ART GALLERY OF GREATER VICTORIA
Graham Thompson provided audio visual support for Artist Sherry Tompalski’s presention at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria (AGGV) on January 11, 2019. The AGGV talk featured their collaborative multimedia works such as the Seagull and Wrapped Woman Series.
The 2019 AGGV talk began with Tompalski’s Seagull Series, including a description of Seagull Sid’s Sing Along at Willows Beach in Oak Bay. Singers and Musicians included Terry Spencer, Mayor Nils Jensen, Arts Laureate Barbara Adams, Artists Sherry Tompalski, Gillian Redwood, Robert Amos, Christine Gollner, Arden Rose, Linda Darby and many more! See the Seagull Sid Sing Along at Willows Beach notes.
As well, the Seagull series included painted images of Seagull Sid. Tompalski’s anthropomorphic character was developed as a response to Dr. Louise Blight’s assertion that the local gull population has suffered a 50% decline in the last 30 years. For more information see the Sex And the Single Seagull show notes.
