The Cowichan Public Art Gallery (CPAG) will present a major solo exhibition of the internationally renowned Ojibway artist IceBear, titled The Modern Age Dreams of a Dreamer, from July 29 to August 19 at the Cowichan Valley Art Gallery, located at 2687 James Street in Duncan, BC. CPAG is also planning youth engagement opportunities to complement the show and will announce the details soon.

A public opening reception on Thursday July 28 from 4pm – 7pm will kick off the exhibition; meet the artist and listen to Ed Peekeekoot’s magical indigenous flute music with refreshments. Thereafter, the Portals Gallery will be open daily from Monday – Friday 11am – 4pm and Saturday 12pm – 4pm.

IceBear’s art invokes our imagination, and this exhibition provides us with a fine selection of his paintings, sculpture and mixed media, both new and on loan from private collections.
