Don’t miss this opportunity to meet Sonia Robertson, a member of the Innu nation, as she demonstrates her visual-arts techniques. Her work is displayed in the exhibition In My Lifetime, which features the work of eight Aboriginal artists. Some of these artists have been producing insightful and provocative works for 20 years, while others have only recently come to regional and national attention. Their works address not only timeless connections to ancestral history, but also personal memories from the artists’ own lives. The exhibition is on until March 16, 2008.
