Aging, Art and the Modern Elder opens at the 1401 Gallery
The show will run until October 24 and the gallery is open every weekend, Fridays 12:30 to 4:30 p.m., Saturdays 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Sundays 12:30 to 4:30 p.m.
Entry is free although Cranbrook Arts welcomes donations towards their exterior renovation fund.
This project is from 16 artists belonging to North Okanagan Federation of Canadian Artists. All the artists are seniors and through their art they wish to educate the general community about aging, elderhood and ageism.
This project aims to promote a reconceptualization of aging and highlight the opportunities inherent in the new longevity. These artists hope to help change society’s attitude toward aging and mortality from one of disease or condition to be dreaded to one of challenges, opportunities and joys.
Each artist is interviewed in an accompanying video which will also be running in the gallery.
If you have not yet visited the new 1401 Gallery, we invite you to do so.

Vancouver Island art councils work together on regional impact study – Parksville Qualicum Beach News – Parksville Qualicum Beach News
The Arts Council of Ladysmith is leading the way on a project that aims to get arts recognized as a significant industry on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands. With funding from the Canada Council for the Arts, it partnered with other councils in the region to conduct an impact study to show the value art brings to communities.
“Itis larger than many industries, like the lumber industry and the fishing industry in our community and it’s probably not recognized because many of them are individuals,” said Kathy Holmes, president of the Arts Council of Ladysmith and District. “People don’t think of them as a business and really, artists are their own business.”
The arts council partnered with the Digital Innovation Group (DIG), a collective of island arts councils, to bring together nearly 1500 artists and art supporters in the spring to assess the economic, social, cultural and health impacts of arts in the region.
“No other art council has even attempted to do this. It’s been a huge project, we are exhausted and what’s coming out now is really important,” Holmes said.
DIG will present the study’s findings at this year’s Vancouver Island Economic Alliance Summit this month. The study found one in 20 people in the region is an artist and over 90 per cent of respondents felt arts are foundational to economic, community and individual wellness, according to DIG’s summary of findings.
“We were looking for meaningful data to quantify the contribution of the arts sector to our region and are thrilled to learn that there are over 35,000 artists and that our sector generates almost one billion dollars in direct economic outputs,” said Ora Steyn, vice president of the Ladysmith Arts Council.
The Ladysmith Waterfront Gallery has been operating out of the old school on Parkhill Terrace for the last two years and Holmes said it has had a large impact on the volume of visitors.
“The Membership is still being very faithful. We worked very hard at keeping them but the public is not coming in droves so we are trying to build that capacity again but it took us a long time to get to 13,000 people a year,” Holmes said.
The gallery will be hosting Yael Wand, a Salt Spring Island musician on Friday (Oct. 22.) Tickets are on sale now on the art council’s website.
