Heroes & Villains
Wonder Women:Mindy Harris
What does it mean to be a hero? Wonder Women by Mindy Harris explores this theme with her hand-embroidered and watercolour portraits and quotes of heroic women from the past and present. Mindy will introduce you to a collection of women that are her heroes. Some are well known, while others are unknown to many of us despite their great contributions and impacts on culture, science, and history. Feel the power of the hero through Mindy's art.
& Big Shoes to Fill: Kim Danio
Mixed media "shoe and handbag" sculpture artist Kim Danio will explore her personal heroes as well as an array of other popular heroic figures. Kim Danio's definition of a hero makes little distinction between hero-icon-idol-celebrity-role model-legend. Drawing from categories of: humanitarian, pop culture, fictional (TV, books, movies), historical, Math and Science, literature, sport, local, and music. Expect the unexpected from an ordinary old purse, pair of shoes and upcyled materials. Many may remember her Nocturne exhibit from a few years back of the city of Halifax in shoes.
