Artist Talk with Naomi Bourque

February 23 @ 7:00 pm9:00 pm PST

Free
Using traditional techniques for gathering, tanning, embroidering, and embellishment, Nelson-based textile artist Naomi Bourque has reimagined the intersection of function and beauty in her latest project, ‘Medicine Harvest’ – a series of ten ponchos constructed with natural materials, including deer hide, antler, birch bark, and plant dyes.
Three of the ponchos in the series will be on display during an artist talk at the Nelson Museum, Archives & Gallery on Friday, February 23 at 7pm. Naomi will discuss her approach to her practice, ‘Medicine Harvest’, and the Indigenous Fashion Arts Biennial – the prestigious fashion event held in Toronto this spring. The ponchos are being created as part of an artist residency at Selkirk College; Bourque is a graduate of the Kootenay School of the Arts Jewelry and Small Object Design program (2013), the Sculptural Metal program (2015), and the Textiles program (2023).
The artist talk is free and open to the public, no registration is required. For more information about the exhibition and events at the Museum, visit nelsonmuseum.ca
