Join us for the launch of beloved Gabriolan author Naomi Wakan and photographer Elias Wakan’s book Time Together.

Time Together is a celebration in photographs and poetry of two established artists, Naomi Beth Wakan and Elias Wakan. For Time Together, Naomi chose the tanka form for her words as she feels this five-line form of Japanese poetry, a form that is probably the longest continually written of any poetry form, best contains images and thoughts in the most condensed way. Elias Wakan, though primarily known as a constructivist artist, also ran a slide bank of his many photographs for some years and he chose a selection from the bank for this book.

When: Saturday July 16, 2022 from 2:00pm – 3:00pm

Where: Gabriola library, 575 N. Road, Gabriola

Though not required, Naomi would appreciate guests wearing masks.
