Glogewjiwinu

Group exhibition

The title of our exhibition for the month of June is Glogewjiwinu. The word translates from Mi’kmaq to mean star people, people in the stars, or people of the stars.         (Beautifully, I may also be translated to mean “people dealing with the stars”.)

 

Exhibition curator, Phyllis Grant

Elder consultation for this exhibition is by Gilbert Sewell.

Artists: Felicia Grant, Tristan Grant, Christopher Grant, Greg Mitchell, Chris Mitchell, Jennifer, Alicia Murrin, Danielle Young, Ava Sewell, Raymond Sewell
