Welcome to the Art Gallery at Evergreen.

Serving the Tri-Cities for over twenty-five years, the Art Gallery at Evergreen (AGE) engages visitors through curated exhibitions, activated by public programs and dynamic school workshops. The AGE focuses on contemporary art and ideas explored by professional artists working in all mediums. We believe that art is integral to the fabric of daily life and seek opportunities to connect people with artists and the creative process.

About the Exhibition

Paths features artwork by twenty-two Canadian artists exploring paths, both real and imagined, through the mediums of painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, collage and printmaking. The exhibited works show us that a path can be used to communicate a direction, a line of thought or a plan for action. Paths can also be seen in representations of the natural world, taking the form of forest trails, migratory patterns, maps and waterways, as well as within our built environment. We can find pathways through abstraction by exploring gesture, pattern, line and form and we can seek our own paths of understanding through personal journeys and the creative process.  

While visiting this exhibition, we invite you to wonder with us: 
What path brought me here today? 
How do paths connect us to one another? 
How might we support the well-being of our lands and communities through paths of learning and action?
