KIAC’s Confluence Gallery is a summer-long DIY community exhibition series in the Yukon School of Visual Arts (SOVA) gallery. Things are little different this year – more social distancing, less openings, same great artwork. Instead of four consecutive shows, one exhibition will take place from July 17 to August 8: “6 ft”.
This exhibition highlights the works of eight 2020 SOVA alumni in the intimacy of the SOVA gallery, following an unexpected creative hiatus due to COVID-19.
Another year is upon us, and we are excited to share what we’ve been up to. KIAC’s 2020 Annual General Meeting (2019 fiscal year) will be held online!
The AGM will take place Thursday, July 9 at 6:30 PM over Zoom.
All are welcome to attend the AGM but only KIAC members in good standing can vote and make/second motions, which will be done via the chat feature.
For our second installment of Community Features, we’ve reached out to Dawson resident Kelly Vittrekwa who will be performing at 7 PM tomorrow in the virtual play ‘Dominion’, with Gwaandak Theatre as part of the free 2020 Indigenous Summer Play Readings.
Kelly shares her passion for performing arts, her first forays into the wild world of Boardwalk Burlesque, and her very first job – working at the Palace Grand Theatre at sixteen years old!
As a result of COVID 19, upcoming artist residencies and gallery exhibitions have been postponed. We invite local artists to apply for use of the studio spaces for creation, presentation and professional development.
This year you can celebrate National Indigenous Peoples Day 3 times!
