See my Patched Exhibition Preview!

I invite you to join me in celebrating my opening reception at the Kitchener Public Library for my solo exhibition Patched. 

I have added some photos here as a sneak peek of some of the work you can expect to see in the exhibition.

The opening reception will be from 7-8:30pm on Thursday May 7, 2020.

There will be sparkling water and refreshments!

Patched is an ongoing series of photographs where map paper (made from maps of places I have been to) is embedded into trees where the bark naturally peels away as an act of offering or mending.

The photographs displayed in the exhibition were all from my book Patched that was published with the support of the Waterloo Arts Fund in 2018. There will also be some new and recent work from this series too! (The featured photos are all recent from this past summer)

Mark my opening reception on your calendars!

See my Exhibition at the Button Factory Arts in Waterloo!

Not everyone is from Waterloo, ON so I wanted to share my exhibition at the Button Factory Arts in Waterloo, ON.

The exhibition is from January 17- February 1, 2020.

The group exhibition is called Friends & Lovers and is curated by Tee Kundu.

There is a variety of art forms including photographs, paintings and a community quilt project among others!

I have three works shown at the exhibition. The two smaller photographs are from my Patched series where I embed map paper into areas of the tree where the bark peels always. The larger photograph is titled Nestled and included twisted strips of map paper.

Here is the description of the exhibition:

If love is a feeling and care is an action, they are always engaged in conversation. As we navigate our lives, these conversations become increasingly important in shaping our stories. Drawing on personal lived experiences as archival knowledge of histories and possible futures, our identities are forged through our relationships with one another. Friends & Lovers explores the ways in which care, vulnerability & intimacy contribute to our sense of community. Who are you in love with? And how?

Ebook Patched by Jackie Partridge

Patched was published in 2018 with the Waterloo Arts Fund. It is a book of 38 pages- a collection of images colour printed of trees around Waterloo Region that have been altered by adding map paper pulp in areas where the bark has naturally peeled away. I see this act of patching trees as a form of mending or offering of paper back to the tree. In addition to the photographs in my book- there are a series of nature appreciation poems. At the back of the book I have included information about my art process.

I sell my published hard cover book for $50. And I sell my ebook for $11.99. The Ebook is a digital PDF version of my hardcover book.
