islandness

Vivian Ross-Smith + Jane Walker

September 16- October 11, 2017
Curated by Penelope Smart

This multidimensional programming project seeks to engage in dialogues about art, islandness and contemporary rurality in the Shetland Islands and in Newfoundland. Continuing upon conversations had throughout Land of Mirrors, Walker and Ross-Smith will exhibit works using traditional processes and adapted materials to allow gateways to arts engagement that extend beyond the contemporary art community in St. John’s. The exhibition will feature works and engagement relating to northern island culture involving alternative rug hooking and textiles, fish skin preservation and food preparation.
