In spring/summer of 2021 Caitlin will collaborate with SNAP and other community members to help develop the outdoor space at the rear of SNAP’s new facility including a wall based work at the printshop / rear north west entrance.

Caitlin Bodewitz is an Edmonton based artist, originally from northern British Columbia. She pursued her passion and completed a Bachelors of Fine Arts with Honors in Printmaking from the University of Calgary in 2012.

Bodewitz pushes the boundaries of traditional printmaking by incorporating silkscreening with drawing, photography, and woodworking. Her work is deeply rooted in celebrating, educating others, and protecting the natural world. A great deal of her current body of work depicts both flora and fauna species at risk within Canada— sea otters, caribou, mountain holly fern— with a goal of creating conversation around conservation.

 

The In Community Artist Residency is made possible by the Edmonton Arts Council’s Connections and Exchanges Organizational Initiatives Grant.
