As part of Gibsons Public Art Gallery's summer 2022 exhibition, artist Shirley Wiebe proposes a collaboration with local Sunshine Coast community residents. All images will become part of a large paper sculpture that transforms and reconfigures imagery into a panorama of colour at the GPAG in late August.
Many of us have rediscovered nearby natural surroundings as a source of comfort and renewal. 'Incidental Archive' brings these moments of personal recollection together.
Please submit up to 3 digital files to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Incidental Archive is an installation-based exhibition composed of three main elements, each made up of numerous reconfigured pieces. The work reveals a process of considered transformation.
'Nearby', one of the proposed works, invites Sunshine Coast residents to contribute nature photography as the basis for a mural which artist Shirley Wiebe will construct on site, transforming the submissions into one reconfigured landscape.
Gibsons Public Art Gallery is located at 431 Marine Drive in Gibsons, BC, just a 40 minute ferry ride from Vancouver on the Sunshine Coast.
To broaden the discourse between disciplines, hcma's art residency program stimulates discussion and challenges preconceptions about architectural and design practice.
The invitation to an artist is to challenge, spark curiosity and help ask better questions about the world around us. www.HCMA.ca/tilt/artist-in-residence
I will be working with hcma's offices in Vancouver, Victoria and Edmonton to develop three interconnected site-specific works that reflect on what can unite and bring communities together.
Virtual Launch March 11, 2021
The Gallery invited submissions that redirect the eye away from the iconic photographic image toward new forms and representational culture. The aim is to assemble and display alternative representations that lead away from homogeneity toward an architecture and culture that claims no specific centre. The abolition of the centre, and its replacement with the void is a position in architecture and culture that redirects perception to the Periphery.

Upper Floor is a commissioned work that remembers the gutted state of a family owned building at the foot of Main Street. The century-old structure is currently being lovingly rebuilt from the inside out.
