Blood Memories: Pieces to a Puzzle
Curated by local Métis artist Ken Rollinson
September 13 to December 19, 2014
Ken Rollinson is a Métis Artist with Abenaki/Mic mac and European ancestry. His show will feature carvings, illustrations and photographs documenting his research into the use of plants in aboriginal traditional medicine, through the use of meditational prayer and heritage tobacco. The imagery documents his spiritual connection and communication with the plants he works with as was done in the past. The hope is to help people to understand the belief that all things are connected through spirit and when that is respected the result is the sharing of information that enables survival for all.
