The Tree: Literal and Figurative, an exhibition curated by Alison Keenan and Phyllis Schwartz, expresses the theme of nature as experienced in forests, the built environment and as raw material for industry. This group exhibition presents images and impressions of the tree in a variety of media. The artists from BestB4 Collective are graduates from Emily Carr University of Art + Design and the University of British Columbia. The purpose of this exhibition is to show the tree as a common link in Canadian culture that provides a canopy, which spans all cultures, communities, collectives, artists, and individuals.
Exhibiting artists include Ellen Bang (mixed media sculpture installation), Chu Yin Tak (mixed media paper installation), Pauline Doyle (mixed media figurative ceramics), Alison Keenan (acrylic on canvas), Anna Ruth (installation drawings), Edward Peck (large scale photography), Connie Sabo (mixed media sculpture installation) and Phyllis Schwartz (lumen prints on fibre).
