City Atrium Gallery with Robin Ripley
The North Vancouver Community Arts Council is proud to announce a NEW exhibition space, the City Atrium Gallery. Through a partnership with the City of North Vancouver we have developed a new exhibition space at City Hall that focuses on  installation art, a form of three-dimensional sculptural work designed to intrigue, animate, inspire, and transform the perception of a space.

The Flower Series
Artist Talk: Monday, January 26, 12:15 - 12:45pm

Please join Ying-Yueh as she discusses the inspiration and process behind her work.

The Flower Series focuses on bridging two major craft media, clay and textile. This body of work was inspired by visits to fabric stores in the traditional market during a four-month residency in 2011 in Jingdezhen, China. She selected fabric patterned with two-dimensional flowers, and replaced them with three-dimensional porcelain flowers of her own creation. Ying-Yueh juxtaposed the two materials to address social issues such as equality. Before Mao, Imperial porcelain representing the social elites was used only for royalty. Conversely, the affordable and decorative fabric associated with the poor was used for household or ordinary dress purposes. These works contrast cheap labour and mass-produced fabric for the lower classes with expensive, hand-built porcelain for the upper classes.
