at The SOVA Gallery


Confluence Series at The SOVA Gallery
is a volunteer-run community gallery operating during the summer months in the Yukon School of Visual Arts. In contrast to KIAC’s professional gallery, the ODD Gallery, this gallery features the work of local and regional artists at all stages of their career. Past exhibitions have included painting, photography, installation, sculpture, found art, and thematic group shows. Every summer, the gallery presents a series of exhibitions with an accompanying opening reception for each show.

The SOVA Gallery
is located in the Yukon School of Visual Arts at 3rd and Queen in Dawson City.

 The 2014 Confluence Season will be announced in early April 2014.

July 18-August 11
Opening: July 18, 5:30pm

In the first decade of the 20th century, the Grand Trunk Railway embarked on constructing a more northern transcontinental railway across Canada. An unknown person or persons took it upon themselves to systematically name each siding along the line in alphabetical order east-to-west between Manitoba and Alberta. 93 stations were named in the scheme, completing at least five rounds of the alphabet. This became known as “The Alphabet Railway”.

The railway, a symbol of the modern, industrial age, was a key component if forging artificial political boundaries across geographical landscapes. The imposition of an alphabetical structure emphasized man attempt at “mastery” over nature. This exhibition illustrates the effects of nature and time on man-made objects across a landscape. 55 of these railstops and sidings as were located, recorded on digital image, HD video and black and white hand processed 16mm film last summer.
