Alsig8ntegkw: Abenaki "The river with the empty cabin"
Featuring the works of Abenaki artists Carmen Hathaway, Joyce Panadis and Christine Sioui-Wawanoloath, this exhibition reminds us of the ancient and contemporary presence of the Abenakis First Nation and the bonds that have been woven over the years.
On reflection of the stages we pass through on our journey.

I was inspired to create this on reflecting on the experience of traumatic loss.
The bear is roaring its pain at the four eagle spirits who are leaving her behind.
She grieves the loss of her art mentors, and elders.
They carry her spirit with them, to be reunited in another time.
