Artist talk: Tracy Peters
March 14 at 12:30 p.m.
Room 2M70 (2nd floor of Manitoba Hall), The University of Winnipeg
Exhibiting artist Tracy Peters will discuss her artistic practice and the work currently on display in her Gallery 1C03 solo exhibition «Littoral Landscape». Following her illustrated presentation, there will be a question and answer period with the audience.
Tracy Peters is a Winnipeg-based multidisciplinary artist who examines relationships between organic and human-built environments. In her site-responsive studio practice, she responds to intersections of time, space, light and weather. Many years of darkroom practice initiated her research into fragile materials and the emotive power of surfaces. Her installations and videos are largely based in the photographic process. In 2014, Peters had her first major solo exhibition, SHED, at aceartinc. in Winnipeg. She has been awarded grants from the Manitoba Arts Council and the Winnipeg Arts Council, as well as residencies that include a partnership between Void Gallery and the Social Studios and Gallery in Derry, Northern Ireland, the Deep Bay Residency program in Riding Mountain National Park, Canada, and the ArtCenter/South Florida-MAWA artist exchange program in Miami Beach, FL. Her work has exhibited across Canada and in Europe.
An illustrated pdf publication related to this exhibition, featuring a response essay by Willow Rector, will be available on Gallery 1C03's website by early April.
Gallery 1C03 gratefully acknowledges financial support of the Manitoba Arts Council for this project.
