We are very excited to be exhibiting work at the City Atrium Gallery by wool weaver, Cheximiya. Born in North Vancouver, Cheximiya is from the Squamish Nation and has been an Aboriginal Ambassador for her Nation and the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre since graduating in 2006. Cheximiya began wool weaving in the summer of 2008 and has since continued to express herself through her pieces and to pass on the Squamish Nation tradition of wool weaving.
