Art and nature are coming together.

Victoria Gibson, the Caetani Centre’s Fresh Air artist, will speak at the Allan Brooks Nature Centre Thursday at 7 p.m.

During her residency, Gibson will be collecting stories and reflections from the people of Vernon.

“The theme, “what we once were, we are not now” can be applied to historical, environmental, social or other aspects that will be discovered by Victoria’s research into Vernon’s past that may be contrasted with present day Vernon,” states a release.

“The artwork will emerge as the result of applying the theme to her research, then deciding the best method to convey the multitude of aspects in an artistic presentation.”

If you would like to participate in any part of this project, with your bird videos, or stories of Vernon, or as part of a final performance, contact vixmedia01@gmail.com or text 1-778-885-2123.
