Tuesday, June 13, 6 pm: Get to know our Artists-in-Residence!

We are pleased to present, for the first time together, our three Artists-in-Residence at the Heliconian Club this past season, representing Visual Art, Literature and Dance.  They are collaborating on an inspiring event being presented on Tuesday, June 13 at 6 pm at the Club.

Anja Karisik will show a short video of Haida Gwaii, British Columbia and describe this area’s influence on her work on display in her solo art show, “A Lasting Presence”, which runs throughout June.

Marcia Walker will read a segment from her novel in progress,  speak about her experience in Banff, and discuss the purpose and experience of residency, as well as how projects transform over time.

Dancer and choreographer Ashley Ann Burton will give a solo performance followed by a Q&A, and conduct a participation seated event drawn from her immersion in the work of American modern dance pioneer, Isadora Duncan.

Light refreshments will be served at the start of the evening. Donations appreciated.

Please come to celebrate our talented Artists-in-Residence!
