Cheryl Hunter & Vanessa Lowe @ ContainerArt Vancouver 2011. Artist Statement

Artist’s Statement (abridged): It all started with the stunning photographs taken by Vanessa’s father in the late 1940’s, depicting Vancouver and the famous wrought iron gate erected by the CPR at Waterfront Station sometime around 1914. These photos convey family history in a rich visual narrative. (…) In “Port of Call”, history, as portrayed in photos, has been combined with history, as portrayed in quilts and other artifacts.
