Upcoming Exhibition at Pier 21

Canada: Day 1 Halifax / Pier 21
March 18, 2017 – November 12, 2017

Opening reception
April 11, 2017

Canada: Day 1 Halifax celebrates the experience of immigrants who’ve come to Canada. This exhibition feels particularly special to me as my Opa immigrated to Canada through Pier 21 in the 1950’s. Although I am not an immigrant myself, I liken my own journey of moving across the country by myself to that of my grandparents.  Although I am sure their journey was much harder than my own, I do understand some of their challenges just a little bit more.

Artists in the exhibition: 
Chun Hua Catherine Dong
Charley Young
Jennifer Akkermans
Josefina Maranzano
Shauntay Grant
Sheila Esfahan
Lin Xu
