Join us to hear the artists in Converging Lines speak about their art practice. Artists Kristy Cameron, Elliot Doxtater-Wynn, Shaun Hedican and Cree Stevens will share and discuss their art, influences and life. The panel discussion will be followed by a reception at the Gallery.
Converging Lines features the work of regional Indigenous artists and draws inspiration from the connective, emanating power lines found in the works of established Anishnaabe artists such as Norval Morrisseau, Roy Thomas and Ahmoo Angeconeb. Though each artist shares elements of their artistic approach and conceptual underpinnings with the innovative and groundbreaking work of their predecessors, the work by Kristy Cameron, Elliot Doxtater-Wynn, Shaun Hedican and Cree Stevens also speaks to current issues and sheds light on contemporary ways of making art.
Moreover, the paintings and sculptural-work featured in this exhibition also make thematic connections between each participating artist, and of course, highlight the ideas converging within their own unique practices as artists. Viewers will have the opportunity to contemplate the lasting legacy of the Anishnaabe-style painting and the provocative new ways in which Indigenous artists envision the world around us.
