About the Artist:
Betty Carpick grew up in Northern Manitoba, and currently lives alongside Gichigamiing in Thunder Bay, Ontario. In her work, she is constantly engaging with the natural world. The interdisciplinary and intergenerational ways that she offers stewardship of land and water are shaped by her Cree and Eastern European heritage. Her community’s lived experience with permanent watershed devastation for energy extraction amplifies the ways she uses art to hold conversations on caring for the living planet. Betty's practice includes ink making, textile arts, writing, drawing, sculpture, photography, performance, and installation. She intersects her own practice with communities of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds and invites them to engage the spirit of play, discovery, and collective responsibility for our planet.
