For the summer of 2017 the area around Mahon hall will see an outdoor exhibition by the Salt Spring Basketry Guild to celebrate 20 years of the guild. There will be an opening night event on Friday June 23rd at 6pm.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Salt Spring basketry guild, their members have created a number of “Nests” around Mahon hall. Some on the building, some hidden in bushes and an interactive nest where people can contribute to its creation.
June 26 – September 20 2016
114 Rainbow Rd, Salt Spring Island, BC
Opening w/ Artists on Site:
July 8 6:00-8:00pm
LandArt @ ArtCraft presents four outdoor installations around Mahon Hall this summer. The artists install their work through the month of June. The official opening celebration of LandArt will be on Friday, July 8, between 6 and 8pm. At this time the artists will be on site to talk to visitors about their installations.
LandArt @ ArtCraft supports experimental and responsive landscape art installations that stimulate interest and community engagement with the arts and our outdoor environment. These installations present an outdoor extension to the ArtCraft showcases inside Mahon Hall, encouraging artists and viewers to experience artwork in, on and around our beautiful island gallery.
Installations are created primarily of natural and found materials. Attention is given to the environmental interaction and impact of the chosen materials. The installations have no negative impact on the site, during installation, exhibition or removal. All installations will be removed from the site at the end of the exhibition, leaving no trace of this diverse and engaging collection.
