In 2019, Open Space presents Blanketing by Jesse Campbell, the second annual installation in the stairwell to the gallery. Jesse is a Métis/Cree mural artist based in Victoria who has been involved in Open Space for many years in various capacities, starting as an emerging artist with the Indigenous Youth Artist Program (IYAP). He also, with assistance from technician Miles Giesbrecht, carried out the painting of Garry Neill Kennedy's Corrections last year.
We are thrilled to welcome Victoria-based tattoo artist and illustrator Andréa Searle as our featured artist for this summer’s MAKE/SPACE Mural Project!
We spent the first half of July eagerly awaiting the submission deadline, and weren’t disappointed by the myriad talented artists whose mural proposals graced our inbox.
