Woodland Cultural Centre formally invites you to a special in-person event! Meet the Artist and Curator and hear about the inspiration behind our current exhibition, Anong Migwans Beam at Campbell House.
Woodland Cultural Centre is pleased to announce a new exhibition by artist Anong Migwans Beam from the Campbell House Museum with Guest Curator Elka Weinstein. Anong Migwans Beam grew up on Manitoulin Island, M’Chigeeng First Nations Reserve. Beam was born to two artist parents, Carl Beam, and Ann Beam. She was raised with a meaningful connection to both her artistic family roots and her rich ancestral heritage. Her work formats large oil paintings incorporating a multitude of image making approaches, including photo transfer, printmaking and collage which have been inspired by the physical history of her home, the natural landscapes, and the relationship between water and memory. Anong has not only used her homeland as an inspiration for her work but also for creating the actual paints that she uses.
Join us for this special Meet and Greet at the Woodland Cultural Centre on Saturday April 23rd at 2PM. This is an event you won’t want to miss!
