The Gallery is honoured to exhibit 17 works from our Permanent Collection by artist Blake Debassige, who passed away last year.
The Cross Hill (1982)
“This is the name of a place on the reserve. One story told is that the bearwalk would frequent this low-lying marsh. There had been sightings and experiences with what the people called the bearwalk. Some say that is why the white wooden cross was placed there on a high point of land. Some people still believe in that presence.” – Blake Debassige
