NorVA Exhibit - Catherine Blackburn - New Age Warrior

NorVA Centre

177 Green Street

Flin Flon, MB

Self guided Adult History & heritage Indigenous Visual arts Fibre & textile arts

New Age Warriors is a celebration of the strength, resilience, and ingenuity of Catherine’s ancestors and the women in her life today. The primary inspiration of Catherine’s artwork is her grandmother. Growing up, Catherine’s knowledge and memory of culture was informed as she observed her grandmother create traditional moose hide wear with detailed beadwork. In Armour, Ms. Chief of Change, Catherine honours her grandmother’s memory by incorporating her portrait on the blanket-inspired garment, adorned with the geometric patterns that are found in her grandmother’s work. Not only does this particular piece illustrate the immense strength of matriarchy in the family culture, but it highlights beading as a thread to connect generations of family members and artists. COVID PROTOCOL - Limited entry as per COVID regulations - Mask wearing mandatory - Sanitizing stations available - visitors are reminded not to touch the artwork

This event runs the duration of Culture Days.

This event is free.
