About the Show:
People are moving toward a plant-based diet for many reasons including personal health as well as environmental disquiet; but for a group of visual artists featured in an upcoming exhibit at Ladysmith’s Waterfront Gallery, a large part of their decision to not eat animals rests with the animals themselves.
Fork off: Animals, Art, & Advocacy will showcase the work of 9 accomplished and award-winning artists all of whom place themselves firmly on the vegan/vegetarian continuum. Dianna Bonder, Heather Cameron, Tammy Hudgeon, Caroline James, Judy Mountjoy, Leslie Norgate, Sheila Norgate, Zena Rogak and Mia Tremblay, may be diverse in their choice of mediums but they are united in their concern for the plight of animals. Each has created new artwork specifically for this exciting and ground-breaking exhibition.
The show, proudly presented by Gabriola-based Vegeteers and generously supported by donors, will feature a talk by artist/performer Sheila Norgate recounting her own meandering path towards a plant-based life (2:00 pm Saturday, June 29). Please join us for this stimulating, challenging, and heartfelt exhibition. For more info, please call Sheila Norgate @250.247.7308 or email snorgate [at] shaw [dot] ca.
