About the book

The extreme west coast is often characterized as the most out there edge of Canada and has become known internationally for artists residing in the region and giving it their own particular flavor. Living Artfully: Reflections from the Far West Coast offers unique perspectives and insights to the interrelationship of creativity and geography through intimate portrayals about the lives of artists. Writers, painters, carvers, and performers reflect on the private spaces of the arts inner worlds and natural environments and the public spaces for exhibiting, performing and sharing. Artists delve into their life journeys, the struggles and challenges as well as the joys and rewards of pursuing expression out here. Forty-two emerging and established artists have contributed to this collection, including award-winning First Nations playwright and poet Janet Rogers; painter, writer, and arts advocate Robert Amos; internationally noted artists Avis Rasmussen and Mark Hobson; renowned author Susan Musgrave; award-winning film maker Velcrow Ripper; and from the academy, dancer and educator Celeste Snowber, professor emeritus Bill Zuk and many more voices that shape what it means to live artfully on the far west coast."




To slip into Living Artfully: Reflections from the Far West Coast is to get swept away in the Tsunami of creative inspiration as these artists reach down for the wild coast inside of them. It is a vicarious journey into the magic where you'll meet a welcoming committee of wolves and a whale that literally glows with bioluminescence. Feel the longing as Gael Duchene seeks out the night and Libbie Morin confronts the blackening storm. Chuckle as they realize the true bargain of dispensing with "city goggles" as Michael Elcock agrees to help repair a roof and Michael Scott Curnes lures a lover away from mainland comforts. Savour the healing place in stories that bring poets Christine Lowther and Lisa Shatzky back to themselves and allow Keven Drews to take his own measure in his moving Letters to Dad.--Erin McMullan is editor of One Mush: Jamaica's Dogsled Team, Sambaa K'e Then and Now
