cnéwelc: “follow a trail”

An exhibition of intergenerational Indigenous art.

Curated by Csetkwe Fortier and Erin Stodola

The Salmon Arm Museum at R.J. Haney Heritage Village co-curated with Secwépemc/Syilx artist, Csetkwe Fortier, present the exhibition cnéwelc: “follow a trail”. The exhibition showcases the late Daphne Odjig, who helped clear the path for today’s Indigenous artists such as co-exhibiting Secwépmec artists Tania Willard, Manuel Axel Strain, Sean Stiller, and Csetkwe Fortier. This collection of Odjig’s works have been generously entrusted for this special exhibition by members of the Shuswap community.

Viewers are invited to walk through the Montebello Gallery on a trail of aromatic cedar and take in moments of reflection with art created from and for Indigenous resistance, relationship to land, kinship and resilience. Follow the exhibition’s path and experience Odjig’s renowned originals and prints, Willard’s captivating multi-medium instillations, Strain’s visionary oils on canvas, Stiller’s immersive film, and Fortier’s sentimental acrylics on linen.

cnéwelc will run from May 17 through September 16, 2023 in the Montebello Gallery, located within the McGuire General Store building.
