Nourish: A Celebration

January 6, 2022 @ 11:00 am - January 27, 2022 @ 4:00 pm

With photographs by local commercial food photographer and stylist, owner of Polaris Creative, Jules Sherred, NOURISH is a celebration of local food and beverage producers, farmers, vineyards, and the restaurants who kept us fed during COVID-19 in the face of impossible circumstances. Printed on canvas, the majority of the images will feature Cowichan and Gulf Islands growers, producers, and restaurants, with one image paying tribute to crops lost due to wildfire. Polaris Creative is part of the Island Good brand. Polaris Creative proudly sources ingredients from Cowichan Valley farmers, for both commercial work and fine art work.

TALK: As part of the show, Jules Sherred will give a talk Jan.15 at 2 pm, to discuss his own journey with food, culture, and disability. Jules will delve into the inspiration for the NOURISH exhibit, why he chooses photography as a storytelling medium, how he approaches his subjects, and his personal story about food and culture, and how this story influences all aspects of his work, including his upcoming cookbook CRIP UP THE KITCHEN: REALISTIC TIPS, TRICKS, AND RECIPES FOR THE DISABLED KITCHEN to be published Spring 2023 by TouchWood Editions. The talk will be both live in-person and streamed. To watch online https://teams.microsoft.com/registration/MBDqLjP-2Uudta-fIU1TOg,D1-_lPm1_0qSMPx3KgYFqA,OLcexBDCqUuUKU_WwEOGLQ,xPFkhWeW-EKI3CLka9UkMw,yFtxKMoTT0CywfL9sklV7g,uns305tRL0qNgvNlsi9W0A?mode=read&tenantId=2eea1030-fe33-4bd9-9db5-af9f214d533
