MAWA: Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art : Samina Islam (Pakistan) Artist in Residence Artist Talk, June 27

Wednesday, June 27, 2018

7 – 8pm

MAWA, 611 Main Street

Free! Everyone welcome.

Join us for an artist talk by MAWA's artist in residence for the month of June 2018, Samina Islam (Pakistan).

Samina Islam is a mixed-media artist of mixed heritage (she has a Pakistani father and Dutch mother). She incorporates needlework on top of her images, which are usually printed on canvas, experimenting with diverse visual media to achieve the effect she is looking for. She is intrigued by people's traditions and surroundings, and her process is spontaneous and intuitive. Inspired by painting while on a residency in Japan, Islam will be painting what she encounters in Winnipeg, embellishing these works with embroidery, glass beads and sequins. She will document her time here through photography and video.
