Ingrid Mayrhofer's Tree of Life
Discover Ingrid Mayrhofer's Tree of Life, created by YOU, residents of Halton Hills over the course of her residency at the Acton Farmers' Market over the course of the past couple of months. Location and date tbc at the end of Ingrid's residency - check back for details! Ingrid Mayrhofer (BFA, MA, York University) is a visual artist, curator, educator, and community arts practitioner. Ingrid recently opened her own pottery studio in downtown Hamilton. Her work will be part of the exhibition “Voices” at the Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery, Waterloo, Ontario, opening on September 24. Residents in Halton Hills may recognize her printmaking works from the After Nature public art banners that were displayed in multiple locations in Town in 2020 and 2021. During her residency Mayrhofer worked with a “Tree of Life” motif, creating clay tiles that are mounted to form a mural. The animals Ingrid has selected represent species that are endangered or threatened in Ontario. This connects the project to the content of the banners, which Ingrid created for the Town of Halton Hills in 2019/20. This event is a part of the Ontario Culture Days Regional Hub Program.
This event is free.
