Luminous book signing and author talk

May 9, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

 Part memoir, part art instructional, part art history book, Luminous: An Artist’s Story as a Guide to Radical Creativity, a gorgeous new book by Canadian artist Linda Dayan Frimer, would be equally at home on a coffee table or in an art classroom. Frimer is currently touring Luminous and will be at the Nelson Museum, Archives & Gallery on Tuesday, May 9 for an artist talk and book signing.

Frimer is an internationally recognized artist whose work addresses the questions of culture, memory, trauma, and environmental stewardship. Luminous illustrates “the power of creativity as a response to catastrophic events, and the force it creates between humanity and nature in a world where climate change and deepening societal divides are fueling a worldwide fight for survival.” The book has recently been nominated for a Forward Reviews Indie Book Award, which recognizes excellence in independent book publishing. Luminous has received glowing reviews from writers across the province and beyond, including CBC’s North by Northwest host Sheila MacKay, who noted, “It is a beautiful big book filled with images of Linda’s work and so many stories of these various cultural and trauma healing projects that she has worked on, along with her own life story and family’s story.”
