“When we first explored the idea of hosting this exhibition, it was in 2018-2019, and the topic of human-made waste in our waterways was often in the news,” says Verrier. .
“Images of straws, plastic bottles, plastic bags and microplastics found in our fish, waterways and natural environment were almost daily. Locally, our shoreline at Lake Sylvan was also changing, affecting how residents and visitors were exploring the area.When visitors explore the galleries, we encourage reflection and discussion about our impact on the environment.
