Living with mental illness is a journey and a process. An emotional and physical roller-coaster that includes and involves loved ones, family and friends. In this artist talk, local fabric artist Cathie Ugrin presents her own experiences as a case study and talks about how the creation of her solo fibre art exhibit Feeling from Without and Within uses art as a release and a means to understanding. Join her on January 30, 2019 7 pm at C2 Centre for Craft as part of Bell Let’s Talk Day.
Cathie Ugrin is the recipient of the 2019 Manitoba Craft Council Bursary Award. The funds will used for her travel to Quilt Canada 2019 and studies there with Amanda McCavour. The Bursary will be awarded at the MCC’s Annual Member Show ‘For the Love of Craft’ on January 11, 2019.
Cathie will be selling new works (including wall hangings, table runners, coasters, and more) at CRAFTED. Her table is in the Boardroom on the Mezzanine Level. More info:
