Island Arts and Crafts Society : presentation portfolio

The file consists of one hardcover folio, which contains 19 loose artworks created by various artists associated with the Island Arts and Crafts Society (IACS). The portfolio is inscribed with the name "Mrs. N.P. Shaw". The portfolio was presented to Ella Gertrude Shaw, nee Lugrin (Mrs. N.P. Shaw) in March 1925 upon her departure from Victoria to Vancouver. Shaw was a founding member of the IACS and exhibited from 1910-1922 at the Society's annual exhibitions.

Postcards from the Pandemic

The file consists of 540 individual postcards that were created by the artist collective BOXCARSIX in the Victoria region during the COVID-19 pandemic between 2020 and 2021.

Postcards from the Pandemic is a collaborative mail art project of over 900 postcards that were created by artists in and around Victoria, BC in the depths of social lockdown created by the COVID-19 pandemic. The project was begun in March 2020 by members of BOXCARSIX Artist Collective to stay connected during lockdown. Each artist initiated a series of postcards leaving space in each one for another person to add and respond to. Each card was then mailed on to another artist to add to and potentially complete the postcard.

Each postcard has been assigned its own unique PDP number and is stored in its own folder. See finding aid for container descriptions.
