First Friday: Complexities of Belonging - an Artist Talk by Anne J. Steves
Free, everyone welcome!
The childhood crafts of Anne J. Steves, as an immigrant to Canada from Wales, continue to influence her practice. Embroidery, knitting, string games, storytelling and handwriting all share a repetitive quality that binds people to place. She is interested in the ways that re-learning and re-telling can reveal variation while providing a sense of stability in a constantly shifting world.
While in residence at MAWA September 1-24, Steves will be working with the applied craft of lure-making as a means of exploring the daring and delightful elements of making new connections in our environments.
