Visual Art Curators: Valerie Arntzen, Glen Alteen, and Marin Borden
July 28 – August 14, 2009
With our 2009 theme Faerie Tales, the Pride in Art Festival invited Queer artists to explore the myths and legends that have shaped us, and our community.
Light or dark, strange or powerful, these whimsical and sometimes political fables can have far-reaching effects upon our collective psyche. PiAF challenged artists to look back — into our childhoods, into our histories, into the mists of time — and explore the symbols and archetypes that have helped us to build Queer identities. The juried Visual Art Exhibition features works in many different artistic disciplines, and pairs established and emerging artists from across BC and Canada.
