Emerging Métis artist Haley Bassett looks back at her childhood and family history in the Peace Region with Through the Forest, a series of works opening Wednesday at KPAC.
While primarily an oil painter, her work combines many mediums. In her practise she adheres to three guides - the work she produces must be authentic, it must contribute to contemporary art, and it must be accessible. Bassett also looks at reciprocation between herself and the environment.
"Subjects are repeatedly explored and are at times embellished, nuanced or simplified," Bassett notes.
There will also be an installation in the theatre area of the KPAC for art fans to enjoy. The opening evening goes June 26 from 6 to 8:30 pm, and the show runs until August 31.
The opening evening of Through the Forest will also feature musical performances by Lorissa Scriven and Wildwood Soul.
