Location: Legacy Art Gallery

Event: This is an exhibition of two Nuu-chah-nulth men, "Fog God" Art Thompson from Ditidaht (1948-2003) and Hjalmer Wenstob from Tla-o-qui-aht.  Two artists, two friends.  Two lives together.

Featuring the prints and paintings of Art Thompson/Tsa-qwa-supp from the collection of the Legacy Art Galleries and interactive carvings by contemporary artist Hjalmer Wenstob/Tlehpik, whose work is inspired by and resonates with that of his teacher and friend Tsa-qwa-supp.  Tsa-qwa-supp taught for many years and inspired a number of artists who continue his work in this day.

Emerging Through The Fog seeks to honour and commemorate the life and work of the dedicated teacher Tsa-qwa-supp on the occasion of Tlehpik's B.F.A. from the University of Victoria's Visual Arts Department.  Curated by Hjalmer Wenstob with supervisory guidance from Williams Legacy Chair, Dr. Carolyn Butler-Palmer.
