We are all storytellers. Whether we encounter stories in books, newspapers, conversations, or on social media; we are confronted by many overlapping narratives in our daily lives.

However, it is our own inner narrative that is our most compelling means of communication. It is the product of this subconscious landscape, which has been represented visually in Storytellers.

Honouring the connection between artist and viewer, the Arts Council of the Central Okanagan presents artworks from Ashleigh Giffen, Maura Tamez, and Hagar Wirba. Their stories weave a powerful message of introspection and transition and highlight the path from darkness to growth and renewal.

Hagar Wirba is a recent graduate of the Digital Photography program at the Centre for Arts and Technology, she comes from a multilingual family and has lived in five different countries but is now based in Kelowna.

Ashleigh Giffen is an Oji-Cree multi-disciplinary artist originally from Squamish, BC, she is a poet and writer whose work focuses on the human condition and has recently completed the playwrighting program at the Vancouver Arts Club.

Maura Tamez is an interdisciplinary artist and an enrolled member of the Lipan Apache Band of Texas. She is based on the Okanagan Indian Band #1 reserve near Vernon and is currently completing her final year in the Visual Arts BFA program at UBC Okanagan Campus.

Storytellers is organized by the Arts Council of the Central Okanagan (ARTSCO).
