Organizer

Joyce Majiski

I’ve been a printmaker and papermaker since 1986~when I took my first courses in Mexico and have subsequently travelled world wide to attend residencies and exhibit my work. My artwork is influenced by past careers as a biologist and wilderness guide in the north. My work examines connection to place within a context of global environmental concerns. A Yukon resident since 1984, my first solo exhibition was at the Log skyscrapers (former home of the Arts Society) in 1987.
