Of Nature and Human Nature
Mixed media by Susanna Blunt

An artist of British descent, Susanna Blunt was born in China but grew up in British Columbia. Starting to draw at the age of three, her decision was made at that time to become an artist. After years studying in B.C. and abroad, Susanna spent several years teaching at the University of British Columbia and other institutions while developing her career as a muralist, designer and portrait painter, eventually traveling widely in other countries for her portrait commissions. She has exhibited in both group and one-woman shows in England, France, Italy, Hong Kong, the United States and across Canada.
 

Art History Presentations

Terry Fox MemorialNever Forgotten: Public Monuments & Contemporary Memorializing

In recent years the idea of the public monument has been transformed. Instead of a heroic statue on a pedestal, new monuments are conceived as environments that invite visitors to undertake a personal journey from grief to healing. In this two-part lecture series we will survey significant new monuments worldwide and trace the emergence of this new social and artistic ideal.

Presenter: Dr. Efrat El-Hanany, art historian, Capilano University

Mondays, October 15 and 22, 7–9 p.m.
Cost: $25 for both evenings or drop-in for $15 per evening.
Register at 604-925-7270 (Course # 51332) or online.
