long-distance portraits

The opening reception of my upcoming solo show, Long Distance Portraits, with THIS Gallery is on Saturday, April 2nd from noon until 4 pm at 475 Main St, Vancouver.


My newest works depict a reflection on the separation of families, friends, neighbours, strangers, and – at times – a sense of future self through long-distance portraiture. With isolation comes a fragmentation of identity and through this work, including the interactive drawing activity entitled Empathy Station inspired by artist Juliana Bedoya’s curation with a local nonprofit, I’m inviting the viewer to reintegrate into community through observation or witnessing of each other and ourselves.


10% of sales from this show will be donated to Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre


This work will be available to view throughout April 2022. Please contact Shannon Pawliw via email at shannon@thisgallery.org to arrange your visit.


unsettled opening today

thisgallery.org - founded by Shannon Pawliw and Barbara Bryn Klare - is launching their first irl exhibition entitled Unsettled today at 475 Main St, Vancouver BC.


My work ‘seascape, unsettled’ is part of a series inspired by my home in the PNW. With joyful exploration of light and line in the natural world, this work seeks to observe relationship with and reverence for environment to encourage education of interdependency in the Anthropocene.


If you’re in Vancouver, hope to see you at the opening today between 1 and 5 pm.


For a private viewing, please email shannon@thisgallery.org
