Who are we? Unfamiliar Selves, a new two-person exhibition opening at Touchstones Nelson on Friday from 7 to 9 p.m. explores this question.

Jude Griebel and Tammy Salzl, whose work is featured in the exhibition, are artists based near Edmonton, Alberta and Montreal, Quebec respectively.

Griebel creates fantastic sculptural beings that bring landscapes and buildings to life, while Salzl brings a meticulous, humanistic approach to her intimate watercolour portraits. Together, they offer a diverse and engaging perspective on the uncertain notion of identity.

The exhibit will run from Feb. 20 to May 29, with an opening reception scheduled for Friday. Both artists will be in attendance, and will also give a talk on Saturday at 1 p.m. (admission free with entry).
