The opening for three distinctly different solo exhibitions with a common bond will be held at Headbones Gallery on Old Kamloops Road.
The aspect that this trio holds in common is that each is actively multidisciplinary; bridging the distances between writing, dancing, choreography and the visuals arts while rooted in practices that are translated visually. They each have a committed practice in painting and drawing.
Cesar Forero is a Colombian born Canadian whose performances have been aired in Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Finland, Germany, Japan, the UK, and America. He will be travelling from Ontario to present Tarot. In the work to showcase at Headbones Gallery on Saturday, June 15, from 2-5 p.m., Forero has included dance, poetry and acrobatic movements set against a suite of 12 paintings that are based on the Tarot’s Major Arcana. The dance Tarot which he will perform at 3:30 p.m. with Alex Bouldreault is performed to a poem written by Forero and set to music by July Arboleda-Forero.
Janelle Hardy has taken a voyage into the internet and produced 100 portraits along her way which Headbones Gallery will present in the Foyer Gallery. The portrait subjects are all referenced from the What’s Underneath Interview Series, created by the mother/daughter StyleLikeU team.

Recently she produced the dance performance Bare Bones Dance Showcase at the Performing Art Center here in Vernon to much acclaim. Hardy’s River Dance Song will be showing throughout the duration in the Video Room.
