National Indigenous History Month Event: Paint Night with Salisha Old Bull at Pavilion Cowork

Tuesday, Jun 28, 2022

CREW Vancouver welcomes Salisha Old Bull for a watercolour paint night in honour of National Indigenous History Month!

Salisha (Salish / Crow) is an Indigenous artist and creates a wide array of art including beadwork, painting, photography, digital art and drawing. Salisha will guide members through a watercolour paint night of a wild rose and members will have the chance to learn about its story and connection to Salisha and her family.

The event space sponsor is Pavilion Cowork and there will be an opportunity to tour the space. 

All proceeds from the event will go to the Vancouver Aboriginal Friendship Centre Society.

Artist Bio:

Salisha Old Bull was born in Eastern Montana and raised on the Flathead Indian Reservation in Western Montana. Her mother is Salish and father is Crow so she has a well-rounded bundle of Indigenous teachings from the Montana area. She was an aspiring artist as a child but chose to follow a different career path. She kept art in the background of her life and expressed most of her creativity through beadwork. She was taught to bead by her maternal grandmother, Rachel Arlee Bowers when she was a very young child and considers her earliest memories of beading at about her second grade in elementary school. She has been beading since that time and has supplemented her life educationally with five post-secondary degrees. She gains inspiration from traditional ecological knowledge from both Salish and Crow tribes and uses this imagery within her artwork. Aside from beading, she enjoys painting, photography, digital art, and drawing.
