TWENTYFIVE EAGLES MOONRISE - CONSIGNMENT #20/50

Edition Date: June 2011
Artist: Roy Henry Vickers
Medium: Serigraph
Image Size: 18 7/8" x 12"

Twenty five years ago on April Fool's Day we opened the doors of Eagle Aerie Gallery. It was a very special day full of excitement in Tofino with many locals coming out tosupport this new venture. Many highlights have come over the years and the inspiration keeps coming from experiences on the land as well as conversations with people like you. We have welcomed over 12 million people through the doors and that’s a modest estimate. I’ve been honored with the Order of B.C. and the Order of Canada for my work as an artist. I’ve reached the age of 65 this year and feel like I’m just beginning to understand this process of inspiration and creativity. Early in my career I began to create images within images, layers of meaning, and am using this knowledge to create a work that celebrates 25 years of Eagle Aerie Gallery at 250 Campbell Street in Tofino, B.C. The edition is limited to 50 hand screened prints, 25 of which have the moon rising and 25 that show the sun setting. There are 25 eagles within the image for you to discover. This work comes with a prayer for at least 25 more years of creativity.
