MANITOHKEWIN // SACRED POWER MADE VISIBLE
July 4 - August 22
Conceived as a visual narrative and social commentary, Sharon Rose Kootenay’s Manitohkewin series explores the artist’s relationship between cultural practices, spiritual beliefs, and global concerns. Through a testament of visual art, Manitohkewin brings an increased awareness of contemporary Indigenous fine craft, as well as a glimpse into the identity of the Indigenous Northern Plains.
Sharon Rose Kootenay is a Metis artist working within traditional materials and one of Alberta’s principal interpreters of geometric beadwork design. Influenced by her Indigenous family connections, and living and material history, Kootenay’s studio practice reflects both personal and community perspectives, rendered with an expert use of colour, symmetry and form.
