Rain Shadow is the latest exhibition opening at Nanaimo Art Gallery Ten artists from the Pacific Northwest will explore the experience of a shared geographic landscape through diverse backgrounds and a variety of media. Rain Shadow will challenge the visitors to Nanaimo Art Gallery to explore their sense of place in the world. Jonathan Forrest, Todd Gronsdahl, lessLIE, lichen with Natassia Davies and Danielle Stevenson, Jerry Pethick, Anne Ramsden, Charlene Vickers, and Eliot White-Hill Kwulasultun come together to explore the concept of a Rain Shadow. Storm clouds buttress themselves against windward slopes, releasing precipitation before dissipating over summits and across leeward landscapes The western shores of Vancouver Island and the mainland become saturated, while unburdened clouds scatter lightly and interact with other weather patterns over the island’s eastern coastline. Here on Snuneymuxw territory this effect manifests in a mix of sunshine, periodic showers, and an abundance of rainbows. Through painting, sculpture, video, and illustration, artists in Rain Shadow consider the places they live, and those carried from afar. Artworks engage notions of belonging, the hubris of marking and controlling land, light pollution, host/guest relationships, and healing the post-industrial landscape. Occurring one year into Covid-19, the pandemic’s effects on place and movement are present directly and indirectly within the exhibition. The Nanaimo Art Gallery is located at 150 Commercial Street in Downtown Nanaimo. We are open Tuesday to Saturdays, 12 - 5 pm every day except Saturdays, 10 am – 5 pm. Admission to the Gallery is by donation and for more information on our events, programs, and Covid-19 safety procedures our website is www.nanaimogallery.ca.
