Exhibition Dates: January 16, 2021 - March 6, 2021
Artist Talk: February 17, 2021 7:00 pm
Saskatchewan Craft Council is pleased to present Square Dance, a solo exhibition by Saskatchewan paper artist Cathryn Miller.
Cathryn’s paper and book works have won multiple accolades and awards. They have won the Premier’s Prize for the Outstanding Entry three times at Dimensions, the SCC’s biannual touring juried exhibition.
This intricate and extraordinary exhibition, created solely of paper, relies on textile tradition to reinterpret and expand on how memory is held and shared. In their artist statement, Cathryn describes their interest for unusual ways of sharing memories and communicating — such as infographics, cryptography, and the artist’s own personal iconography that takes the place of traditional words and pictures.
“The works in the exhibition are unified by the use of a single material — paper — and by the recurring use of the square as the primary design element. The use of paper rather than fabric allows the structures to expand into the third dimension, and to be seen without some of the emotional responses evoked by traditional textiles.”
A virtual artist talk will take place on Wednesday February 17, 2021 at 7pm CST hosted on Zoom. You can register HERE.
Square Dance is on view in the Saskatchewan Craft Council Gallery from January 16 to March 6, 2021.
