Author Leanne Prain will join artists Michelle Sirois-Silver and Katherine Soucie to discuss curiosity, innovation, and reimagining the discarded.
Innovation and the transformation of waste materials are at the core of this exhibition, which includes five hand-hooked art pieces and two installations: Raisons D’etres, a series of wrapped sewing machines and Hosiery Wall, a site specific installation using 150 lbs of hand-dyed waste hosiery. The works all incorporate discarded materials from the manufacturing process of Soucie’s clothing line. Bound by a shared passion for fibre as a medium, the artists also share a philosophy that challenges our notions about garbage. Exhibition runs July 27 – August 26, 2017.
