'Homeward' in Alert Bay: Part 2

 The final installation!

This one was changed after the opening, the bones weren't working inside the boat so I took them out.

'Homeward' Loonie Auction

My favourite element of 'Homeward' is the community effort that it took to raise the funds to get the show to Alert Bay. When Sarah said I should host a Loonie Auction in Vancouver, my first response was, "Whats that?" and then, "That won't work down here."

I was wrong. I have a wealth of friends who generously donated artworks and other items. The quality of objects for raffle was incredible. And so many people came out to support!

Conceptually, it worked really well with our show. Our desire was to connect both of the places that we call 'home'. I hope that one day the show will make the trip to Vancouver.
