A Panel Discussion
Saturday, November 1, 2014 @ 2 – 4PM
EMMEDIA Screening Room – 351 11 Ave SW
The work of women artists today has been impacted by the evolving history of feminist thought as well as its contemporary social context. How do women artists now construct their identity, social role, sexuality, and place in the world through their work? How does their work reflect their response to life’s passages, changes and challenges?
In a free-ranging discussion moderated by Mireille Perron, fellow artists Andrea Mann and Shelley Ouellet will offer excerpts from their work, ideas and reflections, along with featured artist Sandra Vida, whose most recent video work, Journey, will be on exhibition.

Opening Reception: Friday, October 24, 2014 @ 7-9PM
This new projected video installation features as a central motif, the image of a white horse approaching the camera in an endless loop.Â Overlaid on this image are constantly shifting layers of imagery gleaned from the artist’s photographs, paintings and drawings, as well as excerpts from her previous video works. The dream-like mood is enhanced by the natural sounds of wind and water, and an evocative violin tune. Creating a contemplative and immersive space, the interplay of images and sound may call up the viewerâ€™s own dreams and reflections.
