Dema Maksod Art Exhibit

Tuesday, May 15, 2018, 2-4pm

5th Floor of the VIU Library Building


Dema Maksod, a well known painter from Syria, has come to Canada and settled in Nanaimo. The Vancouver Island University (VIU) Art and Design Department has provided her with studio space on campus, and Dema will be exhibiting a number of her paintings throughout the summer in the VIU Library 5th floor public space.

Dema works mainly in acrylics, and her paintings speak to her lived experiences as a woman, an artist, a Syrian emerging from war, and a newcomer to Canada. 

VIU President Ralph Nilson will introduce Dema at the event, and the community is invited to attend, as well as all from VIU. We're delighted to showcase this important work.
