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?

Title Page of my soon to be book!

I have been using http://www.blurb.ca to publish my book Patched using the funding I received from the Waterloo Arts fund. I chose to work with Blurb because it is very user friendly and easy to use. I have only been working on it a couple of days and I am almost finished!

Like most publishing sites Blurb offers various sales at discounted rates so you can save money and get your printing done! Check out the title page sneak peek and let me know what you think? Do you like the background colour? Let me know in the comments 🙂

Working on my Patched Publication

I have been working on my Patched Publication taking photos of patching trees in the Waterloo Region. I am aiming to have my publication completed by the end of December and hope to have the books distributed to local libraries and available for sales on my website in the new year. I will let everyone know my launch day soon! In the mean time enjoys some photos! For more be sure to check out my instagram @jackiepartridge_ or #patchedproject#patchingtrees
