Precious Things: Collected and Kept is a free one-night art exhibition examining how our most precious objects foster a sense of belonging and influence the creative process.
Charlotte asked people across Vancouver for submissions of their most precious object, along with a description of its personal significance. She re-created these objects in her signature mixed-media style, capturing their spirit while transforming them into something new as art objects. These art objects inspired large abstract works, vaguely referencing the forms of the original objects, but still retaining their essence.
This show addresses themes of community and emotional connection while providing a unique glimpse into an artist’s process. The work will be presented on June 22nd between 6-10 p.m. at 434 Columbia St.
Cash bar, free homemade cookies made by Charlotte's mom.
