Thursday, April 6, 2017 to Monday, May 1, 2017
Exploring the book as inspiration and as an art object.
Jan MacLeod is a lifetime resident of British Columbia. She was born in Ladysmith and after attending University spent a number of years in Terrace as a potter. She now resides in Vancouver and has worked in her studio in downtown Vancouver since opening her business Plant Papers in 1983.
Vesna was born in Yugoslavia and has a Masters in Textile Art and Design from Belgrade University of Arts. She creates 3 dimensional mixed medium objects in wire.
I treat the wire like fibre, weaving it on the fabric loom and then sewing it into bags of various shapes and sizes. The bag is a symbol of our consumer society. I give it an artistic rehabilitation.
