The Reach is pleased to launch a recorded video of the artist Deb Silver in conversation with curator Adrienne Fast, where they discuss Silver’s lens-based and public mural practices, and her approach to working with and in the natural environment. The video will be launched on The Reach’s YouTube channel on April 15 and will be available thereafter.
Adrienne Fast holds a PhD in Art History and Theory from the University of British Columbia (2015) and an MA in Art History from the School of Oriental and African Studies at the University of London (2000). She joined The Reach Gallery Museum in Abbotsford, BC, as the Curator of Art & Visual Culture in February, 2018. Previously she held curatorial positions at the Kamloops Art Gallery and the Vancouver Art Gallery. She has served on advisory and governance boards for Access Gallery (Vancouver), Evergreen Cultural Centre (Coquitlam), and the Abbotsford Arts Council (Abbotsford). She has also taught art history for the University of Western Washington (Bellingham), the University of British Columbia (Vancouver), and the University of the Fraser Valley (Abbotsford).
Deb Silver is a Fraser Valley-based photographer, printmaker and sculptor who holds an MFA from Emily Carr University of Art + Design (2021) and a BFA from the University of the Fraser Valley (2018). Using processes tied to changing ecosystems, her analogue photographs, dyed with lichen, celebrate the interdependent relationships between water, root systems, lichen, and fungi that create healthy, complex environments. Silver’s work has been exhibited at the S’eliyemetaxwtexw Art Gallery at the University of the Fraser Valley, The Reach Gallery Museum, and The Polygon Gallery in North Vancouver. Silver was a finalist for the 2021 Philip B. Lind Emerging Artist Prize.
