A young Tsawwassen resident, Kettleson’s design, A Bite of Summer, is a playful array of “untouched, half-eaten and one-bite-missing ice cream treats,” and showcases the beach lifestyle residents have enjoyed for generations. “I wanted to show that Tsawwassen is a great place to enjoy the summer season,” says Kettleson.
Cathey Tyler’s River of Life pays significant homage to Delta’s First Nation’s heritage. Creatively using flowing green lines to induce a feeling of movement, Tyler says her design “honours First Nation history along the [Fraser] River”. Tyler’s work recognizes the life that relies upon the river, creating a parallel to our contemporary dependency on the Fraser.
The vibrancy of Luna Nanahoshi’s Salish Sea is undeniably its most apparent quality. The diversity of colour plays a dual role, as the red, white, and black are symbolic colours of the Tsawwassen First Nation, while the colourful water represents the changing of the seasons. The First Nations imagery also serves a specific purpose, as Nanahoshi describes “the salmon, kayak, and crane are symbols of Delta.”
Cathey’s Three Grande Ladies is an incredibly detailedrepresentation of Delta’s architectural heritage. The three pristinely drawn houses are Burrvilla, which was built on River Road in 1906, Kirland House which was built in 1911 and Cammidge house, which was completed in 1914.
