Layers of Legacy, In the Year One-Fifty of the Dominion
August 4– September 10

Glen Hartle, photography
Valerie Bridgeman, pottery, book arts

Vernissage August 4, 6-8 pm

Nothing is less two-dimensional than the very personal understanding of legacy. This inter-generational, seemingly at odds, union of form offers a perspective both jarring and symbiotic.

Valerie Bridgeman/Glen Hartle Joint Artists’ Statement

Valerie and Glen have reflected on and often debated the nature of legacy. The very idea of legacy is complicated and often rife with doubt. The heritage received from our elders informs the experiences that we accumulate through our lives and from there becomes an eternal part of the evidence that we have lived, to be either accepted or rejected by those who follow. It is thus that our personal legacy evolves as we age, unique to each, layer upon layer, past, present and future. Valerie and Glen have leveraged their creative spirits and melded their collective experiences, hopes and doubts into an exhibit that begs you to consider your own legacy while peeking at the very personal underbelly of their own.
