Event description

Description

This page is to RSVP for the artist talk. The Opening has no capacity limit and doesn't require an RSVP.

Exhibition: Thursday Aug 17, 2017 - Sept 28, 2017
Opening: Thursday Aug 17, 2017, 7-9 pm
Artist Talk: Thursday Aug 17, 6 pm Carousel Theatre Studio C, 1411 Cartwright St.

Come and join the Craft Council of British Columbia for a talk by Eleanor Hannan about her artistic process in creating the embroidered portraits that appear in the Portrait Lab exhibition.

Portrait Lab is about Eleanor's interest in the portrait through process, expression, technique, meaning, facial design and structure, materials, scale and drawing.

Yet all of the pieces are (in one way or another) embroidery, so that too is an element that makes its contribution to the overall impact of the exhibition in terms of variety of styles and stitches as communicators of experience and expression.

The Portrait Lab suggests a place where there is not just a single chemical element brewing. The element of the artist’s way of experiencing the portrait is introduced alongside another to generate a new way of knowing and seeing the portrait both for the viewer and herself. A new reaction is inevitable.
