October 17, 2017, 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM @ The ACT Art Gallery
Contemporary First Nations artists, Sonny Assu, Corey Moraes, Carrielynn Victor, and Brandon Gabriel all feature an intriguing blend of traditional and contemporary storytelling in their artwork. In bridging modern attitudes with ancestral beliefs, their stories ensure that a provocative First Nations perspective is given voice within the myriad of Canada 150 celebrations taking place in 2017. Ensuring that ‘truth’ is recognized as the prelude to reconciliation, these artists render comic-book characters, super heroes, mythical beings and graffiti-inspired narratives as a critical and often humourous means of sharing both their personal and ancestral Modern Legends.
Saturday, September 9th from 2:00 pm–4:00 pm
Funding for this exhibition was provided in part by the Government of Canada with addition support from the City of Maple Ridge and the Maple Ridge & Pitt Meadows News.

If your artistic medium is the written word, join Golden Ears Writers for a series of adult events and workshops designed to build and nurture our local writing community. With a different focus each month, adults are invited to go to www.facebook.com/goldenearswriters for monthly details.
Live Action Anonymous Critique with editors Lesley Cameron, Jenn Landels, Susan Pieters, and slush reader & editorial assistant Cassandra Schoeber.
A panel of editors will provide short, verbal feedback on randomly selected first pages which will all be read aloud by Katherine Wagner (be sure to read the instructions below).
The editors will discuss their impressions: what works, what doesn't work and suggestions for improvement. The writer will NOT be identified.
Bring the first page or two of your manuscript (short story, article, novel or non-fiction book - no poetry) printed out. Make sure your name does not appear on it, and that it is double-spaced, a 12-point readable font with regular margins. Securely clip or staple the pages together if it is two, and submit when you arrive.
This is an adult event, but mature teenagers are welcome (there may be adult content - please be aware of this). No young children.
The ACT Maple Ridge opens the bar/concession for us.
