The Vancouver Art Gallery has opened a large and exceptional exhibition of the work of Musqueam artist Susan Point. The show focuses on the theme of the drop spindle whorl, one of the traditional implements in preparing wool for Salish weaving, and offers the visitor a wide and deep look at the creativity of a prolific and brilliant artist. The range of media and brilliant creativity of her vision are extraordinary. The exhibition closes on May 28, 2017.
A fully illustrated 160-page catalogue, co-published by Black Dog Publishing and the Vancouver Art Gallery, accompanies the exhibition.
