Artist Talks at 2 pm: Dena Seiferling and Stefanie Staples, and Allison Tunis.
The event is open to the public. All are welcome.
When Dena Seiferling and Stefanie (Wong) Staples first met, they discovered a mutual enjoyment for working within the space that drifts between childhood fantasy and an adult’s reality. While discussing a potential collaboration, the value of bird biodiversity and the preservation of at-risk bird species rose the forefront.
The need to feel beautiful and desired is universal, but the standards for how to achieve that are so restrictive that it leaves little chance for many to accomplish this feat. Allison Tunis’s embroidery pieces develop a discourse around cultural conditioning and societal implications of restrictive standards of beauty.
CHRONICLES OF A CONTEMPORARY DIRTBAG
A career with Parks Canada as a resource technician, avalanche technician, and twenty years of travelling in the backcountry lends to the conceptual content that embodies Jamie’s art jewellery work.
