Splendid String Exhibition Tour

Cynthia Fuhrer

Tour: Thursday April 18 at 12:05 pm

Edmonton artist Cynthia Fuhrer explores the deep-rooted connection that exists between human and animal-kind. Captivating scene, which oscillate between dreams and mythical wonderlands, place the artist’s children alongside Canadian animals. Cast as protectors, children watch over their albino animal counterparts. Fuhrer prompts us to celebrate the magic in nature, willing us to protect and treasure it, rather than seek it out to destroy it.

Please join us for an immersive 25-minute tour at noon on Thursday April 18, as we discuss Fuhrer’s fantastical, yet poignant, paintings.

Light refreshments provided.

Please RSVP to exhibitions@artsandheritage.ca
