WAR: A Personal Response Exhibition October 16 - November 29, 2018

Articulation is joining the Sidney Museum in commemorating the 100 year anniversary when the Armistice was signed ending World War I in Europe. 
Six Articulation members will each install a body of work exploring their personal war experiences.
The Sidney Museum will have many artefacts on display illustrating Canada's involvement in past wars up to today's UN Peace Keepers.
The exhibition is in the Sidney Museum, 2423 Beacon Avenue, Sidney BC V8L 1X5. 
It opens October 16th and closes November 29, 2018.
Artist-led tours are available. Please call Alyssa, Assitant Director, at 250 655 6355 to book a group tour.

Articulation visits the war memorial in Weyburn Saskatchewan.
Unlike other projects, the individual WAR bodies of work did not come out of a specific annual Study Session. Over the past few years, Articulation members have visited war-related museums and memorial sites whenever they have been together to do research.


Each Articulation member responded to different stimuli as they explored their own personal memories of war and how it has affected their family.

One of the more memorable visits was the Weyburn Mental Hospital Museum.
