The resulting works, several of which will be shown in the gallery, are by local artists Jerry Whitehead, Richard Tetrault and Cody Lecoy. These artists have also collaborated on mural projects in the Downtown Eastside. Jerry and Richard collaborated with Haisla Collins and others on the massive Through the Eye of the Raven mural located on the west wall of the Orwell Hotel. Last year, Jerry and Richard worked on the mural called Radius, located in the courtyard of Firehall Arts Centre, at Cordova and Gore. An addition to the art exhibition will be a series of paintings by Whitehead and Lecoy, and painter Haisla Collins. The Big Print Project was co-produced by Creative Cultural Collaborations Society and New Leaf Editions. A presentation of the video that was made of The Big Print Project will be shown during the Artist Talk on Sat Nov 8.
