Crafternoon with April Matisz

Saturday, May 27, 2023
1:00 PM – 4:00 PM

Looking for a fun and family-friendly activity this Saturday? Visit the Gallery for Crafternoon, a self-directed art activity in our Creativity Centre. This month we are excited to welcome April Matisz, who will lead attendees in making their own paper cut collages. You can see April’s collages as part of her current exhibition Gathering near and far, still, on view at the Gallery until June 24.

April Matisz is an artist and mother living in Lethbridge, Alberta. She holds a degree in Biology (UVIC 2005) and Art Studio (UofL 2009). She was awarded the RCA C.D. Howe Scholarship for Art and Design for her undergraduate art studio work and an internship at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. She is the recipient of two Alberta Foundation for the Arts grants. Her painting series, Bodies Birthing Bodies, was recently purchased by the AFA for their collection. She is currently pursuing her MFA at the Emily Carr University of Art and Design.

Matisz’s practice spans drawing, printmaking, painting, and ceramics. Her research interests are varied: she explores the creatures and complex processes that make up the natural world, as well as the natural processes that have created us and continue to shape our lives. Her work draws on her knowledge of the sciences, as well as environmental philosophy and Phenomenology.

Gallery admission is complimentary admission until June 24 courtesy of ATB. Donations are welcome.
