More Information

Caithness artist, Joanne B Kaar has been inspired by events reported in the John O’Groat Journal 100 years ago, when daring aviators, Harry G Hawker and Commander K Mackenzie Grieve, left St. John’s Newfoundland, attempting to cross the Atlantic non-stop. 
Engine problems resulted in them ditching in the Atlantic. Rescued, they were brought to Scrabster, Caithness, in the north of Scotland,  where a crowd had gathered to welcome them. They were later decorated with the Cross of the Royal Air Force.

In celebration of these aviators and the warm reception they received, we are connecting with Newfoundland again! For news and updates of paper aeroplane exchange events organised near you during 2019, visit the website of participating organisations:

It is the result of a metamorphosis of matter and speaks of my relationship to visibility, which I show you.'

Artist Statement

'There are words that have always attracted me…. difference, between, crack.
They have in them, a strength, a dimension where I feel good. This is how I see my work – in an intermediate position. On the edge of borders, on the edge of categories, working with a great freedom in two or three dimensions. The paths I explore, are numerous and meet in alternating games – between the plan and the volume, the transparency and the opacity, the unity and the repetition.'

More Information

The 8th International Biennial of Contemporary Textile Art WTA Sustainable city puts the focus on those artists who choose to express themselves through fibers and wefts, resignifying with their work the very concept of “textile art”, to limit it and make it explode in its multiple connotations of meaning.
Crossing borders and combining disciplines, the participating artists of the 8th International Biennial of Contemporary Textile Art WTA, start from the fibers to merge with new technologies and venture into different lines of research, hybridizing searches and questioning categories, but keeping the textile as an integrating concept. Using as main theme the concept “Sustainable City”.

The workshops and conferences will take place on September 18, 19 and 20 in different spaces of the Jardín Botánico Alfonso XIII of the UCM and Casa Do Brasil. Attendance is up to full capacity. To register you must pay the fee of the workshop through Pay pal or credit card through the purchase button on the website.

More Information

Joanne B Kaar is one of 6 invited artists working in different media who have been collaborating periodically throughout 2019 to create a joint response to the environment, history and community of Inverewe Gardens, each focusing on a different broad, intertwining theme.

Joanne B Kaar -  Mail Bag.

Weaving together facts, fiction & folklore about the local postal system and the beginnings of Inverewe Gardens, my research based artwork has a strong sense of place.

The postmen from the mailboat on its way from Stornoway to Poolewe purchased a fair wind of three knots from a wise woman in Stornoway. Against advice, they untied the third knot as they approached Inverewe. A storm blew up, they were dashed ashore and it blew all of the thatch off the houses in the area. Now, that mail bag was lost and it contained correspondence, packets of black earth from afar, and many of the seeds and plants ordered by Osgood H Mackenzie for his new walled garden. Found, months later, seedlings had started to grow out of it and letters were blown to the wind. Some of the letters were retrieved, but many have never been found................until now.
Envelopes: Hand tinted drypoint etching, mixed media franked in Thurso Postal Depot. Mail bag: Paper potato sacks and mixed media

Mail art :

In response to an international call out by Joanne B Kaar. On the writing desk in the smoking room at Inverewe House Museum, you’ll find correspondence sent to Osgood and his daughter Mairi made in response to my artwork ‘Mail Bag’ inspired by the facts fiction and folkore of the postal system in the area and the beginnings of Inverewe Gardens over 150 years ago by Osgood H. Mackenzie.

Made by the 6 artists in the invited residency collaboration, local schools and members of The International Association of Hand Papermakers and Paper Artists, mail art continues to arrive for you to enjoy and is put on display in Inverewe House museum as it is delivered. You‘ll also find my residency notebook next to the correspondence for you to write comments in. I hope to accession this mail art correspondence into the Highland Archives in Inverness when the exhibition closes.
