  • This exhibition aims to lift the veil and introduce you to the work of three incredible artists and activists, each of whom has had to overcome unimaginable challenges to be able to function within the confines of our increasingly unpredictable and ever-shifting landscape. For Laurie Landry and Bruce Horak, they have both learned from the beginning to live and function in an able bodied world, with many people unaware of that Laurie is deaf and Bruce is legally blind. Robin Hodgson, on the other hand, is in the unique position of having grown up able bodied and then becoming a tetraplegic in 2004. At the age of 19 he broke his C5/C6 vertebrae in his neck. This injury left him paralyzed from the chest down, with limited arm and hand function. After several years of rehabilitation and adjusting to his new lifestyle, he graduated with a BFA from TRU.

    I am grateful for the trust and time each of these artists have afforded us to gain insight into their world. I hope the lasting legacy will be an increased awareness and sensitivity to those living with disabilities in our community.
