Feminist Futures at MAWA, Winnipeg Manitoba

I went to the MAWA (Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art) Feminist Futures show, open to all MAWA’s members. 

I love MAWA’s member shows as they show the astounding versatility of women artists in Winnipeg! There were three standout textile pieces in the show. I love how represented textiles is in female-only shows. It’s nearly impossible to separate working with textiles and its relationship with gender. 

Show is open until Sept 29th 2017, with a Closing-Party on Sept 30th for Nuit Blanche. MAWA is located at 611 Main St Winnipeg Manitoba.

This work is viceral, whimsical and has an incredibly dynamic shadow that I’m really digging.

What delicacy! It brings to mind a blooming flower on a rock face.
