  1. Dear Charlene,
    I am writing to let you know about an exciting new show MoCNA is planning for June 2017. The exhibition features contemporary Indigenous artists who use various forms of fiber art media to make their statements. If you are interested please let me know ( I will be in the Vancouver for artist studio visits next week. I look forward to hearing from you! Manuela
