Indigenous Art 2021 Artist, Bridget Melody

Welcome to Woodland Cultural Centre’s Indigenous Art 2021 Exhibition.

Established in 1975, this is one of the longest running multi-media exhibitions that provide artists an opportunity to exhibit and sell their work in a fine art gallery setting. WCC is pleased to announce the return of this annual Juried Exhibition and we can’t wait to share the selected works with the public. Indigenous Art 2021 will be running September 11 – November 20, 2021.

 

Meet Artist, Bridget Melody

Bridget Melody is a Toronto based Indigenous visual artist and singer/songwriter.  

As a self-taught artist, freedom of expression without the taskmaster of academia enables Bridget to create with playful abandon and zeal while still maintaining conscientious intent.  

Drawing from her Indigenous heritage – Mi’kmaq from her mother’s lineage, an integral part of Bridget’s artistry comes from her deep connection to land and spirit, along with a consuming passion to convey beauty and truth. 

Bridget has exhibited her work at community art events and festivals as well as at the Skylight Gallery on numerous occasions. Her art is also featured on her debut album with the same title, “Spirit Dance”. 

ARTIST STATEMENT 

As a multi-faceted artist, I thrive on flow and spontaneity in every form of expression, always striving to honor the process without judgment and to soar a little higher each time.   

I work primarily with acrylic paint, gels and textured mediums to capture a visceral and dimensional feel to landscape, portraits and still life images.
