Call of the Heartwood: My Creative Journey with Trees
Ignatius Jesuit Centre
, Guelph

September 26, 2019
In this illustrated lecture, I will describe how trees wove their way into my art. This event will appeal to artists, environmentalists, gardeners, and anyone who exalts in the presence of trees. Specially featuring fascinating information about the Jesuit Pear tree, a historically significant fruit tree for Ontario. I will also present some works from my current touring exhibition of fabric wall hangings, Woven Woods, as well as more recent small works.
Doors will open at 6:30pm, there will be poetry & music with Anna Bowen and Magpie at 7pm, followed by my presentation at 7:30p
m. I believe it will be a “pay what you can” event.
