Woodland Cultural Centre invites you to the opening reception of our new exhibition, Doug Maracle: Come Walk With Me.
Doug is Mohawk Nation, Bear Clan from Six Nations of the Grand River and is known worldwide for his craftmanship and artist works. It wasn’t until more recently that his hometown discovered his talents.
This exhibition celebrates the diversity of Doug’s body of work. The work includes woodcarvings, prints, and pen & ink sketches meshed with a sense of humour, history and place.
The viewer will learn about what inspired Doug’s artistic practice, encourage visitors to understand the process of sculpting techniques, and encourage a younger generation to become interested in the connection between art and narrative of the Hodinohsho:ni culture within the context of the history of art in Canada. The exhibition provides a point of departure to open the context of craft vs fine art, identity, and process.
We will be hosting a reception with light refreshments on Saturday, October 14, from 2:00 – 4:00 pm. The exhibition will be available to experience from October 14th until January 6th, 2024.
