Please join us as we celebrate the opening of solo exhibition, Weaving Back and Forth, featuring artist and past-resident, Kelsey Street.
Weaving Back and Forth is a collaboration between Street and her late Grandmothe,r Alice Mary Bennett, who lived a lot of her life on Woods Island — a small fishing community in the heart of the Bay of Islands that was resettled in the 1960’s. Inspired by Alice’s quilts, Street extends further within her own experiences and utilizes beadwork as a way of navigating both her Newfoundland settler and Indigenous heritage. The relationship between beading and quilting is a way for Street to connect multiple perspectives, and see through both lenses to co-learn and create an understanding of both cultures.
The opening will start with a by-donation BBQ, and the night will end with community bonfire in our backyard. Kelsey will be around to answer any questions about the work that you may have!
We gratefully acknowledge the support from Canada Council and Arts NL for our 2023 LAND programming.
