Kitchen Conversations: Teen Talks
Share
Next Date:

Following Dates:
June 15
Admission:
FREE
Ages:
12+
Join us on the third Thursday of the month for a guided tour of our exhibitions followed by a lively Kitchen Conversation in our studios. Our exhibitions often explore politically and socially charged issues. Through these Kitchen Conversations (so-called because of the great conversations that can happen in kitchens), we hope to open the dialogue up to you—our community—so that we can come together and share perspectives.

In the spring, we hand over the reigns to our Teen Interns and foreground the youth perspective. What issues are important to Kamloops youth? What was it like to be a teen when you were young? What has changed—what should change? Through Kitchen Conversations: Teen Talks we hope to bring all generations of Kamloopsians together to talk about issues important to our youth.

Light refreshments will be provided.

May 11 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
To coincide with the Kamloops Wine Fest, join us on May 11 for a special Art History Happy Hour in which Interim Curator Adrienne Fast will present on the rich histories of artistic intoxication from around the world. Enjoy a glass of your favourite wine or beer as we learn about such topics as the wild baccanales of ancient Greece, the consumption of bhang in Hindu art and religion, and even Van Gogh’s tempestuous relationship with absinthe: just some of the many ways that human creativity has been inspired and fueled by intoxicating substances throughout history.

Art History Happy Hour: Artist's Talk with Ann Kipling

Learn something new while enjoying your after-work drink. Every month will offer a new topic on diverse aspects of art history presented by local artists, educators and researchers. A cash bar is available.

In February, we're joined by British Columbia artist Ann Kipling, whose work is currently on view in our central gallery. Learn more about her unique process which she has worked to refine throughout her career.

Ann Kipling lives and works in Falkland, BC. Her work is imbued with the beauty and quiet of this rural area. Focusing primarily on portraits, animals and the landscape, Ann Kipling’s process includes drawing similar subjects over long periods of time, recording subtle changes and shifts in expression within these subjects. This prolonged scrutiny gives Kipling's work an unmistakable intensity, fluidity of line and graphic complexity that approaches abstraction. Her portraits are psychologically revealing, retaining evidence of a closely observed encounter between subject and artist. Kipling admits to becoming obsessed with a subject, forming a bond, then interpreting it repeatedly until she exhausts its visual possibilities.
