Out Of Our Chairs

Out Of Our Chairs

Celebrating the work of 8 women artists: Alex Scofield, Brenda Tyedmers, Sam R. Machado, Rebecca Humphreys, Catherine Stevens, Chrissie Rostek, Cheryl Theriault and Laureen van Lierop. Each of us has a different level of engagement with the time available for our work and opportunities to exhibit. For over two years we worked together to encourage each other’s artistic expression - visually and verbally.

“The Chairs” initially was meant to be a chance for artists to partner up and work on projects that would explore how to work in collaboration. Then Covid-19 happened. Not to be thwarted, we decided each of us would work on their own chair meeting the challenge “How will your chair be a summation or expression of your themes and explorations?”

Out Of Our Chairs has been an exciting project that has helped us all to stay focused on our individual practices while remaining connected with a group of artists that could not bubble together.
