Complexities of Belonging – an Artist Talk by Anne J. Steves
September 6 at12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
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.
