Prince George-based artist, tattoo artist, and art professor, Theresa Sapergia, just returned to the snowy hinterland from Montreal where she was promoting her new show, Canada Day. Hanging at Parisian Laundry until February 14th, Sapergia’s work reflects “on a post-apocalyptic Canada where animals have over taken (or taken back) nature” (source). It’s a treasure for me that Prince George gets to be privy to her company as an artist, small-business owner in a tirelessly patriarchal industry, an educator, and a feminist. If you happen to be in Montreal or traveling through make some time to see her show. And if ever, ever, you’re in Prince George let me know: we’ll get coffee and I’ll take you to her shop, Handsome Cabin Boy Tattoo.
