A celebration of Indigenous art in New Westminster

Join Cedar Sage & Sweetgrass for the opening reception of Through Our Eyes on June 14.

New Westminster residents are invited to join in a celebration of Indigenous arts.

The Anvil Centre and Arts New West are presenting an opening reception for Through Our Eyes, a new exhibition by the Indigenous artist collective Cedar Sage & Sweetgrass, on June 14.

The Wednesday evening opening reception, which runs from 6 to 8 p.m., will take place at the Anvil Centre Community Art Gallery at 777 Columbia St.

The evening will include guest speakers, live music by drumming group Indigenous Women Rise Society, a cash bar and a chance to chat with the exhibiting artists, as a press release notes. It’s open to the public, and everyone is welcome.

There will also be a couple of upcoming opportunities to learn more about the art and artists:

  • On Sunday, June 11, you can hear from feature artist Susan L. Greig at an artist talk from 1 to 3 p.m.
  • On Sunday, July 9, you can hear from artist Maryanne Lindberg-Landrie, co-founder of Cedar Sage & Sweetgrass, at an artist talk from 1 to 3 p.m.

Along with Greig and Lindberg-Landrie, the artists featured in Through Our Eyes include James Groening, Uumati, Sheila Lowe, Kalum Teke Dan, Tara-Lynn Kozma-Perrin and Jerry Whitehead.
