Fragile Strength: Intersections in Geography, Memory and Human Impact

October 1 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Cheryl Wilson-Smith, 21 Pillows

Science North and The Muse are proud to present Fragile Strength: Intersections in Geography, Memory and Human Impact a Bluecoat Artist Talk with Cheryl Wilson-Smith.

Cheryl Wilson-Smith’s art explores the passage of time and her sense of place in the vast world around us. Landscapes—those remembered across generations, those affecting us and those we impact—resonate deeply with the artist as she works with glass and the elements to depict the fragile strength of the planet. Her sculptures serve as receptacles for memory and time while exploring the tensions presented as we try to walk responsibly in this world and contemplate the extent to which we all alter the landscape, for better and worse.

21 Pillows, the latest installation from glass artist Cheryl Wilson-Smith, explores human impact–deliberate and unintended—by inviting the audience to participate in the large-scale exhibition. In this talk, Cheryl Wilson-Smith will explore the extent to which genetic memory, environmental impact and altered landscapes give rise to the tensions, chemical and physical processes, and accidental design that ultimately inform her contemplative works in glass. The event will take place in the Douglas Family Arts Centre at The Muse and will be moderated by Bluecoat Ryan Land, Director of Education and Northern Programs for Science North.

Tickets are $5 in advance.  Purchase in person at the Douglas Family Art Centre or by calling 807-467-2201.  Walk-ins will be accommodated as space allows.
