Robert Bateman Centre
The Robert Bateman Centre is located upstairs in the historic Canadian Pacific Railroad Steamship Terminal building in Victoria's Inner Harbour (seen in photo above to the right of the flags).
The temporary exhibit entitled "Eyes of Society: Art, Traditional Knowledge and the Watchmen of Haida Gwaii" is equally captivating. Ten Haida and non-indigenous artists explore the meaning of place with respect to Haida Gwaii (Queen Charlotte Islands) in prints, paintings and sculpture. Seen here are works by Guyana born, Toronto-based artist Andrew Cheddie Sookrah.
