired by the human body. The style of the three dimensional figure I plan to create drives my selection of media. Stone is the warmest of all and this leads to statues that emanate life."

Corey Bulpitt - Eagle - 138" x 32" x 32"   This piece is urban inspired.  Corey's master carving skills are apparent in the clean lines of the magestic Eagle with the ancestor face on the tailfeathers gazing up towards the heavens.  When he was able to salvage a telephone pole he knew this was where Eagle needed to perch.  The pole and the Eagle became one piece and a symbol for communication across culture, a symbol of Corey's own urban and Haida roots.

Corey Bulpitt - Eagle - 138" x 32" x 32" -   Corey's urban identity is rooted in his love for East Vancouver (the place he calls home when not in Haida Gwaii).  He wanted to pay respects to this place by taking the Eagle on a journey around his neighbourhood.  People just naturally started putting buttons and notices on it.  This gave Corey and I  the idea of having blank buttons and jiffy markers for people to put more messages on the pole.  Everyone loved the interaction.
