Reconciling Self is a feature exhibition of new artworks by Connie Watts, a mixed media artist and designer of Nuu-Chah-Nulth, Kwakwaka’wakwa, and Gitxsan ancestry, based in Port Alberni. Her studio practice is characterized by the use of contemporary media and techniques that recast and re-imagine Northwest Coast traditions, and express the hybrid status of all cultures in the 21st century.

Wisdom they say comes with age.
Aging is a hot topic these days. Aging boomers consult experts about how to prepare for old age, how to look younger, how to save for retirement, how to maintain their brains and bodies at peak performance.
Artists are accustomed to living on the fringes of society - on the outside, looking in. We are typically less conventional, more experimental, more critical of society, often poorer, less secure, and more isolated than the average citizen.
