Join us for the first film screening for the 2015/ 2016 IFF Season!

Dr. Alice Howland (Julianne Moore) is a renowned linguistics professor at Columbia University. When words begin to escape her and she starts becoming lost on her daily jogs, Alice must come face-to-face with a devastating diagnosis: early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. As the once-vibrant woman struggles to hang on to her sense of self for as long as possible, Alice’s three grown children must watch helplessly as their mother disappears more and more with each passing day.

In The Gallery

Rebecca Vaughan
Vegan Taxidermy

Opening Reception: Thursday, August 27th at 7pm
Exhibit Continues Until: Monday, September 28th

Rebecca first fell in love with felt in Victoria, BC in 2008. She started off doing basic felted scarves and hats but quickly learned that her forte was creating big 3D felted tapestries. Rebecca uses wet and needle felting techniques as well as a variety of sheep, yak and goat wool.

Her inspiration for her pieces come from nature and her zany personality. Every piece she does is unique and cannot be replicated. Come, laugh and enjoy.
