“Retrospect” by artist Heather Von Steinhagen on NOW in the Community Gallery!

“Retrospect” by artist Heather Von Steinhagen on NOW in the Community Gallery!

This exciting multi-media exhibition will be on display from April 4-29th, at the Yukon Arts Centre Community Gallery. 

Homegrown from Whitehorse, Yukon, Heather Steinhagen’s Northern small town upbringing taught her the value of synchronicity with the planet and her elements. With German and Cree (from Cowessess Nation) parents, at a young age, Heather realised her passion for the arts which eventually prompted her first journey to Vancouver Island University, obtaining her Visual Arts Diploma. In Whitehorse, Heather immerses herself in the art community and is continuously exhibiting her artwork nationally and internationally. Combining her 8 years of experience in early childhood education and community arts, Heather completed a BFA with Distinction in Community Art Education at Concordia University, Montreal, Quebec.

Check out Heather's website to see more of her work! 

The gallery is open Monday-Friday from 10am-5pm, and during performances.  

Welcoming Teresa Vander Meer-Chasse to Jenni House!

Welcoming Teresa Vander Meer-Chasse to Jenni House!

Teresa Vander Meer-Chasse (b. 1992) is a proud Nalt’si member of the White River First Nation of Beaver Creek, Yukon and Alaska. Her beadwork is inspired by the strong women and the support of the caring men in her life. Teresa defines herself as an Upper Tanana visual artist, incorporating her culture in all the work she creates. 

During her residency, Teresa will be working on a new project, "Scavenging for the Many Faces of Raven"; in partnership with artist Nicole Bauberger, Teresa will be collecting tire remnants from the side of the Alaska Highway in order to create Ravens and raven-inspired sculptural works. They also intend to visit communities and collect stories people are willing to share of Raven. 

You can keep up to date with her projects by visiting these pages:
