“How Nice to Have a Hobby”
February 20 – March 31, 2014
Opening Reception: Feb 22, 2:00 PM
#1100 – 2253 Leigh Square Place, Port Coquitlam BC
Upcoming group art show that I have 5 of my mixed media, fibre art works in.The two works shown here –Vasilisa and her Doll and Baba Yaga the Odd- represent the quest for intuition and the challenges that one faces both internally and externally along the way. I think it will be a very interesting exhibition.
Here’s part of the write up on the Leigh Square website for the show: “Danaca Ackerson and Deanna Fogstrom, in collaboration with several guest artists explores the barriers to being taken seriously as a female artist; real or imagined, systemic or illusory, with the hope to generate conversations about high/low art, art/craft, dilettante/artist, gender bias and the notion of hobby vs. profession.
The exhibit ‘How Nice to Have a Hobby’ features art by women referencing traditional women’s pastimes such as crafts, hobbies and women’s work.”
