The Giants of Edmonton Mural Program celebrated Hope Hunter and the Boyle Street Community Services with this mural commission. The Boyle Street charity works to see all people grow healthier through involvement in strong, accepting and respectful communities. Hope is a mural inspired and influenced by First Nations people in Edmonton, and promotes the cultural aspects of inclusion, diversity, and putting people first.
PJ Gilhuly worked with Hume School students to create “Raven’s Eye View” on the side of Hume School. Makayla Taylor and the Nelson Youth Arts Action Committee also contributed to the creation of this piece.
PJ & Lyla Gilhuly painted this mural for the Nelson International Mural Festival 2020.
“PJ Gilhuly was joined by her daughter Lyla at NIMF 2020. PJ was born to Ktunaxa parents living in Cranbrook, BC, on September 3, 1975. Adopted by English/Irish parents, she grew up for the most part of her life in Ontario. After living away from her hometown for 30-plus years, she moved back to Cranbrook with her kids and settled in the small city and began a career as a self-taught artist. Most of her early sketches and charcoal work from depicting the human figure in scenes that suggest loneliness and suffering. Gilhuly’s expressive work is considered some of the most unique and appealing work and well represented as a Ktunaxa artist.”
PJ Gilhuly created “Raven Haven” for the 2021 Nelson International Mural Festival in the first-floor stairwell of the parkade.
This mural was created by Ric Gendron and assistants in 2022 on the side of Pharmasave Nelson.
“Ric Gendron is a “paint slinger” who creates expressive artworks that blend traditional Indigenous imagery with bold colors fields. As a member of the Arrow Lakes Band (Sinixt), he creates expressionist, strikingly colorful images that chronicle his experience, memory, history, journeys and identity. Gendron studied art at Cornish College of the Arts, the Eastern Washington University and in 1983 received his art degree from Spokane Falls Community College.”
