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:

More Information

The Carmichael Canadian Landscape Exhibition: Tradition Transformed was created in recognition of Group of Seven member, and Orillia native Franklin Carmichael. Now in its 18th year, this juried show calls on artists from across the country to submit work that embraces, challenges, comments, critiques, echoes, re-works or strengthens images, perceptions and interpretations of Canadian landscape through the artist’s chosen medium. Heavily rooted in Carmichael’s beliefs on traditionalism and classical modes of artistic expression, Carmichael himself was very much invested in contemporary artistic styles having been inspired by his native Canadian surroundings.

Crafting Conversations: Paper Makers respond to Climate Change

United States

Event Dates

The exhibition is opened from October 01, 2019 until January 15, 2020.

Artist

Katy DeMent, Albert Pantone, Treewhisperisrs

Opening Hours

Opened daily 6 am- 12 pm

Location

Steel Tower "T" Station (at Pittsburgh mass transit light rail station) 
Steel Tower" T "station

More Information

Curators, Katy DeMent (paper maker) and Ann Rosenthal ( print maker, illustrator) wanted to take an expansive view of climate change — that it is an opportunity to be and act in a world that is in relationship with one another and with nature. We have done this by demonstrating how artists are responding to these concerns, highlighting the materials they use to create their work. Not all of our materials and processes “leave no trace,” but all the exhibiting artists are moving in that direction, as our culture and society must also move toward.

How do the artists you’ve worked with for this show deal with their own practices and choices of materials as they affect climate change?
Both Katy DeMent and Albert Pantone reflect their local ecosystems through the reuse of sustainably sourced materials. They harvest invasive plants and grow plant fibers for their papermaking processes, a continuation of work they began years ago out of necessity. By engaging ephemeral materials, nothing is arbitrary and the actual surfaces, as well as the imagery, are referential.

Creatives for Climate (C4C) is a Pittsburgh-based collaborative of artists, designers, architects, climate communicators, climate scientists and climate educators. As part of its mission, C4C produces exhibitions that spark community dialogue around climate change. We were looking for an exhibition venue that would highlight some of the artists in our collaborative and approached Contemporary Craft’s (CC) Director of Exhibitions Kate Lydon.

More Information

Rocks are the building blocks of the cosmos. They are a crystallization of the natural world. They seem everything that we are not: enduring, solid, immovable. This is the space were Pat Alexander (US) wants to explore.

Wendy Briggs Powell (US) submerges large sheets of paper into dyed water. These “watermarks” are at once both simple and complex and reflect to her a lived emotional experience. Her work connects heart, head and hands while aiming to convey the subtleties and nuances of the human emotional condition.

The works of Anna Bludau-Hary (Germany) are mostly organic-looking objects are bizarre and yet beautiful and mysterious. They play poetically with inside and outside, with light and its shadow.

Paper artist, Aïdée Bernard experiments with the transformation of plants into paper fibres. She uses vegetable fibres to create kakemonos, installations, diaphanous sculptures and book objects where paper becomes a means of expression in its own right, fibre-sign, watermark, skin material: 'The paper I create is fed from here, from this land that carries me. It is the result of a metamorphosis of matter and speaks of my relationship to visibility, which I show you.'

More Information

The natural world is the driving force in this work. The growing cycle of botanicals from seed to plant, from tiny beginnings to exquisite forms, is at the root of the artists's process. Often, fibers are naturally dyed with indigo, osage, walnut, and cochineal. All are cooked, then beaten, using a 2000 year old process. The imagery presented in this exhibition expresses themes of beauty and a sense of reflection.
