Join us for an in-person artist talk on Thursday, June 8, 6pm-7:30pm with exhibiting artist Elise Futoransky in conjunction with her exhibition Pattern of Place. The event is in-person and free to attend.
Pattern of Place is an exhibition of print and textile work that explores Ukrainian Canadian heritage through the use of repetition, tiling, and recombination of motifs drawn from Ukrainian visual culture and local Albertan plant life.
About the Artist
Elise Futoransky is an emerging artist living and practicing on Treaty 6 territory in Edmonton, AB. As of 2021 she is a graduate from the University of Alberta’s Bachelor of Fine Arts program. Her work is sourced primarily in printmaking and painting, and she draws on her Eastern European background for inspiration. Her practice often references folk practices, the narrow delineation between art and craft, and material culture. The tension between tradition and the contemporary is highly of interest to Elise, and as such her practice is not only a celebration of her heritage but also an investigation of how culture is filtered through the passage of time and distance.
