I’ve been working on a new body of work these past four months to be exhibited at the Vernon Public Art Gallery from January 2016 until March of the same year. While some works were completed earlier in 2015, the majority were created in the latter half of the year for this exhibition. All works are part of my The Body, Stranger series. Please join me at the opening reception on January 14th, 2016 from 6-8pm.
I don’t talk very often of my teaching on my site but it’s a big part of my creative practice and feeds my research. I was honoured to have just received a Teaching Excellence Award at the Alberta College of Art + Design. I love creating a challenging and rewarding curriculum for my students and I’m so thrilled that it resonates. This will serve as great energy and inspiration as I prepare for the Winter semester
I was honoured to have been included in Di Carta/Papermade by curator Valeria Bertesina. The exhibition features works on paper from artists around the world and includes many artists whose work I admire greatly. The show opens on December 12th at Palazzo Fogazzaro in Schio, Italy. The theme of the biennial is Esthetics Aesthetics and the work that was invited of mine is two of my silkscreens to be exhibited as a diptych that deal with intersections between chronic illness and daily life. Title of the diptych is Conversations With Myself.
