‘Arctic Winter Dreams’

Northern youth participate in the Arctic Winter Games, gathering in cities across the circumpolar north. The Arctic Winter Games were held in Yellowknife in 2008. As an arts volunteer, I was inspired by the youth as they competed in numerous winter sports around the city. I chose the energy of the aurora to illustrate the dreams of youth becoming athletes, developing their skills and team work, and traveling by plane, to compete around the north.

Location: Northern Frontier Visitors Centre, Yellowknife, NT
Showing: March and April 2012
Opening: 11:00am to 4pm, April 14th, 2012

Garden of Hope by Ann Timmins ©

The inspiration for this painting is the group of caregivers who gather to plant the yearly garden, the ‘Garden of Hope’. I was the primary care giver during my infant’s cancer recovery. During the journey as her caregiver, I was uplifted by my family, the awakening of a new day, tranquil moments taking a walk outdoors, and the many random acts of kindness. My daughter did not suffer through her cancer treatment. Understanding this we did not impose our anxiety on her, we carried on with our jobs, and made the most of our family time together.

Later I realized that my personal resources weredepleted, I needed to find my healing process, which led me back to self expression and healing through art. I hope this painting will encourage other caregivers to find their path to recovery.

This painting recognizes Caregivers, that carry outmany selfless acts of caring and giving of themselves, both to their loved ones and also to the many people that they help without knowing them personally.
