Textiles Get Tactical at Gallery 101 - Canadian Art

Our show at Gallery 101 made it into Canadian Art. The experiment was worth it and I learned a lot. Thanks to E. Falvey for this summary of "Material Witness: Art, Activism and Fibre":

*The installation "How We Gather, PART III: Under Our Highways, Rivers Flow" was created with an artistic development and production residency made possible through the Dennis Tourbin Fund for Emerging Artists. The Dennis Tourbin Fund for Emerging Artists at the Community Foundation of Ottawa, is a permanent tribute to the greatly respected late Ottawa artist and his legacy. The fund seeks to encourage emerging artists to carry out creative works of art that cross disciplines and traditional boundaries. It also seeks to promote the presentation of art outside of the gallery walls into the public arena, reaching new audiences and engaging the community.
