Two Rivers Gallery’s Regional Outreach Exhibition is an annual traveling exhibition program. Each summer a student is hired to help develop and manage the exhibition as it travels to three communities within the Regional District of Fraser-fort George: Mackenzie, Valemount and McBride. The 2018 Regional Outreach Exhibition,coordinated by Alex Pouliot, is:
Hold Fast / Let Go: Reflections on Home & Family, brings together three separate bodies of work that present different investigations on the subjects of home and family, and arise from a combination of objective inquiry and internal consideration. Frances Gobbi’s geometric watercolour and graphite compositions, modeled after the biblical quilt pattern ‘Storm at Sea’, tell the story of navigating the challenges of home-life and motherhood, as well as reconciling personal beliefs with those instilled during her upbringing. Mo Hamilton's intimate block prints depict houses in curious scenarios, often symbolic of transition. Her work positions home as an experience that is deeply individual and constantly in flux. Catherine Ruddell’s block printed and embroidered canvases feature repeating patterns of various plants inspired by her maternal grandmother’s stories and her own upbringing in Fort St. John, BC. Her work highlights the role that place and family history can play in the forming of one’s identity.
