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.

Both design and content are equally important in my work. I enjoy exploring colour, texture and shape-constructing and building form with paint. Incorporating found objects-craft items may seem to support humour in the work, but it primarilyhonours the craftswomen in my family. The content often deals with family history, issues of identity, politics, and the environment. Language has always been another element that I have incorporated in my art. Text figures prominently. I am a student of Anishinaabemowin. There is often anarrative element evident. Indigenousculture is an oral tradition and in my art, I can relate and interpret the stories passed down to me by my grandmother.
