The title of this traveling exhibit reflects the desire and commitment to create a dialogue among several artists from Victoria B.C., Canada and San Diego. The chatter between the two cities began with Unnatural Wonders in 2006 at the Kinemacolor building in down town Victoria, British Columbia showcasing the variety and aesthetic innovation of a diverse group of west-coast artists. What brings the participant artists together for Push Pull is also their commitment to education and the desire to create exchange. What marks our works is a sense, either internal or external, of place unattached to location. Artists: Bradley Muir, Anna O'Cain, Megan Dickie, Blair Thornley, John Luna, Pasquale Verdicchio, Wendy Welsh, Richard Keely, Inga Romer, Leslie Ryan, Sandra Doore, Lynn Susholtz
