Art Hive with Alexia McKindsey (in-person): December 17, 10:30 am to 1 pm
In this exhibition, McKindsey explores the idea of place as a vessel that carries the traditions, memories and experiences of the people who have lived within it. Working with a collection of photographs and other archival material from her past and present domestic spaces, the artist presents a series of works including egg tempera paintings, crochet, weavings and oil paintings that embody the essence of these spaces.
