Artist Talk with Anne Steves – Next Wednesday March 8, 7pm

The Contextural Fibre Arts cooperative, clinic in partnership with ACAD, viagra order  would like to officially invite you to attend the upcoming artist talk with textile and thread based media artist Anne J Steves.   

Location: STANFORD PERROTT LECTURE THEATRE @ the Alberta College of Art + Design.    Date: WEDNESDAY, MARCH 8, 2017 @ 7PM

Anne J Steves is a visual artist working at the intersection of art/craft through textiles and thread based media. Her work examines the narratives of place and the ways in  which craft aesthetics can draw out connections between ourselves and the spaces (both constructed and natural) in which we dwell.

Steves’ work is often instigated by specific sites during artist residencies and independent travel, allowing for interaction with new conditions, communities and materials.

So far these have included a year in a Ranger Station, a collaborative canoe journey down the Rideau Canal, an exploration of string figure making in Victoria and a study of traditional wool blankets in Wales.

This talk is presented in partnership with Contextural Fibre Arts Cooperative.
