Visual artist and Nelson cultural ambassador Ian Johnston will open the series on May 3. Johnston, a stalwart of the Nelson art scene, a founder of Blue Night, chair of Oxygen’s exhibition committee, mentor to many and a role model for professional art practices, will share his latest art adventures and discuss his new body of work called Fine Line.

The next three presentations are of the literary persuasion. On May 10 the illustrious and multi-faceted Nicola Harwood returns to Nelson, this time to launch her new book Flight Instructions for the Commitment Impaired! Joining her is Michael V. Smith a writer, filmmaker, performance artist and teacher of creative writing in the interdisciplinary program of the faculty of creative and critical studies at UBC Okanagan.

On May 11 Oxygen presents Mitchell Scott, writer and editor-in-chief of Kootenay Mountain Culture and Coast Mountain Culture magazines.

Then on May 18 Oxygen will host Crime Time in Nelson, an evening with five of BC’s best mystery and crime fiction authors: Sam Wiebe, Deryn Collier, Dietrich Kalteis, Linda L. Richards and R.M. Greenaway.

Art Space Series wraps up on May 20 with an artist talk by the multi-talented Rhoneil Eurchuk.

Both musician and visual artist, Eurchuk will discuss her new work Nature/Cosmos that tells the story of one lunar year of life, death, healing, and resurrection.

The work, which includes a projected film component, will be touring this summer including a performance at Oxygen Art Centre in July.

Oxygen Art Centre is located at 320 Vernon street in Nelson (enter from the back alley). All presentations are by donation and begin at 7:30 p.m.
