We’re pleased to have Meghan Hildebrand as our feature artist for July. Come by the kube to meet Meghan and view some of her latest work ‘Shelter Point’. Wine bar, light tapas and live music.
I am in awe of the place in which we live. Nothing reminds me more than walking through the woods of how much the world sparkles with life, down to the smallest details. For me there is a feeling of being protected by the forest as well as a fear of not knowing what’s beyond the trees, which is the atmosphere I tried to create in these paintings.
Meghan Hildebrand’s paintings are constant exercises in innovation and improvisation. With a unique vocabulary of symbols, she translates her northern coastal landscape into electrifying dreamscape scenarios, each image often alluding to a larger narrative.
Despite frequent reinvention, her works often return to familiar themes – the childhood dream, a sense of journey over land, and the ‘personality’ of place. Defined points of interest, doorways and inlets, invite the viewer to enter the image and join the narrative.
“Meghan is very much aware of the structure of painting in terms of space and colour, moving with confidence between the abstraction of surface and the illusion of depth embodied in the work to serve the lively content. She accomplishes this with fresh innovations for each work, and although her presence in undeniable, there is no sense of mere repetition but rather continuous expansion of symbolic ideas.”
Norman Yates, Canadian painter and mentor
Meghan has had over forty solo shows, including a retrospective survey at the Yukon Arts Centre 2012. Her work has been acquired by permanent collections including RBC, Aimia, and the Yukon Government, and belongs to private collections internationally. Now residing in Powell River, (British Columbia, Canada), Meghan arrived on the Sunshine Coast by way of Whitehorse, Halifax, where she attended Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, and Nelson, where she studied at the Kootenay School of the Arts.

An evening of conversation, connection and education for racial justice.
It’s 2018 and racism and misogyny are still every.damn.where. How do we address and heal from them? What can we do to be part of the solution?
This workshop is an opportunity to come together to have sacred and spiritual conversation about how we can lovingly acknowledge our privilege, heal our wounds and actively contribute to lasting, effective social change.
The evening includes:
We will carve out sacred space, honour our challenges and cycle that shit up and out. Folks will leave feeling supported and empowered in their journey to better show up for themselves and the collective, and most importantly, in supporting people of colour (particularly Black and Indigenous folks).
Open to all hue-mans, especially White folks wanting to learn how they can better support POCs, POCs seeking healing from the grave injustices in the world and/or all those seeking spiritual tools + practices to assist in committing to anti-racism.
The space is accessible to all and partial proceeds will go to WOC (Women of Colour) Talks.
Cost: $40 for our white guests & $30 for our POC guests; buy tickets here
Full + partial scholarships are available for those in need, just message me at: email@example.com
