Through ‘Woven Woods- A Journey through the Forest Floor”, Lorraine Roy explores the interconnectedness of art, science, and nature using
raw edge machine appliqué techniques and embroidery. With a B.Sc. in Horticultural Sciences
and decades of exploration in art textiles, the Dundas, Ontario artist spent five years realizing her
vision and approached the unique series with an eye toward what lies beneath the surface of the
forest floor. The results are beautiful, oversized, and infused with the symbolism of trees and
their communication patterns.
Roy’s exhibit will also be complemented by the work of esteemed artist Carmella Karijo Rother.
The Gatineau, Quebec artist has been creating simple and sophisticated organically shaped
vessels of rope and other textiles for more than two decades. Her Affinities exhibit will highlight
both previously produced and new works.
Visiting the Gallery is free. Parking is available.
