Luke Parnell Artist Talk at the Seymour Art Gallery

Thursday, November 14, 2013

Haida/Nisga’a artist Luke Parnell leverages his traditional skills into the realm of contemporary politics and social mythologies. His works, which are beautifully crafted, are often allegorical, alluding to deep-running issues in education, repatriation, and cultural identity today. In August, Parnell gave an artist talk at the Seymour Art Gallery, which hosted a solo exhibition of his work curated by Rachael Lafo of the Richmond Art Gallery. Watch the video to get a glimpse into Parnell's ideas and process.

The North Shore News also wrote an illuminating feature on Parnell's exhibition. Journalist Erin McPhee interviewed both Parnell and Lafo about Parnell's debut exhibition. Read the entire piece on the North Shore News website.
