Salt Mist Seasons: Watercolours by Rosemary Hanna

July to October  2015

This display of watercolour prints and original paintings by Rosemary Hannah is inspired by the fishing boat Salt Mist. The show follows the ship through different seasons and traces the marinescapes from Vancouver and the southern Gulf Islands up the coast of British Columbia.

This exhibition invites visitors to embark on a self-guided south-to-north coastal sea voyage: highlighting ships, salty glimpses into local histories, and hidden anchorages. 

MV Salt Mist (ex-Kagome), centerpiece of this exhibit, was among the swiftest of night vessels plying straits southbound with her cargos of contraband liquor. Explore BC’s coast from the southern Gulf Islands to Discovery Passage and North. Marine artwork in this exhibit captures the imagined moods of coastal history, inspired by early mariners, shipbuilders and those who love the music of the waves.
