2022 – Artists In Residence

Jane Whitten

July 25 – August 12

Jane Whitten is an experimental basket-maker and knitter presently living in North Bedeque, Epekwitk / PEI. Born in Australia, Whitten has spent much of her adult life in Eastern Canada establishing her craft practice while also pursuing her career as a special education consultant, first in Nova Scotia and, later, in Australia until her recent retirement.  

Whitten has a distinctive response to a variety of materials and techniques. Her works  engage the viewer, forcing them to reflect on issues impacting the environment and the urgency of taking action.

She has exhibited in group and solo shows in Canada, USA, New Zealand, and Australia.
