My work is currently featured in an Artist Spotlight Exhibit July 11 to August 24, 2019 at the Alberta Craft Gallery at C-Space in Calgary. I am showing some new experiments in print and Jacquard weaving as well as a couple pieces from my Knit Objects series. All work is available for sale.
I am excited to be sharing “Stone Swatch” series alongside the prints that I used to create images for these small Jacquard weavings.
The ”Stone swatch series” began with the idea that something very small - like a handful of stones collected on a camping trip with my daughter - can act as a kind of distilled index of the land itself. Monoprints of these same stones were used as source imagery for this collection of handwoven Jacquard swatches. Each small piece of cloth is a unique tactile souvenir of a specific site, providing an object for contemplation of the natural landscape and our place in it. As a descendent of settler culture in Treaty Seven territory, I am working to navigate the legacy of my ancestors in order to better understand how I occupy territory both as a settler and a child of this land.
The opening reception is this Thursday from 5 - 8 pm at the Alberta Craft Gallery at 1721 – 29 Avenue SW, Suite #280. The gallery is open Wednesday - Friday 11am-5pm and Saturday 10am-5pm.
