Scott Waters - Seldom Seen: Traces of a War
November 1-30 2012


Scott Waters is an artist with the Canadian Forces Artist Program (CFAP) "Seldom Seen - Traces of a War" is based on experiences of soldiers preparing for the early months of the Kandahar combat mission and, some six years later, soldiers deploying to the post-combat training mission. Seldom Seen grows from the specific experiences and considerations of one artist's perspective. We invite visitors to experience these selected works from the last five years during which Scott Waters was been a participant in the Canadian Forces Artists Program (CFAP).
