- Divine Sparks: Barbara Heller
September 6–October 8, 2018 In the latest exhibition at the Jewish Community Centre of Vancouver, Barbara Heller draws on her travels and experiences, her Jewish heritage, her family photos, and the mystical side of world religions to present a personal iconography. Heller’s work reflects her concerns about our world – one fraught with inequities, beset by senseless violence in the name of a “greater good,” the environment, and our psychological isolation from one another.
- Women’s Work: Reflections upon the History of Women in Textiles
September 12–December 30, 2018 In honor of the Textile Association of America’s Annual Conference, held in Vancouver, British Columbia, the Italian Cultural Centre Museum (Il Museo) will be hosting the exhibition: Women’s Work: Reflections Upon the History of Women in Textile. Sixteen of the leading female professional fibre artists in British Columbia have been invited to participate.

- Interface: The Woven Artwork of Jaad Kuujus
September 18, 2018–January 9, 2019 Held at the Bill Reid Gallery of Northwest Coast Art, Interface explores the intricate textile works and cedar weavings of Kakwaka’wakw and Haida artist Jaad Kuujus (Meghann O’Brien). Known for her ability to work in miniature and with very fine stitching, Meghann uses her artwork to both explore her Northwest Coast cultural heritage, and rebuild and maintain bonds with her community. She disrupts what is often seen as a distinct order between the contemporary and traditional by looking at how they are in conversation with each other in a non-linear way. Learn more on the gallery’s website.
