Keepsake: Micah Adams & Amanda McCavour
May 17 @ 10:00 am – 6:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 10:00am, repeating until May 30, 2018
McCavour uses a sewing machine to create thread drawings. Stitch is used to explore various concepts such as connections to home, the fibers of the body and more formal considerations of thread’s accumulative presence. She explores embroidery’s duality- it’s subtle quality versus it’s accumulative presence and it’s structural possibilities versus it’s fragility. McCavour holds a BFA from York University where she studied drawing and in May 2014 she completed her MFA in Fibers and Material Studies at Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, PA. McCavour shows her work in galleries nationally and internationally.
Scale is ambiguous within Adams’ work. His preference of scale is that of little things, a world of the minute, of discarded fragments in his day to day experience. In his research, he looks for uncanny relationships to seemingly unrelated phenomena. Adams’ practice engages a playful balance between: humour and formal issues; size and perception of scale; longevity versus ephemerality and how these relationships inform value of work. In 2008 Adams received a BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax. His work is shown in Canada and the US.
