This month our featured artist is a familiar face to many of you. Biliana Velkova is the Arts Coordinator for the City of New Westminster, an an accomplished artist in her own right.
About the Project:
The Silver Centre Series (2008) is a project of compiled found photographs from a senior’s home. The photographs were of seniors celebration special events such as craft fairs, luau dinners, and Christmas parties. They were being discarded and were going to be lost forever. The artist consolidated this history into a set of six photographs to preserve this incredible archive of celebrations.
