Serisa Fitz-James, who uses the pronouns of they/them, is ending their year as PoMoArts’ ceramic artist-in-residence with a solo show at the St. Johns Street facility.
Titled We Can Ask For More, the exhibition that opened last Thursday (Aug. 19) includes sculptures that explore their Filipinx settler-Canadian culture and identity while also paying respect to their pre-colonial heritage.
Tomorrow (Aug. 26) at 7:15 p.m., Fitz-James — a 2020 graduate of the Emily Carr University of Art + Design — will speak about their “therapeutic” artwork via PoMoArts’ Facebook Live page; the event is free and open to the public.
The discussion follows Tatjana Mirkov-Popovicki’s virtual artist talk (Coastal Spirit) on Aug. 19, and on Sept. 2, David Carey and Michel LeBlanc (Gnomes of Port Moody) will have their Facebook Live talk, also at 7:15 p.m.
The three displays end Sept. 16.
