April 7 to June 23, 2018
Vernissage: Saturday April 7, 2018, 2 pm to 4 pm
Tributaries explores the power and presence of water — past, present, and future. This multimedia exhibit draws on local and regional experiences with hydropower, watersheds, water bodies, dams, and water flows — from Almonte to Maniwaki — incorporating historical elements related to immigrant labour and the wool industry. The exhibit features Emily Rose Michaud’s living tapestries, cyanotype drawings, maps, and paintings, layered with the sounds of water, Gaelic folk song, social and political speech, and out-takes from Esmerine’s atmospheric melodies.
The artist has received support from the Canada Council for the Arts for her exhibition: http://emilyrosemichaud.com/tributaries
