Meryl McMaster: As Immense as the Sky

A single subject, dressed in ornate costumes or wielding intricate, handmade props, stands alone in a vast, empty landscape. It feels dreamlike, otherworldly, magical. From the shores of Newfoundland to the Saskatchewan prairies and between, Canadian artist Meryl McMaster seeks out these desolate places and poses her lone model for her photography series As Immense as the Sky, which is being shown this fall at Touchstones Nelson Museum. The exhibition runs September 26, 2020 to February 28, 2020 in Gallery A, with an opening reception Friday, September 25 from 7-9 pm. Masks are strongly recommended and registration is required. Call 250-352-9813 or email to register.
